I bought one a year ago, and need to get the sun shade off as it was bent from a drop. Does it just screw off? Mine is hard to turn and extend and I am not sure.


I got the 300mm f/2.8 ai-s which had a similar problem. The hood is not removable. It's made of metal (steel I think). So I just bent it into conformity with a mole grip, protecting the paint by placing some folded paper tissue between the grip's teeth and the hood, both sides. Now it's as good as new.
