I just bought one of these lenses used and it didn't come with a hood and they seem to be few and far between on Ebay. B&H and Adorama don't have any (or anything that would fit) so I figured I'd try for the next best thing, hardware store DIY. I did find a guy on youtube that had made his own from a CD tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvBAYncRl_U and while I have the tools to do that I'd like to avoid a funky ring hanging on my lens.
So I'm looking for these dimensions of the hood:
- Inside Diameter
- inset distance of the lock screw
- wall thickness might be nice but I doubt everyone has a set of calipers lying around
any other ideas you might have
Thanks in advance
