Does anyone know about different types of lens hoods available? I have been searching for a couple of months for the right hood and am about to give up and make one myself.

I have a Tiffen 86-C UV Filter on a telephoto lens andI want to add a lens hood.Does the filter havea standard 86 mm thread, ordoes the C mean something special (coated)?Ifone is not available, isthere a 90 mm clamp on hood to go on the outside of the lens?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Thanks for the link Tomsch. It looks like it will work.

I was hoping to find something a little deeper and wide enough to let in plenty of light, but have been unable to find anything. This one from B&H may be what I have to go with.

Imay try to investigate building my own. Where to begin?
