Re: 300mmm F4 rear cover part falling off!

I would say the 40-150 lens has a similar rear cover too & not only that, the hood for the 40-150 has a similar rear metal cover which came loose on mine so I carefully removed all the old glue (stayed on the metal & came away from the plastic) & put new glue in the marked locations on the plastic. Not worth getting too excited over a hood that was easy to repair so it is now fine, but thanks for the heads up on this lens construction, although it seems a little strange they replaced that cover rather than regluing it. Could it be an updated internal design?

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
