    Hey all,

    Im wondering if there is a metal lens hood that screw's into the 37mm thread of the Olympus 45mm lens but has a 46mm thread on the front of the lens hood that then 46mm filters could screw into?

    I found these so far but I dont know if any of them have a 46mm front that has threads for filters to then screw into (also, do those silver one's have black coloured one's anywhere?):





    Input appreciated from anyone that may own any of those above lens hoods or has suggestions on other hoods. Really wish Oly had made this lens with a 46mm front (quality filters are not cheap ya, know!)....

    Sorry i never checked your links but one solution would be to use a step up ring from 37-46 and also get a 3 in 1 collapsible rubber hood that screws into the 46mm thread which also has an internal 46mm thread for filters and lens caps, I have several and the versatility of the 3 positions (wide angle, standard & telephoto) for use on several lenses with different FL is great and they are cheap plus the silicone rubber protects the lens better IMO.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Its not a bad idea actually! :2thumbs:

    Still would love to know if any of the lens hoods I posted above have threads on the front for a 46mm filter if anyone knows....

    I've got the EZ-Foto, and can confirm that it has 46mm threads on the front. The hood is all metal and of relatively good quality.

    Thats awesome! Do you know if it comes in black anywhere?

    Also, is it just me or the rainbow imaging and ezfoto lens hood are the exact same lens hood just re-branded.... ?
