What do you all use....
Links welcome....
I saw a few on eBay for Sony camcorders that may be shallow enough... not sure though... Can't believe Olympus doesn't offer one :confused:

Do an eBay search for "lens hood xx mm" (where xx is the filter diameter). I did this for my 20mm and found one designed for a leica - cost about $10.

I decided I couldn't have filters, hoods etc for all my different lenses so I bought a 40.5-49mm stepping ring for the 14-42 kitlens and a 37-49mm for the 17mm pancake and use my OM filters and hoods (the 28mm metal OM hood is fine on the pancake). I also got a 39-49 ring for my Voigtlander lenses (25, 35, 50 and 90mm).

Heavystar on Ebay is your man. You can get a screw-in hood with cap that fits over it. I bought one for a 'normal' focal length and it works great - no vignetting.
