DA40mm Lenshood on F35-70mm Lens!!!

I have just bought a FA43mm lens, and the seller included a DA40mm lenshood as an alternative hood. It works well, but I am also very pleased that this little lenshood also works on my M50/1.7 and F35-70mm zoom lens - with no vignetting as far as I can see! I'm well chuffed, as it's such a neat solution.

I use a stepdown ring (49-28mm) as a hood for my FA43 and F28, works great no vignetting. I saw others here do it first. And the step down rings are wayyyyyy cheaper than a DA40 Ltd hood. Also adds an extra stealth element to your gear I find.

The fact your seller included a $40 lens hood is just awesome.

I use stepdown rings like SOLDBear mentions in the thread above on all my lenses and it's a great solution. With that I reduce all my lenses to either 49mm or 30.5mm.

I got vignetting with the F 35-70, though. Try at 35mm and I suspect you will find it too, ihasa. Works well at 70mm though.
