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.

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.

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!

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.

...and quite expensive for what it is. But that's the way of photography kit. What else are you going to do?

Oh dear! I've bought the 45mm 1.8 version of this product and like it, with a good fit. Don't know what happened to this particular model for the Olympus 40-150 f4 - 5.6 but it really was a very poor fit in comparison! The fact is I think this type of product can be a bit of a hit or miss affair. The Olympus original hoods are precision made and will guarantee to fit the lens correctly with a satisfying click when twisted home, not so with this product I'm afraid, at least not with the one I purchased. I've spent the extra money in this case and order the original Olympus hood instead and sent this one back for a refund.

Good quality product at a very advantageous price. I use it pretty well all the time on the Olympus MFT 40-150 lens. It adds some protection as well and when walking around prevents the lens getting dinged on objects so I find I am not taking the lens cap on and off all the time. It fits neatly onto the lens and you can still use a polariser or other filter if required. You just have to carefully insert a finger into the hood without touching the filter element to be able to turn a circular polariser. Can be fitted loosely over the lens reversed when not in use, but not securely, just when put back in the bag.

I bought this because it is much cheaper than the Olympus version but does a great job. No problems with fitting

Plastic construction means it is very light but perhaps not as robust as an all metal hood.

Easy to fit.

Feels well made.

Good value, especially when compatred to branded versions.

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.
