Vented Metal Lens Hood for Pancake Lenses
February 8, 2019
Finally I have found a simple but effective lens hood ideal for Pancake Lenses. I used it for my Panasonic Lumix 14mm F/2.5 Pancake Lens and Fujifilm XF 27mm F/2.8. This is the SIOTI Metal Vented Lens Hood. It comes with a lens cap and a cleaning cloth when you buy it.
It is available in a variety of thread sizes form 37mm all the way to 72mm. There are two kinds of SIOTI Metal Hood, the most common that you always see being sold which is the standard vented and the Filmy Vented which is shown on the photo above. For me the Filmy Vented greatly matches most pancake lenses, like the Lumix 14mm F/2.5 and Lumix 20mm F/1.7 and FUJI XF 27mm. It is thinner than the Standard Vented and a bit wider.
The SIOTI METAL LENS HOOD is available on Amazon for $8.99 and it comes in a box with a cleaning cloth and lens cover. Please click here to get it from Amazon
