    Or could it be that you have fitted a CP-L Filter on the lens instead ?

    Is it true? With a CPL filter on, can't fit a hood?

    TS, is your lens hood snap-on or screw-on?

    *I got a feeling you are actually using a filter thread screw on lens hood.

    I am using a CPL on my 55-250mm. Getting original hood for it. Any problems with the hood + CPL together?

    When using a CPL, usually no one use a Lens hood. Even if it can fit.

    BTW I just have to ask a couple of questions:

    1. Are you going to leave the CPL on your lens all the time?
    2. Do you know how a CPL work? and what it is used for?

    You need to turn the CPL when you compose to see the best effect right before shooting. It will be a challenge to turn the CPL when you have a lens hood on over it.

    Please watch that video I posted in your other thread. Try to understand what a CPL is meant to do.

    It is not a filter you leave on all the time. You put it on as and when you need it.
