You mean you attach things to the lens hood?Thanks for the reply.
Yes I understand that. I'm using the lens hood for other purposes at night for external attachments, and also have macro adapters or extension tubes which shortern the maximum focusing distance to a position shorter than the length of the current hood. Thats why I'm looking to see if there's a shorter hood.
You could look for a generic rubber hood or third party hood that attaches to the filter thread. This way you are not limited by the bayonet mount of the Tamron lens itself. Go to OP and look for these.Yes. I have multiple lamps attached to my hood. Works great if I don't use my macro adapters, but the hood is too long if I focus any nearer.

Honestly I doubt you will find one that fits the bayonet mount exactly. John 3:16 does have a stash of spare miscellaneous hoods lying around. Perhaps you can drop by mid-afternoon when they are less busy and ask.Thanks for the suggestion.
Silly as it may sound, I had considered those options but they did not work for me because my macro adaptor does not end with a screw thread and it is stepped down to 55mm. Rubber ones did not work well because I needed a solid hood that can hold the tension (rubber tying) and weight of the attachments.
Thats why I'm wondering if there's any hood that fits such a requirement. May drop down to some shops to check it out too.
