Referring to my comment in NikLG's post (Filter for the X10), I have just received my generic hood from China.
It seems to be an exact replica of the Fuji hood, and is good quality with a matt black finish. It's packaged under the name JJC with model No. LH-JX10....a google search with that model No. brings up a load of results, with prices around £25 including postage.
(If you happen to have the X100 as well (!) a search with LH-JX100 brings up prices as low as £7.00!)

Amazon have some in stock so I placed an ordered
I know I'm not a Group member but I'm interested to hear how you X10 owners are getting on with it. Do you still love it? Any bugs?
Now the price is coming down I'm still wondering whether to or not.
I've not had the opportunity or excuse to use it for a few days but plan to give it a good hammering over Christmas Still love it - I've yet to come across any problems and still more than happy that I bought it
Great little camera! Amazon now have it for £425 and also cheap hood/filter ring.....see Paul's post above.
I`ve not used any camera in the past two/three weeks, hopefully I`ll have more time over Christmas and the new year.
While I was at it I ordered a soft release as well
Hood and filter adapter has not arrived yet, but I received the soft release in the post today
Ok its Leica branded but including postage from the US it was still cheaper than these.
I got the hood and adapter this morning. Fits fine. Seems solid enough Not stuck any filters on it yet though.
Still debating wether to get a soft release or not. Does help in anyway or just look cool ?

They say you can gain about a stop in low light hand held.
And makes the button easier to find when looking through the viewfinder.
Looking cool does not come in to it
Intersting. I may look into getting one in that case.
I quite fancy this lens-cap ebay link - but can't decide if I'd feel like a bit of a twit or not......
I doubt I'll buy it
That looks Ok Alison but what about filters.
I`m just itching to try an IR filter
Nik the soft release in my book is a worth while investment and there not exactly dear.
Got in from work after a long shift to find the hood and filter adapter has arrived, looking good
Ah I've plans to buy a proper IR converted camera soon so I don't need to worry about that. I might consider other filters though but don't plan to think about that tonight
I won't be buying the cap though - neat idea but unnecessary as long as I've got a pocket to put the original cap into!

Please don't buy that lens cover, people will stare at you Lol only messing!
I think that over a period of time that could actually start to mark the lens barrel, correct me if I am wrong please.
If I worried about people staring at me I'd not stand in the middle of town turning full circles using the panorama setting I pretty much don't care anymore
I gather it simply slots over the lens and is held on by grippy stuff so I doubt it would do any harm.
I've got other things to spend my money on though - my jeans pocket is a safe place for the current cap
