Olympus E-P3 12mm f/2 45mm f/1.8 Lens Hoods

Finally tracked these down, in stock, at the Olympus UK store (which turned out to be in Belgium!!)
And yes they look gorgeous!

BUT
Lenses should come with hoods provided.
If they are going to be an "accessory" they should be available at the same time as the lens.
These are very expensive for what they are.

Olympus are not alone in pulling these "accessory scams" but that doesn't make them any less guilty. Whoops - did I say guilty? Didn't mean it honestly. (Olympus being of course honest as the day is long)

Now of course if they were tupperware.........
