    Hey Folks,
    I'm seriously considering purchasing the XF 60mm lens for portrait work and am searching for an alternative hood for the lens even though the front element is very recessed on the 60mm. (The included hood is really big.) Amazon through Willoughby's offers a "kit" with the lens that includes, (at least in the photo), a hood similar to the one that comes with the XF 35mm, a hood I actually like. My suspicions are that the hood they include isn't the same as with the 35mm since there is a significant difference in filter sizes between these two lenses.
    So, anyone with any experiences and/or thoughts to share will, as always, be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hey, don't have any meaningful input here, but just curious as to why you wouldn't opt for the 56mm 1.2 for portraits?

    Valid question. I'd opt immediately for the 56/1.2 but its too much money right now for me. I like the results I'm seeing with the 60/2.4 here and on other forums and think it will do well for me.
