    I´ve tryed a few hoods for these two lenses and here´s the ones i recomend.

    For the Oly 12mm F2 the JJC feels and looks the best i think.
    I tryed a circular one to but it looked big since the lens is quite wide.

    For the Oly 45mm F1.8 i like the LIM´s hood the best, I tryed a smaller circular one here also,
    but the lens feelt very long and thin with it, this one makes it feel much more pro.

    Nice, GRID. Are these bayonet mount or screw-in hoods?

    I bought a screw in hood for my Oly 12 and 45mm a while back, but I wouldn't mind a reversible bayonet mount. Probably use it a lot more often if I didn't have to screw it in place.

    The one on the 12mm goes on the outside of the lens, then there´s a screw on the outside that make it stick, just lika the original i think?

    The one for the 45 is filterthread screw on, but it needs a filter there already but i was lucka to have a macrofilter in the right size, so i just removed the glas from it :)

    Good call on the one for the 12mm...

    I just bought the same one for my 12mm. I recommend it highly. I use an inexpensive screw on for my 45mm f 1.8. It works well too.
