Fujinon 50 mm f2 silver with black hood

Recommended Posts

Hi. I just bought 50 mm, f2 lens in silver for my silver XT3.

When I opened the box I saw that the hood was black. The protective filter is black too. That was very disappointing. Because now the lens looks very ugly. If I knew I would have bought a black lens.

I have also an X100V silver and its hood and protective filter is silver. This is how it should be. How can Fujifilm make such huge design mistake?

Do you know if there are silver hoods for this lens?

I found this https://fujiaddict.com/2020/01/17/new-affordable-zonlai-square-hoods/ but it's not available for sale anywhere.

Thanks for any suggestions.

AFshoot.com has a silver one for the XF50/f2. It's a 'vented metal lens hood' so more similar to the metal lens hood for the XF35/f2 and the XF23/f2 rather than the original plastic one. Also it is a screw-on model with a filter thread instead of a bayonet. Nevertheless it fits well and the price is great (just EUR 11.50 or so).
