How to attach LH-J40 LH40 Lens Hood for Olympus M.zuiko 14-42mm lens

I'm having trouble attaching the JJC lens hood I just bought online. I see pics on the web of the lens hood on the lens I have, but mine won't click on and I don't want to force it too much. Anyone else have this problem?

SOURCE: problem with Olympus Zuiko 14-45

Hey montenegro1,
What it sounds like is that the problem is not your lens at all it is the contrast of the scene you’re taking a picture of. The contrast between white and black in outdoor scenes is generally too high for either film or digital sensors to capture accurately. The reason your images are almost all white is probably that the camera is overexposing your images. The camera is metering of the dark areas in the scene and trying to expose the image so they are what is called middle gray which is exactly halfway between absolute black and absolute white. To fix this I would purposely underexpose my images by either setting a faster shutter speed than suggested by the cameras meter or a smaller aperture. To do this you are going to have to be in full manual mode unless your camera has exposure compensation. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I spoke to our local J&A Camera shop who gave me a short tuition on the lens.
Most of this I was aware of.
Thank you to J&A and yourselves.

My camera is working again, but the problem is not completely solved. What I did was to put on the old lens, take out the battery then turn on the camera and finally put on the battery again. And now it works. But the problem with the new lens (Zuiko digital 40-150) continues.

They told you wrong. The 18-55mm lens takes 52mm filters, as is marked on the lens near the mount.

You can either trade your 55mm filters for 52mm filters, or else get a 52-55mm step-up ring, which will adapt a 55mm filter for a 52mm lens.

Filters go onto the front of the lens. Remove the lens hood if one is attached. You'll see a threaded rim around the lens. The correctly sized filter (or step-up ring) screws into that.

As an Olympus user myself, I would not advise even if you could find an adapter. Your 620 is a 4/3 series camera with is a different frame size than the old 35mm equipment which means you will not get ideal photo quality. Yea, new lens are expensive, but losing good shots to sub par equipment costs you more in the long run in frustration.

I have the 70-300mm and for some reason i cant get it to focus either on auto or manual. it was working ok on day then took it out in the snowy weather and it wouln't work. can anyone help?


Quick temperature changes may cause this. I have the same lens. May be you must clean the pins while attaching lens to the body. If this information will help you please give your vote. Good Luck.

Can this lens fit an olympus C 5060 ?


No, it will not. The C-5060 does not use interchangable lenses. I cannot tell from the picture that you have attached what cameras this will fit. It it was, in fact made by Olympus, it would appear to belong to their line of 35mm film cameras.

Attaching non-Olympus lenses


The E-500 body has a "bayonet" twist & click attachment for the lens. There is no way that a simple screw threaded lens can attach to the camera directly. The lens that you have are designed to screw into the front of the original Olympus lens. I have seen some of these adverts on auction sites and they are worded something like "The wide angle / Tele lenses are simply mounted in the front of the Olympus EVOLT E-500 / E-330 / E-300 standard ZUIKO Digital EZ 14-45mm lens, or any other lens with 58mm filter thread." Which maybe isn't clear enough. So the bottom line is that you need an Olympus lens to use the other lenses you have bought. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
