5.0 out of 5 stars A more sensible alternative to the Olympus product
Horrified at the price of the original product in relation to that of the lens, I was pleased to spot this. I have tried at at the wider end and there is no perceptible cut-off. Therefore it will be adequate at the longer end of its range.

It is well flocked internally and shares the same bayonet fitting as the lens it is aimed for and can be reversed over the...

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit tight but does the job
At a quarter of the official Olympus version, this has to be worth a go. Delivered fast and well packaged, and whilst it fits well, it is a very tight fit, which may loosen with age. Better than too loose though!

This review is from: JJC replacement Olympus LH-61D Lens Hood for Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f:4.0-5.6 (Four Thirds), M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 (Micro Four Thirds) (Electronics)
Horrified at the price of the original product in relation to that of the lens, I was pleased to spot this. I have tried at at the wider end and there is no perceptible cut-off. Therefore it will be adequate at the longer end of its range.

It is well flocked internally and shares the same bayonet fitting as the lens it is aimed for and can be reversed over the ens for storage.

A good choice and almost sensibly-priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good if not better than OEM, 23 Feb 2014

And a lot cheaper, cannot understand how Olympus can justify the price they charge for a piece of plastic. Fits reversible for carrying around and works perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but very OK after small adjustment, 10 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JJC replacement Olympus LH-61D Lens Hood for Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f:4.0-5.6 (Four Thirds), M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 (Micro Four Thirds) (Electronics)
I bought my second one and am happy with it. Both had a bad fit feeling. There were 2 small lumps of plastic that I had to shave smooth first. After that the lenshood slides on smooth and felt good.

If you want to know why lenshoods are so expensive, consider this: Although the plastic injection costs less than one USD, you need a mold to inject the plastic into. Those tools are enourmously expensive. You can cut cost by making a cheaper mold like used here, let's say a USD 5000 one. But then your products may suffer from occasional slight deformation and more often, bad fit due to pointy bits of plastic near the injection point. Cheaper molds also means that the injection points all too often appear in areas that are critical for a good working product. In this case right on the 2 bajonet ridges on the inside of the lenshood.

1.0 out of 5 stars JJC replacement for Olympus LH-61D lens hood, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JJC replacement Olympus LH-61D Lens Hood for Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f:4.0-5.6 (Four Thirds), M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 (Micro Four Thirds) (Electronics)
This lens hood will not fit onto a 40-150mm 4/3rds Zuiko digital Olympus E series lens without considerable modifications.

firstly, you cannot attach it to the lens until the lens hood hole has been made 2mm larger in diameter.
secondly, it has also to be shortened by at least 1mm to allow the rim to engage behind one of the lens bayonets as there are no slots in the hood to engage and lock with all the bayonets on the lens.

Finally, it can only realistically be made to push fit onto the lens.

I have since purchased a used Olympus LH-61B in "as new" condition for less money than this one which fits and locks on perfectly.
This one has been discarded to the dustbin.

I wish I had not wasted my time with this after market product.

The bayonet needed shaving in order to get it to fit properly but otherwise ok. Not made as well as the Olympus hood for the 45mm f1.8.

Seems to do the same job as the Olympus version at a reduced cost. It's only a bit of plastic after all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but can't put lens cap on with it fitted!, 26 May 2014

Not a perfect fit, so trick to get on the first time.
You cannot get the lens cap on of off with this fitted, but that is par for the course with hoods for telephoto lens.
