4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, poorly described tho, 19 May 2013

This review is from: Metal Filter Adapter Ring + Lens Hood for Fujifilm Fuji X10 replace LH-X10 (Electronics)
Like Martin L, I assumed I'd been ripped off with this, as the original Fuji product comes in two parts, and this one doesn't. Well, the one I received does, it just takes some effort to separate to two sections, and there was no instruction to show this.

I presumed that 52mm filters would fit straight onto the front of this hood, and was puzzled to see that they didn't come close. After messing around some more, I realised that I could separate the hood from the filter adaptor, and thankfully am now able to use an old Kenko Pro-1 polariser and don't now have to chance an off-brand 40mm CPL.

I'd bought this mainly for the adaptor part, not the hood, so was relieved that it worked as hoped. I can add the hood part back on if needed, but then can't alter the CPL, so this is worth bearing in mind if you wish to use a CPL.

The hood looks a little like there's an additional internal thread, and I've seen people mention they use 58mm filters with this hood, but don't own any 58mm to confirm.

Hope this clears things up, this would have been a 5 star product if the seller provided instructions on how to separate the two sections!
