Subject line says it all: For some reason, the lens hood on my Zeiss 21/2.8 no longer mounts - it will not turn and lock. Just sits there on the lens, but can't rotate to lock and align the hood. Can't for the life figure out why - nothing has been dropped or banged around.

Any ideas? I'm open to them or it's off to gaffer tape to hold it in place until I can send it in for warranty and/or buy a new one. First lens hood I've ever had fail. Zeiss might want to take a lesson from Nikon on that category...

Someone posted this a while back and I saved it just in case - how to un-stick the Zeiss lens hood latch mechanism:

Thanks for posting that -- have to give it a try!
