Scratched the paint off my X100S!
on 4 November 2013
In reading the reviews for this lens hood, you've think it an angelic gift of engineering genius, a cheap-but-clever-equivalent to the Fuji version.
It only took a few weeks of light usage for it to rip the silver paint of my X100S.
Maybe I did something stupid? Maybe I myself am? I doubt it. I think you get what you pay for, and in this case, I paid for a cheap copy that caused a lot more monetary damage to the camera body than the price of the official lens hood. Now, would the lens hood from the manufacturer perhaps cause the same paint damage (major peeling around where the lens hood screws in to the body), and it's more a defect with the body/paint than the hood? Possibly.
Unfortunately, it's too late for me to test that theory.
