Lens hood for Olympus 17mm f1.8, 45mm f1.8, and a wrist strap.
Here’s the 45 with lens hood. You know how there’s those cheap companies on Amazon that make some good stuff and some total crap? Well, this is total crap. I’ve bought a few other items from JJC before and haven’t had any issues, but this one sucks. You can barely feel the bump when it clicks into place, so most likely won’t be able to tell when it starts wobbling loose and falls off. I’m not really surprised, because the reviews say so as well, but some of the reviews were also very good, so I was hoping that I would get a good one, and I did not.
This is one of their products that is actually decent. It goes on and stays on just fine. It’s telescoping, so it’s even easier to store. The only complaint I have is it’s kind of hard to slide out, but that may just need some time to break in.
I also got the Thinktank Retrospective 7 because my 5 is pretty cramped when I’m carrying everything. There is also a comparison pic below. I don’t think I’ll keep it though. It’s probably a bit too much space for my gear, and I’m debating whether it’s really necessary or if I’d rather just have the money back. May do a more in-depth comparison later.
And this is my EM5 MK II with the new strap and 17mm lens hood on. I’m not a fan of the strap either to be honest. I have the previous generation without the leather or the silver metal thing, and it’s much less stiff because it’s just cloth. The hood feels nice, but I’m not really sure about it either. Fit and finish is awesome for a $7 hood, but now that it’s on here I’m not sure if I like the added size. One of the awesome things about Micro 4/3 is the tiny size. This, although still small, takes up significantly more volume inside my bag.
Over all not a good haul
I hate returning things that aren’t defective, but I’m not really satisfied with my purchases either.
