Third party hood for da 21?

I am wondering if anyone has tried using the da 21 ltd with a third party hood, and if so what they can share about the experience?

Thanks,

Y

I really like the compact design of the OEM hood, so would not try a third party one on this lens.
I don't think you will find anyone using anything else.
What is it you don't like about the OEM one?

I use a 49-37mm stepdown adapter ring, followed by a 37mm "empty" ring (a filter with the glass removed).

I really disliked the OEM hood so I bought a third party from eBay. It's very much like the old Takumar hoods and it was good to use

I didn't like the OEM as it was not possible to use filters and one couldn't use a snap on lens cap.

In point of fact, I don't yet own a da 21. I was asking about third party hoods, because I like using a circular polarizer with a hood screwed in the other side (I did this with the 43 recently and it worked nicely). Other than that, I think that I like the OEM hood, especially the way it protects the lens.

Thanks,

Y

Makes sense - I don't use filters yet much, probably need to check into that.

It's not the cheapest way to go but an Olympus 28mm hood will fit. You can leave it on and put a 58mm (I think) lens cap on it.



Second from the left.

Since I don't polarize, the OEM is good. Set-n-forget.
