First Olympus 75mm User Reviews are also up at Amazon US (Click here to read them).
Damian MCGilliCuddy had the chance to test the Olympus 75mm lens and writes: “very well made, compact and light and stunning IQ – its even a good price all things considered…. any downside, on consideration yes! Olympus a lens of this quality really should come with its matched lens hood at the point of the purchase… seriously“.
Damian is very “close” to Olympus and they may listen to him. The original hood costs $80 at Adorama or 80 Euro at Amazon Germany. On eBay (via Hong Kong) you can buy a third party standard hood for $15 (Click here) and a tele hood for $16 (Click here).
