    No I haven't got it - but the maker JJC makes one for the Olympus 45mm that seems to be OK from reports on another thread. I guess it comes down to how much you want an original and how much you're prepared to pay for it... :smile:

    I did a quick search and found a thread on another forum that shows the Panasonic original part number is VYC0981 and you can check the price here Parts Ordering It's listed at $44.33 there. In the UK, where I am, it's £45.99! Wow... For a little bit of plastic.

    Replacement Lens Hood

    I lost my original lens hood for the 14-45 and got this solid metal B+W 52mm screw on hood and just love it. I have a Lumix MC protector filter on the lens, then the hood, and don't use a lens cap any more. The hood is always on the lens, you don't have to mess with reversing it, and the camera is always ready. I do use a camera bag. The hood is for any 28mm wide angle lens (35mm equiv), so is perfect for the 14mm m4/3 lens. It also looks pretty cool.

    Hi Pjohngren

    I may go that route as well. I found a rubber one in a drawer that fits but hate it...

    I don't like lens caps and rarely use them unless the camera is in a bag with other stuff. Shooting on the street will do that to you. That and grabbing quick pics of my dogs!

    Cheers

    Agree re: the rubber hood for this lens. I bought one of those first and it flopped all over the place and wouldn't hold its shape. This B+W metal hood, however, is made in Germany, really classy, and protects the lens better than a lens cap, which I usually have trouble getting on and off.
