Any issues with Sigma lens hood? Sigma 85 stuck..

Hi guys,

New member here, and I wish I would've joined sooner. Probably would've saved headaches...

Anyway, I've searched the forum with no luck regarding issues with the Sigma lens hoods, specifically the Sigma 85mm Art lens. I'm experiencing an issue all of a sudden where the lens hood, when placed both in the "in" and "out" position sticks horribly and is almost impossible to get loose. When I do, I have the same issue trying to put the hood back on. I haven't dropped it and nothing has changed, it just randomly started happening one day. My 35 Art doesn't seem to have this problem, which leads me to believe something must be catching on the hood. I have wiped (both wet and dry) around the entire ring on both the lens and the hood and when I do, it typically loosens up for a minute, but reverts back to being very tight.

Just curious if this is just me, or if anyone else is experiencing this issue?

Best regards,

Dan
