I bought this to replace the very nice metal hood that's included with the Leica 15.f1.7. However, the OEM hood could come off fairly easily and I worried about losing it. So, I bought this to replace it. It works very well, and doesn't vignette even if screwed into a UV Haze filter. I leave it permanently mounted on the lens, and the only fault I can find with it is that with this hood on, the lens is longer than with the OEM hood. Not a biggie.
I bought this hood for my panasonic lumix leica dg summilux 25mm F1.4 lens.
Looks very much like an OEM part, and fits in well with my Panasonic 20mm 1.7 II lens. Of course it extends the lens a bit, and the way it screws in makes it look like a zoom lens that's partially extended all the time. But it does its job well, feels like a quality item and I don't think I'd take this lens anywhere without it at this point. The only downside is that you can't use filters sized for the lens with the hood - you have to either get new filters to fit the hood, or take the hood off to use filters (the hood isn't necessary in all situations anyway).
This is a very well made metal hood that fits my Panasonic 14mm f2.5 lens perfectly. As others noted, you cannot use the stock lens cap with this hood. What they do not realize is you can use a standard 55mm lens cap or screw-in filter on the front of this hood. Considering 55mm lens caps are very cheap I don't consider this a problem. Because the hood isn't vented, when you use such a lens cap no dust can get to the lens.
Fits nice and snug on the panny 20 mm 1.7 pancake lens. Normal quality metal construction. The squeeze feature cap make it easy to remove and keep dust out. I wanted to use a clear filter to protect the lens so I attached a 46 mm BW clear filter to the lens and then the hood to the filter. There are threads within the hood but the 46 mm filter won't fit within the hood. I'm guessing a slightly smaller filter would fit inside the hood, possibly a 45 mm or 44 mm. That would reduce the over all profile of the lens and hood combo. The setup I have at the moment is in the photos I attached.
I'm using this hood on a Panasonic Lumix 14mm F2.5 and it shades the lens perfectly without vignetting. The main reason I use this hood is to protect the front element from hits and pokes since I don't use a lens cap. The 46mm threads are smooth and screw on and off without a hitch. Fit and finish of this aluminum hood is good, and the matte finish is attractive in an industrial sort of way. The interior of the hood is painted with flat black paint to nix reflections. Leica style vents improve visibility with bright line viewfinders but reduce protection from dust and moisture. For seven bucks, this is a great deal and an effective and well fitting hood.
Bought this for my Olympus 17mm lens. Reading a lot of conflicting things about what size cap this takes. Some say 55, others say 52. I found the 52 to be to be the best fit and the 55 too large
The hood is perfect but the cap that come with the hood is too big. The cap is 55 mm which is not fit the hood. I have 52 mm cap and it fits well. Therefore, my recommendation is not to buy the cap that come with this hood.
