Hi All, I intend to purchase a lens hood for my Oly 17mm F/2.8. From searching online I can really only see that 2 alternatives exist, and was hoping for some feedback from users of each. The first is the 37mm threaded metal RF style hood that has the 2 RF slots. These are available cheaply online and look nice. I can recall reading here that due to the slots in the hood, the effectiveness of this style of hood is limited to protecting the front element of the lens. The amount of flare protection it provides is limited. The 2nd type available is a folding rubber hood that also contains a 37mm thread, but has the advantage of a 2nd thread on the front side for filters etc. The hood folds back over the lens when it is not required. I assume from the design that the rubber hood is slightly larger than the metal hood (deeper and wider) and has no RF styled slots. Therefore I assume it would provide protection to the front of the lens and be more resistant to flare. It may partially block the use of the VF1, but that is a minor issue. I would be interested to hear the opinions of members that have used either or both. I would need to order these online so therefore it is a bit of a guessing game, without having the opportunity to test these for myself. Thanks in advance.
