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.

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

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.
