    Morning...

    I like to have lens hoods on my lenses and and just ordered a starter set of lenses for my pending XT1...the 18-55 kit and the 55-200, I'm hoping this will be a good travel kit, I'll order primes, etc. for serious work later once I'm comfortable with the camera.

    Here is my question, are there lens hoods available for these? I can't seem to find any.

    Thanks in advance.

    That's because if you buy new, they are included. Pre-owned, make sure they are too!

    Thanks Bill. Don't I feel dumb. Guess I'm used to Canon charging me for every little thing. :)

    No such thing as a dumb question ;) You do get a lot for your money from the Fuji chaps.

    One thing to consider; the screw on slotted lens hoods. I like them much better than the Fuji provided hoods.
    Smaller less obvious, still some protection. The 55-200 Fuji hood is a big long tube, the 18-55 Fuji hood is a flower petal type that's almost as long as the lens.

    The slotted hoods I found on Amazon permit using the same lens cap.
