Hi, am I the only one getting absolutely fed up the the appalling lens hood on the 16-55/f28? This lens costs £999 - yes £1000 pounds in the UK, yet the lens hood is abysmal. It will not go one first time when needed and after 10 months with it I still find it impossible to reverse and store.

Fujifilm - this hood is wholly unworthy of a £1000 red badge lens. Hobby horse over!

Fuji hoods in general just suck, honestly. Well, the F2 primes are adequate, but the 50-140 is beyond awful. I don't think I've ever managed to get it on without a struggle, regardless of the techniques people have suggested here ( and the fact that you even need a 'technique' is bad enough. )
