Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens, by extending and shading the end of the lens.
A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.
Moreover, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface, to further prevent or limit lens flare.
And since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.
The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

I’ve read several reviews and watched several videos where people complain about how flimsy this product can be. And after reading all those I bought it and I can tell it is really good and no signs at all about flimsiness.
have a black one just like it. bought this to match the silver colored lens. Like matching socks with shoes. Looks nicer on Sunday or any day.
Good quality at a reasonable price. I would recommend it to others.
Not bad good made out of plastic but seems to be protecting lens
Fits well and protects the lens. It's all plastic, but so is the lens body, so that's fine with me.
Arrived in pristine condition. Perfect fit.
No discernible quality difference to the official lens hood I have for the 25mm 1.8. This one looks good, fits on smoothly and firmly in both positions. Yes, it feels flimsy being made of plastic (hence no 5 stars), but so does the aforementioned Olympus hood... £12 vs £33? No brainer.
Rather flimsy, cheap alternative to the expensive Olympus offering. Needs a bit of trimming of the plastic to make it fit properly, something that should have been done in production. Still, you get what you pay.......
The hood is a trifle big and makes the lens look enormous. The fixing is a bit hit and miss and will wear in time. It has already fallen off. I am considering buying a different one
A poor fit for the lens. Difficult to attach properly.
light, easy to store (the lens fits inside it in the camera bag).
Not a great fit and very easily scratched. Better to spend more. Oh! Well, live and learn.
Just the job and much cheaper than the branded item.
Not a good fit on the lens
Perfect fit and good quality. It does the job perfectly and stores on the lens ust like the OEM hood. Very satisfied.
Fitting to lens is a bit poor but the hood does its job. As with all hoods very expensive for what is, in effect just a piece of plastic.
It is what I expected
Passt und ist eine kostengünstige Alternative zum Original. Das Original ist vielleicht etwas besser, aber auch 3x so teuer. Mir reicht das.
Tutto ok. 4 stelle solo perchè non ha la precisione di diametro al 100%. Comunque praticamente perfetto
Me encanta para que mis fotos no salgan veladas. Lo uso muchos en los días soleados para fotografiar a mis hijos practicando su deporte favorito. :)
