    I've bought a very simple rubber screw-in "multi lens hood" 58mm from Hoya. Works fine, but when folded, the Lens takes more space in the Bag than expected.

    I use the JJC hood, it's cheaper but very close in quality to the original with felt lining and everything.

    I have a JJC hood too, similar in appearance to the Oly but I found it marks quite easily.

    If you plan to use polarizer filter on lens then I would suggest to get screw-in hood, 58mm - just look it up on ebay.
    Otherwise, JJC is good value and can be stored reversed on lens.

    I second JJC to. Well built, practically identical to the 'real deal' and 1/3 of the price. I got mine with free shipping from HK to Canada too. I have a 58mm UV filter on the lens and the hood goes on or off without any problem. If you're using a polarizing filter chances are the hood will work as long as it's not larger than the external diameter of the lens.

    I have the lens in black and use a 58mm screw on hood which takes a 62mm lens cap. I leave this on permanently. Looks good and provides good solid protection for the front element. I attached the only photo I have of the setup. It is next to the 40-150mm as a comparison. The hood and Olympus lens cap were about $10 total when I picked them up on ebay.

    +1 - nice quality and solid. I have a similar one for my 17/1.8 as well.
