5.0 out of 5 stars I am well pleased with this lens hood which is most effective at ..., 23 July 2014

This review is from: Maxsimafoto - Lens Hood LH-40 for Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 II Lens - (Black) Pen E-PM1, E-PL3, (micro four thirds type). (Electronics)
Mounted permanently on my 14-42 mm Series II lens. Can be fitted reversed onto the lens for storage / not in use. This is a first class accessory at a fraction of the cost of the Olympus version.

I am well pleased with this lens hood which is most effective at the wide angle end of the lens.

When using the mini flashgun - which comes with the E-LP5 - some shading occurs at the 14mm lens setting. This disappears when the lens is set to 22mm or greater. Just remove the hood temporarily if this is a problem - probably not needed if using flash indoors.

This caused by the low height of the mini flashgun and is not a fault of the lens hood.

Other flashguns, such as the 'Metz 24-1 Oly', have a higher flash head and can see over the lens hood and therefor do not give this problem at any setting of the lens' zoom setting.

Note that this lens hood will not fit onto the original 14-42mm Series I lens, which requires a screw or push fit lens hood.
