Are any of the hood options for the Oly 75mm reversible?

    As the title states. I can't seem to figure out if the hood can be reversed back on to lens for storage. Someone must have tried it. Anyone know? Many thanks.

    The Olympus hood reverses.

    Anyone tried the JJC LH-J61F Professional Hard Lens Hood for Olympus 75mm F 1.8 "Replaces LH-61F"? [seen on eBay for $US38.99]? And would that reverse? And does anyone know what the cheapest non-Oly lens cap would be? Thanks.

    I have the JJC hood and yes it does reverse. It's quite nice really and the finish matches perfectly too.

    The JJC hood is excellent. I wouldn't be surprised if it is made by the same factory as the original Olympus one.

    Thanks, folks. I have just ordered a JJC hood from HK on your collective recommendations. It and a B&W 58mm UV [also from HK] should arrive well before the lens, which I am eyeing on eBay — the finances are about halfway there from eBay sales; my current auctions finish tomorrow [Mon] night.

    Anyone interested in a barely used Rokinon 85mm f1.4 [bought about Oct last year], Olympus 4/3 mount, with Hoya UV and additional metal, screw-in lens hood, with plastic lens hood cap [the provided plastic petal hood seemed fragile and I like to be able to use a screw-in hood to rotate a CP]? It is one of the items finishing tomorrow night. I can point you to the auction ad.

    Another question — if the 75 comes with a cap [plastic?], why are people shelling out huge bucks [more than the third-party hood] to get an authentic Oly or 3rd-party lens cap? Is it just dressing up, as it were? With hoods and caps I believe in pure functionality over aesthetics [including headgear]. Thanks again.

    Once the hood is attached it is near impossible to take off/put on the Oly cap. I usually leave the cap off when I have the hood attached since its such a pain in the a**. Olympus should really switch to the center pinch caps used by so many others.

    RainbowImaging has the JJC Hood for $26.99 and Free Shipping - It's a nice Hood and it does reverse.

    Olympus LH-61F Lens hood, Olympus, M.Zuiko ED 75mm F1.8 Lens

    RainbowImaging also has a 58mm screw on Silver Lens Hood that will fit the Olympus 75mm for $4.89
    58mm Silver Tele Hood, Olympus LH-61F Lens hood, Olympus, M.Zuiko ED 75mm F1.8 Lens

    RainbowImaging prices are better on their Site than the RainbowImaging / Amazon Prices.

    I have made several order from Rainbowimaging with great service :2thumbs:

    Olympus does make and sell a center pinch 58mm Lens Cap that should work great with this hood.

    Olympus - 58mm Lens Cap LC-58C - Lens Accessories - Accessories | Olympus
    Adorama - Olympus LC-58C Front Lens Cap 260037
    B&H - Olympus LC-58C 58mm Lens Cap 260037 B&H Photo Video

    There are many other name brand and generic center pinch lens caps in this size.

    I recently purchased the JJC hood from Rainbow Imaging as well.
    Looks great, feels solid and yes, it's reversible.
    A great price too!

    My 75mm lens hood came with a center pinch Olympus cap to replace the stock lens cap. Was nestled right in the box with the hood.
