    I have had good luck with other products from RainbowImaging so I emailed and asked about ordering the hood that they sell on Amazon directly from them:

    "Amazon.com: Rainbowimaging Silver Metal Lens Hood for Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f/1.8 Lens, 100% replaces Olympus LH-61F: Camera & Photo" - $39.99

    This hood had not been on their Site before today. They added a page for it and sent me an email message back with the link.

    Olympus LH-61F Lens hood, Olympus, M.Zuiko ED 75mm F1.8 Lens - $26.99 and free USPS shipping from New York for orders over $15.00

    Rainbowimaging takes payment via PayPal or Google Checkout.

    I asked and they do not sell a cap for the hood like the one that Olympus sells for the Olympus hood for the 75mm f/1.8.

    When I inquired about a replacement lens hood for the Olympus LH-48B Lens Hood for the 17mm f/1.8 the response was to "please wait a while."

    FWIW, I'm selling one of the metal caps Olympus sells for the 75mm. It does not work with the Olympus hood attached or reversed. It's really a decorative piece for those without the hood. Assuming this hood has the same outside diameter as the genuine hood that is.

    Thanks for the heads-up!
    I ordered one Monday - thought I would give it a look.

    It's the JJC Lens Hood - Great Price - Fits well!

    I just got mine in the mail. It's the JJC Lens Hood that you can find on eBay for $30 and up. It was the best price I've seen for a reversible aftermarket copy of the Olympus lens hood. I have ordered other items from RainbowImaging and they have always been quick to ship and packaged well.

    I have bought several small items from RainbowImaging and they are great.
