Re: Simply go to the building store, get black sewer, cut it and sleep well.

hey now!!, I lost the hood to one of my 400 2.8 AFS lenses and sure as heck did cut and size a piece of black PVS  (Im 40 BTW!)

Nikon gets us on the little parts, I swear the make more on battery doors and lens caps than cameras and lenses.... needed the little screw that holds the outer hood to the inner and Nikon billed me $50

So you're suggesting that we cram a piece of black sewer pipe on the end of our $17,000+ dollar lens to save a few bucks?

Hate to say it, but kids think like that. Adults know better...
