p.1 #1 · Nikon 300/4 AFS lens hood issue...Any ideas?


I have a Nikon 300/4 AFS and the built in lens hood is extremely stiff to pull out and push in. There is a black string/knot that has emerged from between the hood and the lens. Anyone have ideas or insights on how to fix this situation? I don't want to do anything to screw up the lens or the hood. Tucking it back in doesn't seem to resolve the issue. It just keeps reemerging. Thanks!

A pic would help to see what your talking about.

Sounds like some thread from your closes got in between the hood/lens or maybe the felt on the inside of the hood is coming off and rolling up?

No black string/knot on the 300/f4 I have.

You do twist it before pushing/pulling right?

I did find it annoying that the hood would slide out sometimes so I put a bit of gaffers tape.

No string here either. As you are looking through the view finder twist the hood to the left, extend it, then short (1/8 turn?) to the right to lock it in place.
