As I have mentioned in another thread, I have a rubber hama hood and I have seen no effect when I use it, it does nothing. The truth is that if you see no difference in image quality why waste your money, Much like your expensive filter argument really. I am beginning to wonder why you are trying to drive home this whole hood issue, are you trying in get people to buy your new amazing adaptor setup or something?

Hey Lovelife,

Relax Bro, I'm just trying to answer his questions because I have the hood in question. Besides, The first link you submitted provided the following statement:

"Both the tulip hood and the rectangular hood are more effective than the round hood"

I agree, it's shallow and if I notice any lens flare, I do intend to get a hama or a pedal that will attach to the extender on my phayee adaptor. I appreciate your experience and recommendations but I have enough quizes in persuit of my degree.

Best regards,

JED

A hood protects your pictures from two conditions. The first and obvious is a flare, normally caused by direct or a bounced light beam from a strong light source. The second and more insidious is washout or lack of contrast caused by ambient light. We sometime write this off my saying it was hazy or I had the wrong exposure. Zoom lenses are prone to flare and are magnets for ambient light. Watch the television whenever you see professional photographers as sporting events or taking celebrity snaps or even in studio work. They always have a lens hood. Some say, me included, that a good hood, ugly and bulky, is the most important photographic accessory.

A good hood is more important then a good filte!

Some good reading there...

The FZ1 has a hood so does the FZ3 why none for the FZ10/15/20

The FZ1 tulip hood is a compromise.

Optimum hood should vary in length accord the zoom ratio it also needs to be larger in dia than the front element at the widest angle of the lens.

A hood for a 36-420 zoom lens is a big ask, don't know if a tulip one for that range is feasable, if so it would have a large dia and be long.
It also should be EDIBLE ;-)
