G'day, if you are refering to the black hood, it does not go on the Phayee adaptor which is why most of us brought the phayee hood as well or a rubber collapsable one with a 72mm thread. Hope this helps....other people here may have a better idea but thats what I did.

that's the best way to go... once you've opted for the Phayee, it's easier - and actually still quite cheap - to get a collapsible rubber hood with 62mm threads. i suppose if you worked at it long enough, you could figure out a way to use the factory "petal" lens hood, but i don't think the results would be worth the effort... just my opinion, of course...

I ditto squirl's recommendation. Igot a collapsible rubber Hama hood (62mm) from B&H and it works great. Ikeep my Phayee adapter, Hoya UV filter and Hama hood on all the time unless I need to addmy macro lens.

Here is a picture of the setup with the Hama extended 2/3rds of the way out,taken with my daughter's cheapo digital camera:

It does fit. I am not saying I use it but I know others that do.

I have tried it and put it on in real bight conditions and would say it works.

It would not be real hard to knock it off but if fits fairly snug.

The secret is to tighten the thumbscrew before putting it on and then loosen it enough to slip it on and then tighten it.

I'm also looking for a hood. Please correct me if I am wrong:

If you take off the second part of the adapter, you could put on a 62 mm hama hood or keep the whole adapter assembled and use a 72mm hood.

Am looking at these hoods on Ebay. Any comments on them?

OK, thanks.

Which would you recommend the 62mm or the 72mm with the Phayee adapter?
