    of course, mathematically and physically speaking, you'd have to end the thread somewhere where it corresponds to the vertical/horizontal angle of view of the lens mounted on the camera. that's why generally, petal hoods are found more as bayonet style, which screw on's are more to fixed focal length lenses, though there's always the exception.

    in short, its companies marketing, forcing ppl to buy the hood seperately for each lens.

    for why if comes with certain lenses, again its the company standpoint.
