new 90mm Macro Elmar Hood Problem
Jul 12, 2014

Hi everyone

I have bouhgt the rleased Macro Elmar.It is a great lens optically but has some ergonomic problems.
When lens is used without hood you get som contrast loss so it is better to use it all the time but how.If the lens is attached on camera there is not a lens cap to ise with the hood.So you have to put the combination to your bag without a lens cap which is prone to dust.If you take of the lens and put it to bag again there is not a way to reverse the hood on the lens and use the cap which comes with the lens.
There is a cap in the box and you can not use it with hood.So if you wanna use the hood you hav 2 choice.

1.Take the hood of every time when not been used and use the lens cap to protect the lens.But you need to put the hood in another lens compartment in your bag.

2.Use the hood always on the lens but without a lens cap.

There are two supplied caps in the box but none of them solve the problem.Anyone knows a solution for this?
