I'd like to know that too,

Nice shot akul!

About hoods. Theres a cheapo step-up ring 55-86 replacing the ridiculously expensive contax variants for 6.99 here

Then it's a two-stage thing if you havent noticed. You'll need the front part as well and they turn up at almost reasonable price every now and then (when step-up part is missing). Good thing is that just about any lens ends up with 86mm so you can use both the hood-thingy and step-ups for several lenses. I have originals except for the 67-86 step-up wich I bought from the same source as above.

Then theres the much cheaper rubber hoods as well, there should be plenty of options besides the contax versions found on ebay. But I like metal :-)

Heavystar on eBay has a series of nice metal hoods for various lens sizes, but you will have to figure out which one to get by asking others or trial and error. I have two of them, and they are very nice (but of course not original).

Luka, I like your angle of view in that photo. There is a thread going on about the 50 Planar so I got inspired to take mine for a walk today, these are all from the construction site that is my next door neighbor currently. So as mentioned all with the ZE 50 Planar.

I'd also recommend the Heavystar metal hoods that Carsten mentioned. I use one for my P50/1.4. They come with a decent cap that fits on the front of the hood (52mm, so the original 55mm Contax cap won't fit).
I bought this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Metal-Standard-55mm-Screw-in-Lens-Hood-Cap-/360475091702
They're not perfect (the threads aren't that smooth, probably better to apply a small amount of grease), but I guess it's the best you can buy new.

Nothing is stopping you Ronny. New wows from here. I really hope you've found a good Göteborg-lab that has enabled you to cover a wall with these ever-so-tasteful flower images :-)

Carsten, now what? "Fujifilm S5 Pro" leaving that super-Nikon 800-something at home?

I picked up the S5 just to come to grips with its DR and colours. I am not particularly intending to keep it. I want to see what others see in this camera. Oh, I also have a Kodak SLR/n in a box somewhere... I have too much junk around I need to test and sell

Thanks for the suggestion for the lens hood everyone! I'll look into those metal hoods.

Here are two shots with the P50 and NEX5N from earlier this morning...
