Lens hood similar to Sony's PD170/VX2100

Does anyone make a lens hood with a built in lens cap (like the one that comes on the Sony Cameras) to fit the GL2?

Would the Sony Hood fit on the GL2?

If not would there be a better solution that would eliminate a clip on lens cap. That thing drives me absolutely nuts!

Thanks

Oh! The Horror! The Horror!

AH yes! This will be the, "while-gripping-the-tiny-tabs-and-reaching-inside-and-squashing-the-little-tabs-so-that-you-can-then-release-once-you-located-the-threads-and-if-not-it-drops-out-and-then-you-get-to-start-all-over-and-repeat-the-game" Thang! - Now why on Earth would you want a solution for this? You'd miss out on all that fun and frustration? - HAH! Sony people just don't know they are born! All they get to do is clip it on the outside edge of the cover - and it's done!?! Now what kind of fun is that - eh?

No, I don't know of one .. but when you "track" one down, please tell me!

Grazie

It gets better than that Grazie - all we have to do is push a little lever and two little blinds (the lens cover) open up and reveal the superb Carl Zeiss lens.
Lens caps? - a thing of the past...
