    Is there any advantage of square vs round, or doesn't that matter?

    As long as the hood is wide enough to not cause vignetting, it really doesn't matter, but in theory the rectangular one could be a little smaller.

    I have the square silver JJC one - it's not bad, the only issue is that with the 14-42iir, at <~20mm or so it shades the bundled flash on my PEN E-PM2. It's maybe more an issue for the flash having low clearance rather than the hood being tall though.

    There was another thread recently on their hoods here.
