    Just wondering why the (expensive) optional lens hood for this lens has holes in it!

    Is it to stop the wind catching it? ;) ;) ;)

    Hello Paul
    It is less in your way if you use an optical viewfinder.

    Greetings,

    Nah, it's for ventilation in case your lenses overheat. Which they are prone to. Fuji Fakt.

    I have them actually on all my 56 and 90 simply because the standard lens hoods are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long for my liking.

    If you are purchasing look for JJC copies, lot less expensive and virtually the same

    the little hood that comes with the lens works well and looks good too...keeps the profile small as well.

    Yes - I've actually ordered one - partly because I don't want to lose the original cheap one! ;) Done the same with lens caps for the same reason!

    Buy the 23mm f2 and use that one on both the 23mm and 35mm. It fits on the bayonet fittings of each lens.

    It helps to reduce the amount of dust collecting inside. It looks better, too.

    Its a production thing, by incorporating holes every tenth shade the material cost is nil.

    +1 on the JJC versions of the metal lens hoods. I have them on my 16 f/1.4, 23 f/1.4, 35 f/2 and 56 f/1.2 (the hood designed for the 23 works perfectly on the 56).

    I would have thought if it was designed for the 23 it would be less effective on the 56 than one designed for that lens?

    The metal hood works really well on the 56- Check out these videos (not mine)-

    They then use the space from the holes to provide the space between the glass lenses within the lens itself. A win win situation.

    Any spare space is sold to bubble wrap manufacturers.

    People buy Fuji cameras to save weight. It is a weight saving feature.

    At least people who shoot Fuji have a sense of humour...

    Where and what did you purchase for your 90mm? I'm looking for "cooler" lens hood myself.
