.......... I clone drives, this negates de/reactivation. When I upgrade computer or drive I just clone, no deactivating or re-registering, no lost paperwork, passwords or serial numbers. Works a charm.
......or would if the House of Representatives hadn't thrown a temper tantrum and closed the National Parks...which is a real pity...hopefully that situation will be resolved by late October/early November (best times for Zion).
Fixed that for you.
Regarding the lens hood, you can try using a little skin oil (rub your finger along your forehead) around the inside if the bayonet mount in the hood. Not kidding!
I have and had a few from all the usual suspects......... ThinkTank Retrospective series. This might be the most comfortable shoulder strap of any. ...... I carried this for almost a month in Central Asia in the heat and it worked really well for me.
I almost went that way, but I was concerned about user complaints in reviews regarding insufficient padding. In your experience how does it hold up to bumps and short drops? If I need a slightly bigger bag I may add an RS 20 in the future, because the strap on the LowePro is pertty chunky for my tastes, but still pretty comfortable.
Thank you for this "real life" observation. This is the kind of thing that most reviewers (like myself) wouldn't know unless something similar happened. We judge a lens by feel and the apparent quality of the moving parts, but don't necessarily know the internal construction or how it would react to a bit of "violence".
The fact that you replaced it with a second copy also says something significant!
