    How do you use a wrist strap on the left lug, when all the controls are accessed with your right hand?

    Also, could you post an image from above looking down on the camera/lens/hood?

    I'm lefthanded, so I prefer it this way (and I also DO have a right hand which I use for the controls...)

    If you visit my blog, you will see more pictures of the lens and you can imagine how it looks with the new hood.

    Panasonic must have designed i it to be that long for a reason. Do you think the new hood is less effective?

    For those that also have the lens, the Sigma 60mm lens hood fits the PL25 as well.

    That just looks like the same one that came with mine. What was your solution?

    I wish it were shaped like the fuji 35mm hood.
    35mm.

    Why not just tell us in plain text rather than solicit page views for your blog?

    For those who want the plain text answer - He uses the lens hood from the Panasonic Leica DG Macro 45mm 2.8.

    Sorry, but there is no soliciting, since I don't have any benefit from page views on my blog... :confused:
    But why write everything again if one klick to my blog does the same job? I'm also in two other german user groups. If I had to write things like that - which I understand as well meant tips for others - several times over and over again, I couldn't do it at all due o lack of time. I hope this is understood now.

    Well I thought it was a nice tip.

    Do you have a link to where you bought it?

    I bought it from a german online vendor, so I doubt that it helps you much.
    But I've heard one could order for a low price it directly from Panasonic.

    I took inspiration from this thread and got crazy and sawed my pl25 hood today. It all went great and finally I can see myself actually using that bit of plastic again... :)

    Sent from my GT-I9300 using Mu-43 mobile app

    Wow... it wasn't my intention to encourage anybody to use a saw on their 25mm hood... :rolleyes:
    The one for the 45mm is only around $20.00 so no need to destroy the original one.

    Does anyone have a picture of this combo?

    I assume this is the hood
     
  18. I would have done the same thing ages ago but the only sources I could find for the PL45 hood weren't cheap.
