This works perfectly with my X100S. Has both the filter ring and hood. Can use with or without a filter--I use it with a filter, but either way it will help protect the lens. You could just use the filter ring and filter without the hood if you don't want the hood projection out too far. Nice product, matches the camera paint perfectly.

Blocks Flash and Viewfinder

It is well made, but it obscures a portion of the optical viewfinder, and it blocks the flash, both of which are important in my use of the camera.

Unnecessary product

Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

Purchased but never used. I use lens hoods on all of my DSLR lenses but never use this on my Fujifilm rangefinder. Not much of an issue with lens flare and it is easy to shade the lens with a hand or hat with such a small camera that I never find myself using the dedicated lens hood.

Solid build, easy to follow instructions and perfect fit. I don't understand why you would buy the OEM part for 4x the price of this.

Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

Same as Fujifilms' own but cheaper.  You can attach filter and hood at the same time without the lens hitting the filter when macro is engaged.  Fits on all x100 series cameras including X100F

    Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

    While placing my order for the X100T, several accessories were suggested, including this Vello brand lens hood. I didn't give it much thought as to the qulity of Vello products, as I have several of their items purchased for my DSLR kit. The hood attaches to the X100T with no issues. There is a slight hue difference of the silver compared to the X100T body, but I don't care. It's already paid for itself, having protected the front lens element and barrel from minor knocks and bumps as I walk about. The price is very affordable, so it's a win-win.

      Got this for my X100T. I can't imagine the Fuji equivalent could be any better for more than three times the price. Fit and finish are equal to the Fuji equivalent.

      Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

      I originally but the Fuji hood which saved my camera from a fall. I decided to go with an aftermarket hood to save money. Build quality is comparable to the Fuji good but the color is slightly off.

        Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

        The quality is so good I can't tell it's generic brand and for only a fraction the price of an OEM. The hood does block a little bit of the OVF anyway I only use the adaptor ring for attaching protection filter. Nice packaging too. I wished it's sold in Canada. B & H had it delivered in no time.

            Great product. fits well on my x100t. Only issue was removing the current ring on the camera. It took a google search and watching a youtube video to get the courage to put a little elbow grease on unscrewing the ring.

              I purchased this hood and ring 2 days ago. The quality is perfect but the problem is that it is not attachable to my x100t lense. I wounder how other customer use it on this model lense?

              Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

              I have read reviews about this particular hood before my purchase and I wanted a fresh and open opinion. On my copy, the color variance is not that noticeable....you have to really really sit there and look at it, it fits well and I personally leave it on all the time because I wanted a small walk around camera at the ready. From the EVF, you can see the hood but it's not a big deal, I kind of like it. I was going back and forth about buying this hood or the Fuji one, I made the right choice!

              Excellent Hood

              By Fuji_Nikon_Guy

              from Connecticut

              Comments about Vello LH-X100 Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver):

              I purchased this hood and ring along with an X100T. It fits the camera perfectly, is of excellent quality and has a finish which very closely if not perfectly matches the finish of the camera. You really have to look very closely to see any perceived, slight, subtle difference in finish if it's there at all. It is very good. The adapter ring threads on snugly without issue and the hood itself attaches via bayonet with tight positive action.

              The adapter ring has threads to mount filters to and a pinch lens cap can be used too.

              All in all an excellent alternative to the original manufacturer hood.

                  While I can't compare to the Fuji part, works perfectly at much less cost.
