DA12-24 and DA*16-50 hoods are interchangeable!

I was packing my cam bag for an upcoming trip, and was tight on space. I figured, I often shoot with the DA12-24 hoodless due to filters, etc, but I like to bring it to try to reduce flare situations. But it wasn't going to fit... but then I looked down at the model of the hood on the DA*16-50 and it looked familiar.... it was the same as what I had on the 12-24! Sweeeet! I love being able to use one part for 2 lenses (like the circ pol that I can use for both these lenses too since they are both 77mm). A happy accident for sure!

They look similar but slightly different and the part no. are different. Using the 16-50 hood on the 12-24 will have some issues with vignette on the wide end.

you're right... so I'll just use the 12-24 hood on both, though I lose the circ pol window thing that the 16-50 hood has.

Yup... they're almost the same but the 16-50's hood will vignette on the 12-24. On my last trip to Jordan I just took the 12-24 hood though, and I was fine.

Hope I don't run into many flare issues using the wider hood, but I doubt it. I do like the circ pol window though... oh well

I don't think that will be a major problem. The 16-50 hood vignettes on the 12-24 at 12mm, but only a little.
