    Panasonic doesn't supply a hood for this lens as far as I know. I like to use hoods on all of my lenses For IQ and as a level of bump protection. Do any of you guys and gals know of a good quality third party hood available? Thanks to all who take the time to respond!

  3. With a 37mm screw mount rather than outer bayonet, it will be difficult to make one that actually reduces stray light, etc and doesn't vignette at 12mm. I just use a 37-52mm step up ring, it means I can mount a nice 52mm polariser without vignetting too.

    +1 for the JJC metal hoods - an excellent product. I have 3 or 4
    which I have yet to break (or bend, for that matter).
