Lens cover help please
3 months ago

I have a Sigma DC 18-250mm 1:3.5-6.3 HMS (non Macro) lens and the problem is that I am having trouble finding a replacement lens hood for this lens. I can find replacement hoods for the macro version (62mm diameter) but not mine which has a 72mm diameter. I believe the Sigma LH780-04 may be the one that I need, but have looked everywhere but cannot find any further details about this hood.

Can anyone please help me.

Many thanks in advance.

I have looked on Amazon and Ebay with prices from £28-95! The problem that I have is I cannot find any details as to the diameter of the Sigma LH780-04 other that it is a bayonet fit. What I do know is the hood for the macro version will not fit

Your profile tells me you are in the UK. Why don't you call Sigma UK - they do sell lens hoods directly as well and are very nice people to deal with. You can call them on 01707 329999.

In US the LH780-04 is available on the Sigma website for 17 USD. I have called Sigma USA in past for parts not specifically listed on site with good success.

Come to think of it, Sigma UK might also have that lens.
