| p.1 #1 · Nikkor*ED 300 f/4.5 IF AI-s hood tightening/removal |
I have a Nikkor*ED 300 f/4.5 IF AI-s with a really loose hood. I'd be okay with simply adding some black gaffer's tape along the barrel under the hood, but I can't really reach the area where the tape would do any good without removing it. Is there a quick and dirty trick to shoring up the hood? It doesn't have to be pretty.
Alternatively, there is a set of small screws on the barrel of the lens, that fall under the base of the hood when fully retracted. If these are loosened, does that allow the hood and sleeve to be removed? I've seen exploded diagrams of this lens, but I'm still not sure if that's the trick.
It would seem that if I could get that sleeve to come off, I could then slide the loose hood off the back, add the tape, and re-install it.
Thanks in advance!
