I just bought the 5D kit from Circuitcity. Everything isOKexcept thatI could not find the lens hood in the package.The lens is Minolta AF DT 18-70mm.

Is this normal for 5D kit?

Any help will be appriciated.

I bought my Maxxum 5D kit from BHPHOTOVIDEO.COM and it did come with the lens Minolta AF DT 18-70mm AND the lens hood. I think my lens hood was attached to the 18-70mm lens when it arrived. I believe that you should have received the lens hood too. Check back with Circuit City. Maybe you can exchange your Maxxum 5D kit for another one.

I got my kit at B&H as well. It also included the hood.

The hood should be in the kit, as others have already mentioned.

Are you sure it's not already attached to the lens? It's not a very large hood.

ealleycat - When we bought our 5D we wondered where the lense hood was, too, but we found it! It was on the lense....but it wason backwards (to save space inshipping, I'm assuming). My husband removed it and put it on the correct way. Take a look at your lense to make sure this isn't the case for you, too.

Heck I feel stupid :?Iwas going to say I didn't get one either. Then I read MaryRose's post about it on backwards. Well I got one there it was! I didn't even think about that. I did think it look funny butI didn't think it was the hood on backward.
