Olympus sell 'shading rings' for their lenses, which as correctly pointed out, stops the light from come from behind the lens.

 

A cheap option is to buy step up filter rings from say 67mm to 72mm or similar to reduce the space between the front of the lens and the port :)

I once used rings cut from soft black plastic, pushed onto the barrel of my lenses. Most alloy housings seem to have avoided this problem, except with fisheye lenses behind large domes.

I just cut the bottom out of a bleach bottle, cut in to size, and painted it black. Works great when I slip it over my fish-eye.

Yes, take off the filter.

 

I, too, had similar issues. I went the Sharpie route (didn't work), and now have a piece of an old wetsuit as an "extension" to my hood. Problem solved.
