Looks good Joe, it is fully dressed.

It has that mini M Leica handsomeness to it.

I just got my too expensive official Fuji hood and adapter today. it fits tight, looks good, just one thing I didn't think of, it prevents use of lens cap. oh well - it does look cool and that's the whole point, right ?

i still have the official one on order...not sure which one i'll keep.
i never use a lens cap, much prefer the hood/filter combination...

good that it looks cool but i like it for the flare control and physical protection as well.

That reminds me of an Olympus 35 RD or Minolta Hi-matic 7sII.
It's "street-ready", Joe

Same here. I just secured it with a piece of tape.

I have the 'clone' and a less drastic fix is to gently squeeze the slits on the hood and this tightens up the fit such that you can still remove it.

A 49mm centre pinch lens cap fits perfectly inside the hood like this and is very cheap from ebay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/49mm-snap-...item3cbc48bbd8

Joe,
Sweet! Well done.

By the way, for others that may buy the non-OEM adapter and hood, I found that simply putting a tiny bit of gaffer's tape on one of the adapter lugs makes the hood fit perfectly snug... no looseness at all.

^ I have done the same method of tightening up the slop/fitment on a couple X100(s) owned by family/friends.

* Gently Squeeze tab/bar towards the end of the hood at each lug slit inwards towards the hood. Sloppy fit made perfect on these generic hood/adapter copies.

If you want to use a lens cap I have found that you can generally buy one (Tamaron are good for this) that will clip to the installed hood. I do this with some of my Leica lenses and it works well.

Yep, just bend the slits so that the hood fits tighter. Mine is perfect like this, and no glue or gaffer tape required.

I gorilla-glued my clone hood. It was $20, I didn't mind unscrewing the whole thing the few times I wanted to take the hood off.

Here's mine



The half case (comes with attachable top) is a chinese knockoff but looks nice and feels great. Only cost me $20

The soft release I found on an old SLR at a thrift shop. Feels/looks great on the Fuji.

Lens Hood is official

Now all I need is a Thumbs Up :P
