Alternative lens hood for 50mm f2.0

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found a high quality replacement lens hood for the new 50mm f2.0 lens? It's a great lens but as usual the lens hood is rather cheap plastic. I've got the expensive Fuji metal hood for the 50 and 23mm f2.0 lenses but it won't fit the 50mm. Any ideas?

Thanks Mike. I also looked and couldn't find one either. Perhaps Fuji wants to take my money for a metal one like they did for the 23 and 35mm. It's a better hood than the JJC versions because it uses the bayonet fitting on the outside of the lens (the JJC ones are screw-in, I think). The 50mm also has bayonet lugs so Fuji could make one if they wanted.

Mr T, I have a JJC square metal lens hood for the 23mm 1.4 and it does bayonet on, the feel and quality are very similar to the Fuji offering but half the price, it also fits the 56mm 1.2 as well!

Thanks Mike and milandro, but the 50mm f2.0 has a ø46mm. Otherwise the ø43mm hood for the 35mm would fit. I should have made that clearer. The 23mm f1.4 is ø62mm (like the 56mm f1.2).

you can easily use a step up ring from 43 to 46 ø

 

But there are 46mm lens hoods too (it’s all there and costs peanuts!) lots of them (many more than I am quoting here).

Thanks, they look perfect and a lot cheaper than Fuji!
