    Olympus LH-55B reviews

    LH-55B Lens Hood for Select Olympus Lenses is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job ! I bought this lens hood for the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 lens that comes with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera. I believe Olympus should provide these with their lens but they decided not to, so I ordered this one that fits perfectly. It's a good quality hood and it does its job accordingly. The inside of the hood is covered with a matte non-reflective felt of some kind, which is a good idea to prevent any light reflection on the lens front element.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should be included with lens Well made, but plastic, and can't be mounted on the lens in reverse.$ bucks for something that should have been included with the lens. Come on Olympus ... get with the program.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is what it is - a nice hood Look - there's not much than you can say, other than the fact that this hood works. But I've got to be honest here and admit that although this is the hood required for the Olympus 12-50 zoom lens, they are of very lightweight plastic construction - so don't expect a masterpiece. It does what it's supposed to do and clicks on quite simply. Nooooo, it's definitely not a metal masterpiece. Quite frankly, I would think this hood would cost more like $10 - $15 - but hey, I don't make the pricing decisions at the corporate level.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from An expensive peace of plastic ! This is my second Olympus I bought but time as changed and no always for the consumer interest! When I got my OM-1 in 1978, All my lens came with his Hood. It was a part of the lens. Today, I just can't believe that we have to buy separately a part that should be included with the lens. Worst, this peace of plastic cost $$. I just hope that a generic will be available soon at half the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Lens Hood I bought this hood for my M.Zuiko 12-50 mm kit lens, for which it is specified. It fits fine and clicks into place as it should. Unfortunately Olympus did not design this hood to fit reversed over the front of the lens. So, when I pack it up into the lens pouch or camera pouch, I have to either let it sit reversed unsecured or remove it from the lens. That means it has to be packed in the deployed position. It doesn't bother me as much unless using a compact case. Either way, its a good unit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hood for the 12-50 This lens hood is what Olympus recoomends for the 12-50 lens. It works ok. It seems like it is a little thin for such a lens. Still it does shade the lens ok and protect the lens ok. I will give the lens a 4 star for these things. The only real problem is that the hood doesn't lock on the 12-50 when reversed for storage. This made me drop the star rating down one to a 3-star. Still Olympus should have included the lens hood with the lens at the time of purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm speechless I'd have to say I've never before experienced the sensations I feel when I gaze upon this lenshood. Suffice to say, I haven't been able to sleep since the purchase. Words excape me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens Hood for Olympus 9-18mm micro 4/3 A useful addition to the 9-18mm lens. Lens hoods help avoid flare, increase contrast, and offer protection for the front element.
