Great Tulip Hood --- Works Perfectly!
on October 22, 2011
Was a little worried about the fit and ease of use after reading some of the reviews but am very pleased. I figured out that the notched ring on the base of hood screws up and down to release and anchor the hood to the lense. The key is to tighten the screw ring on the hood, carefully line up the hood and camera with the arrow up as directions state and with light even pressure screw on. This doesnt require but about 2 turns - then the trick is to unwind the ring down toward the lens to firmly anchor the hood to the lens!!! Voila! Anchored! My other concern were reports that the lens cover wouldnt work and mine did!!! So I attached the lens cap holder on the cap and it elastically attaches to the lens shaft!!! The only thing I found disappointing was that there were no real directions especially for difficulties but I guess I could have called on the seller for assistance. Wish I had been braver and bought 2 more of them for my other lenses! For the $6 pricetag its a great deal!
