Re: Hood for 85mm lens
In reply to happyfamily, Oct 25, 2012

I just got this lens a week ago (also without hood) and although I haven't done much shooting outside in the sun, it certainly seems to be a good idea to get the hood at certain angles. I saw a few (minor) flares that wouldn't be there had I used the hood. I'm planning to get one that screws right in the filter mount because I was unable to find someone selling the original. I was wondering - is the hood "reversible" like the 50-200mm one (meaning you unscrew the hood, revere it and screw it right back, giving much more compact size when packed)?
