The Olympus LH-61C is a bayonet-mount petal-shaped lens hood that is suitable for use with the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 as well as the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14–150mm f/4.0–5.6 lens. The LH61C is specifically designed for these lenses, and prevents stray light from entering the front of the lens, especially when there is strong back lighting or peripheral light sources that can cause flare and reduce clarity. Lens hoods are also good for providing protection for the front element of the lens from bumps and scratches.
Compatible with the following Olympus DSLR and PEN Micro Four Thirds lenses:
