Hoods for legacy lenses used with NEX?
Feb 2, 2013

A lot of my legacy lenses came with hoods, but it is my understanding that you generally need a "tighter" hood to be effective when a full frame lens is used with a crop sensor. Anyone know whether there are 3rd party companies making APS-C hoods for Canon FD, Minolta MC/MD, Nikon F, etc? Would it be as simple as finding a 35mm Nikon hood to fit a 24mm Nikon lens?
