No.

The outermost lens is set far enough in that it really doesn't need one in my opinion.

Thank you Greg for the info.

I just order one for my soon to purchase epl1. And I am so uses to using lens hoods. That it would seem strange not needing one. But since it does not need it, that is couple of bucks saved. :)

Any suggestion on how to protect the lens a bit. Do not think it is sensible to put a 120 dollar clear BW multi coated filter to protect a 180 dollar lens.

just put a 52mm filter on there o.O

or just be careful and not worry bout it :P

I am concern about flares and ghosting, I have haze 1 tiffen filter in that size, but I use them as a warming filters. And I always remove them, but always have a hood for the added protection. It feels strange not to have a hood.

Hards,

I just feel naked not having a hood. It is bring me out of my comfort zone. But I think I will just put the haze 1 on for the flights and rides to the hotel. And take just be a bit more careful when planing the cap back on. Making sure it seats correctly. Thanks

then pick up a 52mm hood o.O

PB,

They do not make a oly market or after hood for this lens, and I not a fan of the rubber ones. I always had issues with keeping them in place.
