p.1 #1 · Alt hoods and their compatability - current 80-200 D ?


Does the hood for the 80-400 VR fit the current 2 touch 80-200? Seems like a deeper hood if so. Can anyone verify?

Also, does anyone have the hood adapter for the HB-29 made/sold by an ebay seller? If so, how does the adapter attach to the lens? And is the hood for the 80-200 AFS usable with it?

Thanks.

The hood from the 80-400 does not lock well, at least that is my experience. I could just be my particular lens/hood combo.

I have mine secured with a small piece of gaff tape so that it does not turn.

I think the 80-400 lens hood will fit
but will probably cause significant vignetting,
especially on FullFrame.
Keep looking for a used replacement as there are some out there.
I have not seen a 3rd party unit that I like better.
I especially dislike the rubber ones although they do work.

Roger,

Why would the 80-400 hood vignette more on the 80-200 than on the 80-400? Both are 80mm and have a 77mm front. Only the lens aperture differs.

Well, maybe if not FX, then on DX...can anyone else who has both tell me...does yours fit/lock properly without slop or forcing?

I was being premature and lazy when I said that, without current testing and only relying on memory.

I just now took the hood off my 80-400 and it fit the AF-S 80-200 fine.
It is actually slightly shorter but solid.
However, when looking through it with my D600 there is slight shadowing in the corners.
The scallops in the 80-200 hood are located such that there are none.

The Photographer who sold me his mint 80-200 lost his hood and replaced it with three.
I may have an extra one.
