Alternative Lens Hood – Fuji 23mm | Chris Dodkin

Given that the official Fuji hood for the 23mm is rather on the large (and conspicuous) side! I’ve been looking at replacing it with a more low-key lens hood – more in keeping with the retro styling of the camera. I’ve been testing a metal 62mm screw-fit hood today. This looks far more in keeping with the original design aesthetic, and simply screws in to the 62mm thread that the lens has available for filters/hoods etc. I’ve matched the hood depth to the hood depth of the shallowest section of the Fuji hood – so as to avoid any vignetting. Very happy with the results so far – no only does it look better (IMHO) but the IQ hasn’t suffered in tests to date, and there’s been zero vignetting……
