On my two OM-2ns, I keep a 28/2 and an 85/2. Both have hoods and lens caps, but the caps don't work with the hoods, so I have to take off the lens caps and screw on the hoods in order to take pictures. This is less than good.

So off to B&H, and two Olympus lens caps found that fit on the hoods:

For the 85mm/f2 hood - a simple push fit success.

For the 28mm/f2 hood - this one took an Exacto knife to shave away some plastic but now fits nicely.

I had to wait a couple of weeks as these are not always in stock, but what's two weeks in the life of a camera that will last a few decades more?

Cool

Wasn't even planning on it, but I was at the pawnbrokers and I got a mint condition 28mm f2.8 for a steal.... Then I saw a cheap 100mm f2.8, and now I have an Om-4 en route to use them on with a 50mm f1.8.... might be time to retire the Nikon FE.

Been a member here for a while and am just discovering this thread, D'oh! My first camera was an OM-1n. After it was stolen, I added 2 OM-2's and a 4ti with a dozen lenses or so. My favorite OM moment was meeting a guy at Narita airport shooting an original M1. Anyway here's a picture.
