300mm FA* and MH-RBC67

Hello,

I was very happy to bought my 300mm FA* f/4.5 because there was a MH-RBC67 second hand hood in the shop nearby my home.

But I have just learnt that there is 2 models. I have a 300mm fa* with the first system and the second system hood.

anybody has a solution ?

Thanks

I have a FA*300mm f4.5 and I never use the hood. I find the hood to cumbersome. I chose the FA*300mm over the newer DA*300mm f4 for the shorter length and lighter weight. I value the convenience of a portable tele that I can take with me when I hike.

My '5 centimes' thought...

I agree with you, but I like the idea that I can "complete" my 300mm, I bought this

But it is not reversible

I too recently got an FA*300/4.5, which had the hood missing. Its former owner had custom made one out of a tin can (!) (conserve) glued to a rubber collapsible hood with a 67mm filter thread - the tin can was exactly the right diameter.
Not very elegant though, nor reversible....

Had similar experience before, bought an earlier version 300/4.5 w/o hood, then got an original hood for that, but it's for later version The original hood is very hard to find now, I'm afraid you have to pay a premium price even you spot one...

I was searching on the forums for a replacement MH-RBC67 lenshood for my FA300/4.5.
Any chance you are planning to sell your hood?

I have the FA300 with four connections and my hood is broken. I have attached a 67mm screw with glue and its working quite nice. I could send my old one if you have tought of selling yours.

I returned the hood to the shop, but, you can ask to the seller.

I did not remember the price, but it was about 50Euros, without shipping charges
