Ok so the Panasonic 14mm isn't too wide of a lens but Im wondering which lens hood from the two below would be the best design for the 14mm FL. I should think the wider one but not sure since 14mm isn't that wide either...

The first one might be too narrow for a wide angle, hard to tell from picture. With its small lens size, I would prefer the folding rubber type GFFPhotos has.

IMO, the lens is not that expensive to justify adding bulk to it for protection. Besides, it's incredibly flare resistant so I doubt the hood will do much good.

I bought some of those vented lens hoods off ebay.

I'll be completely frank, I only did so because I saw a photo someone posted here on the forums and I thought it looked cool. I've gotten more than a few comments specifically about the lens hood while walking around town shooting (solidifying my street cred) so I guess the $2.50 I spent has paid itself off :wink:
