    I took delivery of this lens yesterday. It seemed fine until it came to fit the hood. Try as I might I could not get the hood markers to line up resulting in the top 'petal' to be 15-20mm off centre to the right. (Looking from the back of the camera) The lens is on it's way back for replacement but I just wondered if anyone else using the lens has had any similar issues. Thanks - John

    I bought a second-hand one at The Photography Show towards the start of the year; the hood fits perfectly and I wonder what happened to yours such that it wouldn't line up correctly.

    There was no problem offering the hood up to the lens. It slotted on and turned freely until the marks on the hood and body were 2-3cms apart but would go no further. I asked the dealer for a replacement hood to try but they wanted the whole thing back. A pain having to parcel it up and send it back but fair play they paid the postage!
