    So I ordered a LN- Pany 14mm from KEH and wonder from the various hoods I see on Amazon which is the best? With the kit zoom I tend to shoot at either 14 or 42 and my 40-150 is better at 40, so I thought it would be a good match. I think the 14mm 2.5 will give me the EP5 experience and performance I want.

    I recommend getting a step-down ring instead of a hood.
    I actually don't think this lens needs a hood as it is not prone to flare.
    However the step-down ring will make it a bit less likely to touch/scratch the front element.
    I then feel comfortable carrying it without a lens cap.
    A 46mm to 28mm ring seems best.
    I do the same with the P20 as well.

    No vignette with the step-down ring?
