lens hood swap 48-85mm to 80-160mm?

Hi Guys,
just a quick question...
can I use the lenshood of the 45-85 on the 80-160?
I know it will be shorter, but nevermind
Thanks

Yes but it won't help much.
Particularly at the longer end.
An inexpensive flimsy fix would be taping black paper around the end.
I'm always on the prowl for better hoods.

On the otherhand No. Is there a 45-85 zoom?

Edit again: Where is the 80-160mm lens you are talking about?

Not in any practical sense. The bores of the two hoods are marginally different sizes (leaving it a little loose) and the twist lock puts the petals in the wrong orientation.

Crud.

I apologize.

My first point still stands.

Thanks Bob, I thought I'd check since I've seen a very good offer for the log one without the hood...
cheers
