I tried a rectangular 77mm metal hood from Haoge. It does not cause corner vignetting, but it causes highlight bokeh balls to be cut from top and bottom. That looks.. distracting. I don't have large enough bags to haul the lens with the stock hood. I have to remove it when the lens is not on the camera, and the stock hood takes space of another lens I could bring with me.

Can you recommend any other hood for the lens? Thanks!

I never use the hood with this lens. I usually wear a ball cap, so if the lens I ever catches a glare, I just pull the hat off and block the he sun with it. Have you run into situations where you really need the hood?

For me, I need a hood every time I use a lens just to protect the front element. If it keeps out flare and increases contrast, that's just a bonus.

I use a small (2cm) 77mm screw-in metal hood. Not sure how effective it is, but it keeps the lens still relatively compact.
For front element protection, I prefer UV/clear filters...

This lens isn't subtle with the size of the front glass anyway, but the hood is ludicrous. I guess it has to be as large as necessary to serve a function, but you'd really have to need it in order to want to keep it on. I suspect a lot of people just use a filter on the front to protect the glass.

The lens hood doesn't bother me, I use it all the time, with no filter.

Thanks, I guess I'll just buy one of those cheap 2cm chinese made aftermarket hoods. Nikkor AF-D 85mm f/1.4 hood fits, but it is also large. HN-28 from 80-200/2.8 AF fits, but not sure if it vignettes since it's for a 2.8 lens.

Edit: I have bought a small cheap generic aftermarked screw-in hood. It works and I don't need to think about the hood anymore.

Brought another girl home, and my wife didn't complain. Day two and she has settled in pretty well

Any links to the hood?

I just got this hood for my lens. Very sleek and does the job. I like these slim slotted aluminum hoods, since in case of bumping it hard the hood should absorb the impact better than solid metal hoods. And it can take the 77mm lens cap as well. Easy to use.

On my June trip to Zakynthos where I shot with the lens I didn't have any hood with me and really didn't miss it otherwise than to protect the barrel and front element. This lens seems to handle flares like a champ.

Something like this. I bought mine from amazon.de for a much greater price because I didn't want to wait for two months.

Are the dark corners more of a sample variation issue? Iíve seen some photos where it doesnít look present and others (non portrait) where itís obvious. Thatís the main thing keeping me from picking one up. Plus I have the 50mm f1.2 GM lens.

Could possibly be some people not having in camera corrections enabled.
