    Lens hoods for Voigtlander lenses

    I find the 15mm and 25mm CV lenses are very prone to flare on my G1 and the tiny lenshoods supplied don't help much.The lenses don't have a standard filter thread and the purpose made hoods for 35mm probably don't provide enough shielding on MFT

    Anyone come up a solution?

    You can might be able to make something using one of the Series filter adapters. Some of these have malleable flanges designed to allow them to slip over and grip the lens bezel.

    39mm filters kinda fit both of those lenses. Within the 15's tiny hood you can clamp a filter if you make it a little bigger with adhesive tape. Add an empty filter ring and you have a hood.
    The 25mm is threaded for 39mm filters. So if you add a size 39mm screw-in hood for a 50mm lens it should work out.
