FA* 300mm f/2.8 Question

I have a Pentax FA* 300mm f/2.8 and every time I take the lens hood on or off it get stuck on the rubber that is on the UV filter. Does anyone else have this problem. I took the rubber cover off and I can screw the lens hood on and off with no problem. Has anyone done this? Am I going to regret no having that rubber piece.

Hi,

I own the same lens: are you talking about taking it off from the reversed position or the normal mounted position?

Yes... It goes on fine in either position, but is a real pain to get off of either position. Half of the time the UV Filter ends up screing off.

I sometimes have difficulty with it going on/off, but I've snugged the UV protective filter down quite well, so it's not much of an issue. I just have to be careful doing it. Generally I don't reverse it any more, unless it's for prolonged storage.

Regards,
Marc
