    After having tried/used several different types, my choice is a 46 to 37mm step down adapter (and the Olympus 37mm lens cap made for the Oly-D 17/2.8).

    Low profile and efficient.

    A step down adaptor will provide some protection for the lens, which I am looking for, but not much shading. Any other options that will provide both? I'm amazed that panasonic doesn't offer a hood/shade.

    I got this recently, and I like it. Looks like a Leica hood, and does the job nicely for cheap:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/46mm-Lens-Hood-f...item3358e5ed51

    Fits the lens threads perfectly without having to use adapter rings. There are others on eBay if you search for "46mm hood".

    I use one like this, but it came with a matching lens cap. From HeavyStar on eBay.

    Like others, I use a 46mm screw-in metal hood from heavystar that takes a 52mm clip on cap. A perfect fit.

    Consider the hoods offered for GN-Nikkor 45/2.8, Nikkor AiP 45/2.8 and the Voigtlander 40/2.

    You are incorrect in saying that the step down ring does not provide much shading.

    The 46mm shade for the Contax G series works well, there are clones on ebay.

    A rubber lens shade that are collapsable. I buy one for each lens. Don't have to take them off when putting away and offers better bump protection.
