Lens Hood For DFA 28-105

What is the lens hood that fits/comes with this lens? Mine has gone missing somehow.

Iíve looked around at a couple of websites, but canít seem to figure out which one to get.

Iím in the process of selling the house and becoming a full-time RVer. Which means that I need to reorganize all my stuff and how I carry it the truck. When I unpacked everything I discovered the 28-105 was missing itís hood and I canít find it (but did find the long-time missing hood for another lens).

I want to order a new one as I use it a lot, but canít figure out which one to order.

Ah, ha! Thank you VERY much!

I had just read a review on Amazon that said it didnít fit their unspecified lens and someone else said it only fit the 18-135. I didnít get as far as the question on B&H that said it would.

Of course, since Iím going to be ordering from B&H, thereís a limited lens I want but donít really need... And I was looking at Pelican cases but bought the Apache case from Harbor Freight, a Pelican case for comparison and extra storage would be cheaper than the lens...

Iíd be better off paying for postage, but whatís the fun in that?

Yep, that's the one. A mere slip of a hood. It never occurred to me that it's the same one as on the DA 18-135. Good to know in case I ever lose one, as I'd never pack those two lenses simultaneously.

LOL! I wish they had only gotten switched, but the found lens hood was for the DFA 100 macro, so not a chance!

I had been betting on the truck, but no such luck.

It was a lens case that I use for hiking (attach it to the hip strap of my hydration pack) that swallowed the macro lens hood. I was feeling desperate for the 28-105 hood, so I went through every camera bag and lens case I own looking for it.

It turned out B&H offered free shipping for the hood, so I didnít buy anything else. I was sure tempted by a couple of items, but resisted (with effort). It should be here Friday.

Some time in the future you just know that it will magically appear.

But for now you can shoot to the stars.

Put this one under lock and key
