    Is there anyone out there with the genuine Olympus LH-48H hood for the 17mm f/1.8 lens as well as a 62mm lens cap? I'm wondering if I could fit a 62mm lens cap over the end of the hood as opposed to getting a center pinch cap.

    It works but nit that well. I just tried it. I would suggest you go and get a lenscoat soft cap. They are pretty handy.

    I am using a Panasonic 46mm center-pinch lens cap on my 17mm with lens hood. The hood stays on the lens all the time, and I never have an issue taking off the lens cap. I also bought a small Panasonic lens bag as well that the lens is stored in when it is not on my camera.

    Centre-pinch caps should have become the industry standard 50 years ago.
