    I just bought an original Oly 14-42mm to play around with on a GF2, primarily because it is the smallest (shortest) of the kit zooms. I ordered an LH-61C hood for it from B&H, but the B&H listing is wrong -- the hood does not fit. It is a bayonet type hood that is also said to fit the M.Zuiko 14-150mm. My guess is that it fits the regular 4/3 Zuiko 14-42, not the M.Zuiko.

    Anyway, there seems to be quite a variety of screw-in 40.5 mm hoods available on eBay and Amazon. Is anyone successfully using any of these? In other words, verified not to vignette?

    Ideally I would like one that would reverse and screw in as well.
