Re: Fujifilm Lens Hoods Suck Big Time!!!

Think if it happened within warrantee I would return lens and hood to supplier. My 16-55 lens hood developed over time to become very very difficult to take off, I could not figure the cause and even examined hood under a magnifying glass but could not see anything wrong. Eventually I bought a new hood from Fuji – not inexpensive at £16. This has now developed a very similar problem. Yes pencil lead does work but only for a while. Think, and it is early days, I have a solution – used WD-40 Anti Friction Dry PTFE. Sprayed it on the separated hood not the lens (! ) and let it dry. I can only guess root cause is galling between the anodised lens and plastic hood – quite odd.
