    Rotate lens = no flower hood??

    hi,

    I have been looking on ebay for a flower hood, but then i've notice they all say it's screw on to your existing filter/barrel, then it has got me thinking because the my lens rotates as i turn the focus ring.

    does that means i can't get one?? or there are hoods out there has a different way to mount them??

    For which lens?

    both your lenses should have come with a lens hood.

    if you're thinking of replacing the 70-300 lens with a petal type, I wouldn't bother too much with it.

    Are you getting a lot of vignetting at 70mm?(you shouldn't be)
    Nikon D800E, D300, D70s
    {Nikon} -> 50/1.2 : 500/8(CPU'd) : 105/2.8VR Micro : 180/2.8ais : 105mm f/1.8ais : 24mm/2ais
    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC

    i only have the kit lens atm, they are 18-55 & 70-300

    the 70-300 does comes with a full hood, so far is fine, however the 18-55 doesn't come with any hood, it keeps me wondering why...and that's one of the reason i started looking for one. but if the lens rotates during focusing, it will lose the point of having a flower hood

    The 18-55mm does not provide an attachment for a lens hood on the main lens barrel, but it does have provisions for one on the secondary zooming lens barrel, it sadly rotates during focusing and the petal design may not apply, even if you find a petal hood. A full ring hood may be usefull, as it is constant in shape, if you can find one that can fit.
    This kit lens is a great macro lens, superb in rendering sharpness and colour saturation at close ups of up to 1/4 of a metre.

    it seems like the only way for me is to get a full hood for my 18-55mm

    and I do agree with you on this one, the 18-55 is fantastic on taking close up objects, not bad a for a kit lens.

    but i do want a 50mm f1.4 hehehe

    I think that you will find that the OP needs a Nikon lens hood, not a Canon
    Andrew
    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    Kenneth, select whether you want a petal or round hood here and make your own ----
