    Default screw on bayonet mount??

    Hey guys,
    i've got this problem.I'm currently using a tokina 80-200mm lens which incorporates a screw on lens hood.This is a damn hassle coz its a bit dificult to get it off and on.So i'm wondering if there is any solutions out there.Like maybe, a screw on bayonet hood mount???So that i could make use of the 77mm nikkor 80-200's HB17??

    (1) if u r willing to get ur hands down and dirty and do some DIY modification by maybe incorporating a self-made bayonet mount on to the lens body itself then yeah, i believe it can be done..just got to buy ur own extra materials and spend a bit more time and trail n error

    (2)the HB17 is designed to accomodate the lens design (alighment, position, etc) of the nikon's 80-200. the tokina's 80-200 will obviously have a slightly different lens design. so the HB17 may not give u optimal shading effects on the tokina 80-200.
