Vello LH-48 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated silver Vello LH-48 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Olympus's Zuiko 12mm f/2 ED lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements

    Vello LH-48 reviews

    LH-48 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good fit No problem with this hood working with Olympus 12mm lens. Easy to attach and remove, and about half the price as the olympus hood.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well Less expensive than Olympus brand. Keeps glare off lens front as it should. Odd attachment with a built-in screw that tightens a metal band to hold this on the lens. Haven't had it long enough to assess durability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lens hood This lens hood is constructed well, easy to use, and attractive. I have bought other third-party hoods for my Olympus lenses in the past, and this is of higher quality than the others. I can see no drawbacks to buying this reasonably priced hood as an alternative to the official one offered by Olympus. Since the Zuiko 12mm is a metal lens, I was a little worried about whether the hood would match it in hue. My concern proved to be unfounded. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Well Built I visited the B&H store a couple weeks ago, got there a bit late, just as they were closing for the Sabbath. The salesperson was extremely patient and allowed me to test the hood. It's not all metal but what needs to be is. This is really well made and I expect it to last. I refuse to buy an Olympus hood, although the salesperson suggested one, because it should be included with the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Works as it should, it does a decent job of controlling flare and protecting my lens (I don't use a filter). No witness marks from attachment and the 'locking' mechanism is secure. I'd buy it again, especially as it's half the price of the Olympus offering.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good Works well but it attaches with a sort of set screw which you have to be very careful not to over tighten. Also there is no guide to prevent misalignment. The hood is rectangular so it needs to be aligned properly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality substitute I have Olympus branded lens hoods for other lenses I own, and the quality of this lens hood is on par with them at about half the price. It fits just fine and so far, I haven't had any issues with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value A lens hood should have come with the Olympus 12mm lens, especially at this price point. Anyway, this hood is a great value compared to the Olympus priced one. Thanks for offering a replacement Vello.
