Hey all, So I'm thinking of getting a hood for my 12-50, but it's really expensive (I know, there are some third party ones, and I'm considering those, but in general for hoods I prefer OEM, as they tend to have better fitment). The only real reason I want it is to keep rain off the front element...I love that the lens/body (E-M5) are weather resistant, and it's held up to quite a bit of rain for me, so I'm very confident in using it in less than ideal environments). But...I always have to be careful with the front element, which is a bit of an annoyance. I have an extra UV filter kicking around at home that I might toss on there during the rain, so I wipe that and not the front element, but keeping rain off of it in the first place would be the best. I know that every rain is unique, but I'm looking for a GENERAL CONSENSUS...in your experience...how useful (or useless) has the hood been in keeping the front element dry? Thanks!
