IMO it compromises the compactness of the pancake! Though it does look very cool  ::)

Thanks!
That hood size is not a problem with 1D. Body is so large that it is neat and blocks flares very well.

congrats! Looks very nicely done.

But please don't ever show this to Canon! Otherwise L-lenses will be shipped without hood, just like non-L's. And then charge 200 € for the fitting "carbon L-hood".  ;D

Looks nice indeed. Does it help? Do you get less flares etc?

How did you determine the right length (to get no vignetting)? Empirically or though a formula?

Nice work!  I would also be interested to learn how you built it.

I want this! I want carbon fiber hoods and body caps. I don't know why but I love carbon fiber and it looks awesome with a camera like that!

TIL: "flocculated" is a word. And sounds funny.

It's a perfectly cromulent word. I think we've all embiggened our vocabulary today.

kind of hard to see, but it looks like your 40 is rocking a filter.  the 40 has flared pretty hard at times for me when used with coated filters (B&W neutral density), so this should help at times for filter use
