20mm/2.8USM hood question
« on: July 29, 2012, 12:44:32 PM »
Hello, newbie here.... quick question

I had a 20mm/2.8 USM and hood that got stolen with some other photo gear.

I liked the lens, so naturally I replaced it.  Problem is, the new hood wont stay in place, no matter what.

The hood is the Canon one, not aftermarket.  You align the dots, give it all of 1/4 inch of twist and its "on".

I tried another Canon hood, thinking I had a bad hood.  Same thing.

So now my mind is playing tricks on me.  I seem to recall that the hood had that familiar "click" and locked in place when mounted.   Am I going nuts, or did something change?  I used my first 20mm a fair amount, but just about never took the hood off, and neither did it ever fall off.   On the new lens and hood combination, the hood rotates darn near on its own, cuts off the corners when doing so, then just falls off the lens.   Hanging my 5d2 from my side and walking about with the lens and hood, will result in the hood falling off.

Any help, greatly appreciated!~~
