$80 off on the GF6. Hoocap for Panasonic 14-42mm.


The price of the GF6 with 14-42mm kit lens just dropped $80 at Amazon US (Click here). And the Panasonic G5 with the same kit lens sells for $349 at eBay US (Click here). And if you own the Panasonic 14-42mm lens you can now grab the smart Hoocap (Click here). it’s a lens cap and Hood in one!

    Its not the same kit lens with the two cameras. The GF6 comes with the new 14-42 ‘II’ (smaller, better optics, 46mm filter). The G5 comes with the old version (not-so-good, 52mm filter).

    That hoocap is clever! I’ve never seen one before!

    I may just have to buy the lens so I can use the Hoocap :)

    I am looking for a small cam and this might just fit the bill. However, I downloaded the instructions and found that it has no dials. No dials, like, first press the button, then do something. Where is this thing going? Or am I badly wrong?

    Nothing enlivens my soul more than a new Panasonic kit lens offer.

    haha the hoocap… look pretty useless… why not just buy a filter and use your lens without lens cap… wasn’t it faster?? =D

      All filters rob some light and add some ghosts/flares in certain conditions.

      • Admiral Ackbar

        Every lens element in a lens contributes to light loss and glare. Use a high quality filter with confidence, but also use a lens shade.

        • peevee

          Well then, Hoocap is cheaper and better for the shots than a high-quality (read, expensive) UV filter, and protects the lens better (and if I will buy $100 filter, I will worry about scratching the filter – then what?). What’s not to like? I want it for my lenses. Although sure Pana 14-42 is probably the most used m43 lens with all those supercheap G3/G5/GX1/GF3 etc sales, so it is understandable why they supported it first.

  • Just asian girls will buy that camera
