Re: Is the hood on the nikon70-200 f2.8 fragile

Lensrentals has this comment on the description page for the 70-200 vr II:

"Please note: The hood for this lens may not lock into its reversed “storage” position due to an inherent weakness in its design. Nikon does not supply the piece needed to repair the broken part, and we cannot readily replace each hood that suffers from this issue as they are often on backorder. Luckily, this has no effect on the hoods ability to perform in its forward “shooting” position."
