5.0 out of 5 stars Fuji x100 lens hood and adapter
One can guess why this accessory doesn't come as standard but it's an absolute must if the undoubted quality of the camera's fixed lens is to be maximised; a couple of wonderfully engineered pieces of metal and totally indispensible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fuji Vs Copy
Three stars because the Fuji is no better engineered but is much more expensive.

For reasons I won't go into, we own both the real Fuji hood and the one by JJC.
The example from JJC is almost identical.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fuji Vs Copy, 17 Jan 2012
This review is from: Fujifilm Lens Hood and Adapter Ring for FinePix X100 (Electronics)

The example from JJC is almost identical.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005BRQHWM

As stated by another reviewer, the colour being the only difference between the two (this difference in colour being visible only when they are both in hand together and not really noticable when on the camera).
They are both made of aluminium alloy (not plastic) and they both fit the camera perfectly.
On the Fuji example, one of the three mounting 'fins' is in the 'top of lens' position when screwed fully home. The copy matches the Fuji's position exactly.
The X100 camera functions perfectly with both.
At the time of writing, the price for the copy adapter/hood is about one quarter of the Fuji one.
I would buy the copy first. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with it, I would then buy the Fuji one and use the JJC for the 'rough stuff' where the hood may be knocked and damaged.
The JJC example is not a cheap lens hood, but the Fuji one is far more expensive and functions no better whilst in service on the camera.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm Lens Hood and Adapter Ring for FinePix X100 (Electronics)
I have this in the camera at all times. It was very expensive, I guess everyone says the JJC is just as good, and I could have saved the bit, but I'm satisfied with this...

5.0 out of 5 stars First class from Fuji, 28 Oct 2013

This review is from: Fujifilm Lens Hood and Adapter Ring for FinePix X100 (Electronics)
Can't compare to cheaper models, but it's the perfect accompaniment to the X100 or X100s. Obviously reduces chances of glare, but also importantly really finishes off the X100 camera in terms of it's feel and look.

Packaging and build quality are first rate, no complaints.

3.0 out of 5 stars another costly accessory for your Fuji X100, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm Lens Hood and Adapter Ring for FinePix X100 (Electronics)
I never used this lens hood on my Fuji X100 very often, but you might need that adapter ring to put a clear filter to protect your lens. Also, if you put this lens hood it don't fit in the Fuji X100 case, but with the filter it will. Fuji should have supplied the adapter ring with the camera kit.

The quality and colour match the camera perfectly, as you would expect. However, as many others have already said, you pay a premium for this. Still, when I'd paid so much for the camera, I didn't want to "spoil the ship for a 'hapeth of tar" Anyway, the dosh is spent now and the camera looks "Ace". Move on.

5.0 out of 5 stars The right decision made...., 16 Feb 2014

This review is from: Fujifilm Lens Hood and Adapter Ring for FinePix X100 (Electronics)
Considered the cheaper option but then thought why buy cheap when I'd spent a lot on the camera.. very pleased with both items and the quality is obvious, colour match is spot on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fuji v JJC lens hood, 24 Jan 2014
This review is from: Fujifilm Lens Hood and Adapter Ring for FinePix X100 (Electronics)
I bought the JJC version first, it was a loose fit, I sent it back and got a prompt refund, I bought the Fuji version, no problem now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for X100 owners., 23 Feb 2012
If you own a X100 camera, this is an essential kit. Well built and with the same texture as the camera, the hood protects from flare, and the ring also allows you to use a 49mm filter.
