Default Lens Hoods For micro 4/3 Lenses

Yesterday my lens hoods came in from overseas. I was very pleased with them both - one ordered from one company on ebay for my 14-42 kit lens ($7.99 including free shipping to Canada) - and the other from a separate company on ebay for my 40-150 lens ($11.95 including free shipping to Canada).

I really like the look of the square hood design with the 14-42 product



As well, the 40-150 hood is nice and long for protecting the front elements from lens flare

I was a little surprised that hoods weren't included when I purcahsed the lenses. But that seems to be Olympus' way. Canadian prices are $37.95 and $59.95 plus taxes adn shipping - - - so I am quite pleased with my just under $20 delivered right to my door.

I just ordered a lens hood off ebay for my 17-85 earlier this week. $10.- instead of 65.00 makes Maggie a happy girl! Did it take a long time to arrive after buying?
