Is anyone else having difficulty with their lens hood sticking on the Nikon 500mm PF. I’m find that often times it is very difficult to get it off the lens.
If you would like to post, you'll need to register. Note that if you have a BCG store account, you'll need a new, separate account here (we keep the two sites separate for security purposes).
More like, Glad the cheap plastic gets jammed together on there and won't come off....lolI love the hood on the 500PF. Hard to take off? Yes thank goodness. I've retraced my steps many times to find the hoods when they've fallen off of both the 200-500 and 80-400. Glad Nikon finally figured it out.
That‘s what I’ve found with mine. I don’t have too much trouble getting off, but it is difficult to get on. You have to make sure everything is lined just right , if not I can see how it can get jammed and won’t come off. I almost never take mine off because of the difficulty of getting it aligned just right when putting it on. Last time I put it on , I place a small of silicone grease on the threaded area. Hopefully that will help.Hoods can be a bit like filters, grab them too hard and they distort slightly making them difficult to turn.
