Rokinon Lens Hood Problem

How may I get the lens hood to stay on the Rokinon 16mm f/2 lens that I bought from you? I don't see a detent to prevent it from falling off.

Nonetheless, it is a wonderfully fast instrument.

I thank you for your reasonable price and prompt service

Be well,

Sorry for the delay, I've asked a floor manager in our store to check for me.

Our store floor manager informed me:

Chuck- All Rokinon lens that have a removable lens hood must be turned a full turn to lock into place.

My experience with such hoods is you need to find the groove that the hood's tongue fits into and once turned sufficiently locks into place. The grooves are small and not easily seen at a glance.

I hope this helps.
