    hi all,

    does anyone know if the rectangular lens shade is included with this lens? there is no information about that or how to buy one if it not included, yet all the posted "first looks" (you tube especially) show it. just wondering how much more i need to spend.

    hey mitch... for $800 you'd think that the shade would be included! But I think it isn't... I'll know Monday.

    Like all Olympus MFT lenses, a shade is not included. There is a matching silver rectangular shade for it as an optional extra but don't know about availability.
     
  6. Just wait a little while for someone to start selling identical unbranded versions for $10-20.

    You get front and rear caps, that's it. Hood is optional.

    thanks

    thank you all for the info. i am new to the world of m4/3 and have found this site to be very friendly and helpful. seems strange that the lenses do not come with a hood, coming from the world of nikon, and stranger that the information is relatively hard to find. how can they sell a lens and not at least sell the hood right besides. oh well.....

    thanks again!

    Gotta love entrepreneurism! At $110 for the branded version, I think I'll hold off for the unbranded.

    Just out of curiosity, where does the $100 figure come from? Everyone agrees that it's the price, so I'm not disputing it, but I haven't seen it legitimately for sale anywhere, so I don't understand it. It's a whole lot more than Oly's other hoods (probably combined with a healthy dose of wishful thinking)...

    Is eBay what people are citing? (I would expect those prices to come down once it's officially releases on Olympus, Amazon, etc.--again, it could just be wishful thinking though!)

    There don't appear to be a lot of sources at present. I do think the pricing will come down in time... hopefully fairly soon! :smile:

    Right?!? As long as I haven't missed an official announcement, there's still hope!
