Filters are good, hood is not
on December 22, 2015
I like the filters, but I feel like they may get stuck on the lens at some point. It also feels like they may eventually strip the threads. The actual filters themselves are good for the money, but are not amazing.
I have wanted a tulip hood now for a while, but am rethinking it. Maybe it is just this one though. It screws onto the filters and rotates with the camera focus. Several times the hood has shown up in the shot at a dark halo/shadow around the edges in weird spots. This may be due to it rotating the long an short parts of the hood without being able to choose independently of focus. You also have to keep the same filter while using the hood, or you have to stop what you are doing and take a few minutes to take off the hood, change the filter and reattach the hood. I have stopped using the hood altogether and just use the filters now.
