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.
