I have absolutely no trouble with 16-55 hood whatsoever, easy on, easy off every time. Take a close look under magnification to see if a bit of plastic flashing that needs a trim. I do have a screw on hood that allows my X-T2 w/16-55 to fit in my Peak Design 3L sling bag, it protects the front element well, but doesn’t cast shade as well as the original.

Now the original hood for the 56mm is another matter...

Hi Erik,

Thanks. There is nothing obvious, but the mouldings are not smooth to touch. May be I take some sand paper to them.

If that fails (or the WD40 suggestion from others) I may look at the type of hood in your image, which I have seen on eBay.
