Use this lights kit for improved image taking in bright conditions. The lens hood prevents lens flare and glare from incidental bright light sources. The lens hood is simple and quick to attach to the lens by using the screw thread on the front. Also included in the kit is a 39mm filter Protection Filter. Featuring an advanced Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating) to control ghosting and flares, the protector filter has minimal reflection (maximum of 0.3%) so image quality is not affected. The thin-frame design prevents vignetting when using 2 filters together. The kit is supplied with a soft bag for storage when not in use.

The actual lens filter is non standard being around 40.3mm that means some 40mm filters will fit and some will not though a few makers have made some specifically for these models.
I can't fault the quality of the package the metal is well machined with a smooth satin black paint finish which seems to resist marking very well. This adapter allows you to use 52mm filters much more common and if you skip the hood you can also use stepping rings which will let you use larger filters and avoid having to re-buy another size.
The filter adapter simply screws into the front of the lens, you then screw the hood onto the adapter on the outer threads allowing you to use the hood and filter at the same time. There are a few downsides to the design though, firstly there are 3 slots in the filter adapter I assume because is partially blocks the optical finder these slots help a little in not entirely obscuring your view this doesn't apply to the X30 as it has an EVF and doesn't use an optical finder. The problem is though once you have a filter attached it can let dirt/dust/debris onto the rear of the filter which can be annoying esp if you are in a windy place or outside I've had to clean a CPL a few times and you have to unscrew it or the adapter to do that.
Not really the best thought out design if I'm honest. What would work much better is a standard filter size on the lens barrel but it's a little late for that now. Still at least it does allow you to use filters via the adapter, and the hood does a pretty good job of taming flare and stray light. You might find though that the extra size of the adapter/hood means it might not fit your case very well.Read more ›
(1) the screw thread doesn't quite fit properly and (2) the knurled edge of the filter ring was so close to the edge of the hood that it's almost impossible to turn the filter when taking shots. I can't speak for other filter makes. (3) The clear filter supplied screws into the lens and against the hood. In use it gets too tight to remove if you want to clean both sides - a rubber glove job.
If you turn the filter too hard to try to stop it falling out you could damage the thread. Another rubber glove job to try to extract it. Now it's stuck completely and I'm going to have to try a non-Fuji alternative. All very frustrating as I'd have expected Fuji to provide a thread fitting standard filter makes exactly. Too late to return it but I'm encouraged that other manufacturers are now aware of the problem and are making a filter adaptor which fits a separate hood - simple.
I might not sound like a Fuji enthusiast but I am in fact totally delighted in every respect with the quaility of the Fuji kit I've got, which amounts to an XT-1 with a lot of lenses. It's a real shame that they didn't get a simple thing like this right. Screw threads apart, surely the notion of having to screw a polarizing filter inside any hood is impractical if it's inherently difficult to turn the filter in use?
Two points to note - with just the filter fitted the original lens cap fits as does the Fuji Leather case . With the Lens Hood fitted the supplied Lens Hood works fine but the Fuji Leather Case will not close over the Hood .

The threads all fit perfectly. I took off one star because the lens cap is more awkward to fit in and take out than the cheapo one I bought while waiting for delivery of the Fuji one.
Overall, though, I think it a necessary addition to the X20.
First, the protect filter is a genuine Fujifilm EBC filter and thus there is likely to be no reduction in image quality (I use these filters on my Fuji X Systems lenses satisfactorily). Second, the filter attaches to the lens thread directly (forming a seal between the lens element and the filter) and then the hood onto the filter. In most after market versions the adaptor, which has holes cut into it (a hanger over from the X10/X20 optical view finder), attaches to the lens and then the hood to the filter. The disadvantage is that dust can enter the holes between the lens element and the filter. While the lens is protected, it means that one will have to take the filter off to clean the lens in dusty conditions. Third, the hood is shaped with a more pronounced forward angle than the rather square cut of the after market ones. This means that is easier to turn the X30 on and off.
All in all, at circa £10-£15 more than after market filter kits the advantages of the genuine Fuji kit are worth it.

Works well, fits well. Lens hood is small but there is always a compromise between size and performance and a lens hood can never be perfect at all focal lengths on a zoom lens.Published 21 months ago by Mr. Rupert S. Brun
As this was part of the package with the camera it was great and if the price is correct it is worth having as part of the package with the cameraPublished on 12 May 2015 by Sally from Devon
It is expensive but better that the copies. I found I was gettting flare from the cheaper alternatives. I don't get this with the branded version.Published on 10 April 2015 by paparossco
Lens cap should be 58 mm not 52. There is no way to grip this cap when opening. NONSENSE. Lens hood is nice with Fujifilm on it. Mine one is black, but black paint is GLOSSY!!! Read morePublished on 25 Mar. 2015 by Gawrobryk
