:confused:

Not having a good day!

Bought this too: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330565262084&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

LH-61D hood for my 40-150 lens.

Can't get it to attach as there's always a gap one side whichever way I try, see pic....... Gap is just under the writing on the hood.

1533

Any ideas???

Not sure if this is the complete answer but the LH-61D is for the MK II version of the lens (as the ebay ad states it's for) while yours seems to be the MK I - maybe you need a different lens hood for it (but maybe not)

You're quite correct!

I needed LH-61B!

Ah well.... anyone want an LH-61D before it goes back on Ebay!!

Price is what I paid - see link above.

Yes, you need a LH61B. I did have a spare one of these, but after a quick look have not been able to locate it. If it turns up I'll let you know!

Yes, send me your bank details and I'll transfer 19 to you for it posted!
Oh.... that's just for the hood. No need to send the whole lens!

As it turns out, I do need that model as I have the 40-150 ED version. I was going to bid on it but had set a limit of 15. Saying that, I'm OK giving you the cash for it when we see each other next.

I'm the one who bought the two other hoods from the same seller ;)

Aha! So it was you bidding me up - you'll have to pay full price then! :p
...Only joking, if I hadn't fouled up you would have got it for your 15 so that's fine. Will drop it in when we meet up.

No, I didn't bid on that one as I saw too many people going after it, a sure sign that the price will go up. I did bid on the others though, and got them for 3.50 and 4.20 + postage. Cheap.

I'll give you the 16.50 you've paid as it completes my 40-150 lens.
