    ... if you have just figured out that the Olympus 45mm hood reverses for storage, after owning said accessory for a few months? :rofl:

    I was so used to m4/3 hoods not doing this, but gave it a shot last night and, what do you know, it actually works. It would have saved a bit of bag space over the past couple months if I would have figured this out earlier (or maybe read the instructions?) Doh.

    Still, kind of a nice surprise.

    I always assumed almost every hood does that O_O The Pany 14-42mm lens does it anyway.

    you could afford a hood after buying an expensive lens that the manufacturer was too tight to give you one with??? Go you!!

    I read today that even the £800 75mm F1.8 does n't come with one :-(

    The 20mm fits inside the 45mm hood, creating a neat little two lens package. That is how I carry them.
