    Has anyone tried the TM49 Hoocap (49mm) on a Fuji X100, X100S, or X100T? I've looked all over the internet and can't find any mention of the two together. Don't feel like spending $50 just to test it out.

    Also curious if anyone has tried any of the following:

    TR62 Hoocap on Fuji XF 23mm 1.4?

    TR62 Hoocap on Fuji XF 56mm 1.2?

    TR67 Hoocap on Fuji XF 16mm 1.4?

    TR67 Hoocap on Rokinon 12mm 2.0 Fuji X Mount?

    TM43 Hoocap (or larger with adapter) on Fuji 23mm 2.0?

    You might have more luck in the X100 forum.

    Nope... way too bulky for my taste.

    I use a knockoff domed Pentax hood, made by JJC. Much tinier, much classier looking.

    Granted, it doesnt protect the camera from something coming at the lens from the exact front, but that shouldnt happen to your camera anyway, unless you throw it at a pile of nails or something... It offers way more protection than the wider diameter hood offered by fujifilm (or its replicas), due to the opening only being just wide enough. No vignetting, minimum size, plenty of protection, and great looks... i like :cool:
