You can try to attach the hood and then the step-up filter.

I did not manage it and I nearly scratched the lens by trying to remove the ring. So I will never try again.

The hood for this lens can be fitted and then retracted. The retracted position allows good access to the filter ring – except, as I previously noted, that it creates a ledge fractionally higher than the tip of the lens.

Do you have this lens and such a ring? I

f yes please show me how to fit it. I would really like to use it. I bought this step up ring to fit filters on both 300 and 40-150.

And I can tell you that is not working.

You can place the ring in front of the lens but it is so tight that there is no way to screw it in. The hood retracts but also with the retracted hood the step-up ring will be entirely inside the hood. If you try you will then risk damaging the lens when you try to get it out again.
