The current clip in cron hood is a 42mm push on clip in ring hood. This is rectangular and works perfectly at f5.6 or smaller.
The lux does not have the keys to stop it rotating and the lugs on the aperature ring may just touch, the nubs on the hood. An elastic band will stop the hood rotating.
The rectangular hood turns the lux in to a nice lens as opposed to a flare queen...
