    I think wide angle lens hood are all so big & bulky. E Tamron 17-35 similar to Minolta's 17-35 lens hood also quite similar leh

    yeah, i know. the hood has to cover the wider angle-of-view for WA lens. but, shessshhh... u know how difficult it is to fit the 17-40 with hood (reversed) into a camera bag? the flower petal design always get hook onto something when i try to take it out from the bag. plus, the hood increased the diameter of the front element to the point where it cannot fit nicely into the lens pouches of my stealth reporter...

    There is an alternative hood for the 17-40 f4L if you are using DSLR, so no worries abt vignetting, I think its the hood for the 24/1.4L or something...EW83EII I think...can't rem... Smaller in size and slimmer, so u can reverse it and store w/ the lens with no problems.

    The front glass is not exactly a filter, but its just a flat plate of hard glass which helps to keep dust and stuff away fro mthe internal elements, thus it acts somewhat like a UV filter's primary function to protect the front lens elements. The real UV filter is the drop-in one at the rear of the lens.

    Hi, Nice meeting u at Seed.

    Anyway to sum it up... it a thread for crazy photographers who got nothing better to do (besides shooting) and who's fingers are glued to either the shutter button or the keyboard... simarly for the eyes... either on the monitor or the viewfinder.

    Futher summary.... a bunch of photog chit-chatting in CS loh.... mabbe to summarised... join the fun to find out.
