    Thanks Jens for the helpful explanations. As a beginner it has helped me very much finding the right lens-hood [EW-73B] for my Canon EF-S 18-135mm and I have learned something! 🙂

    Hi Jens,

    Nice web site!

    I’ve been looking for a Minolta lens hood 6628-810 (white) or a 6589-810 (black) or equivalent.

    It is for a Minolta 80-200 /2.8 HS-APO G lens.

    Can you please share any ideas if possible?

    Thank you,

    J.

    Hello dear J.

    the Minolta 80-200 /2.8 HS-APO G is a fantastic lens!

    I´ve been searching for one hour and couldn´t find a fitting bayonet lens hood.
    In this offer it is sold out: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/35876-REG/Konica_Minolta_6628810_Lens_Hood_for_80_200mm.html

    Some people are selling the lens together with the lens hood. Maybe you could ask them if they sell the hood separately? They are business men after all.

    But there are a lot of screw in lens hoods for your required filter diameter: 72mm.

    The right length of the lens hood can be tested by rolling paper around your lens to see at what length the vignetting effect starts.

    Sorry, I couldn´t be a big help for your task to find the perfect lens hood.

    Regards,

    Jens
