M9 owners need not apply, this hood is strictly a 35mm FOV hood made for the Zeiss 28mm 2.8 Biogon. 3D printed with lots of space for UVIR filter and ever a ND filter if you are so inclined. notice the cutaway material to make for a easy finger grip on the hood and lens, Available to order now.

This is what it is all about, being able to see. the bayonet ring of the hood was removed as much as possible, the black round part is the acual lens, result is seeing less hood in the viewfinder.
Naturally the MAIN issue is the fact that a M8 is a crop-factor camera, and the Zeiss hood is almost completely useless for anything other than protecting the camera from banging into stuff. (actually the hood in this picture is not even the official 28mm zeiss hood, it is the hood for the 50mm 1.5 which happens to also fit on my 28mm, I started using that hood to get a closer hood, but its not much. Notice the printed hood is actually the image format, very tight, when used on a M9 the hood will vignett but on the M8 is is exactly what the doctor ordered to control flare when you use a 28mm for a 35mm FOV.
Basically this is the same design as my original printed hood for the Voigtlander 35mm 1.4 - using the same hood but with more room for the filter package and a larger bayanet mount to accomodate the UVIR on the M8.
The hoods are available today. They are $40 mailed in the USA, email me if you are interested in one of these.
