I made myself a custom hood:
Wow, that looks outstanding. It's too bad it costs nearly $300 to do it.
I guess it's only about 5% of the overall cost of the lens, though.
In my opinion, it makes the lens a lot more practical. With the new hood you can mount it to a D4 and fit it in a Thinktank UD 35v2.
I guess if one have no intention of using a camera and lense, some crazy modificiation for tetrising them into a backpack is great.
It's weird if you ask me.
I've seen much less practicable gear-modifications.
Ryan - hats off to your skillfully done hood-mod! The UD 35 is a nice bag, but my fav for the 200/2 is still the GlassTaxi.
The 200/2 with hood in shooting position, a D7000/D700/D3s and a TC14/TC17 in the middle will fit nicely in.
A small detachable front-bag holds a small camera (X100) and a small lens like the 85/1.8 or 105/1.8.
