p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Canon 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS: Wiggly lens hood?


I've tried multiple times to get this lens hood to stay firmly attached…using their directions for "lining it up" and looking to see the little areas to line up and twist, etc. but the lens hood still has "wiggle room"…not at all like any other lens hoods that are securely in place. I'm afraid this one will just fall off with a good bump. Any others with this happening?

I have found no such issue with mine thus far!

I've contacted Canon about it…so just wanted to see if anyone else had any issue…thanks for the reply. This is definitely not right.

if anything I find the hood too TIGHT, especially at first I was afraid it might twist the inner barrel too much putting it on and off

anyway not even the remotest hint of wiggle on mine

OOPS…after reading Jon's response, I checked the "hood numbers" against them online and found I had mixed up the 70-200 with the 70-300…operator error…again.
