Yep, which is why Olympus not developing a hood specifically for the 12-50 is so silly. Instead, they call the hood for the 9-18 M. Zuiko THE hood for the 12-50. The hood is designed for a 9mm superwide, making it often of no use in backlight and even light coming from the side with the 12-50 at any focal length.
