    Aargh! The hood and integral cap on the 35mm are driving me nuts! It's all very well having a "perfect" rectangular hood but mine twists off true very easily and I am becoming obsessive-compulsive about checking that it is straight before each shot - not good for spontaneity... Couple that with the rectangular rubber cap and I am transported kicking and screaming back to the days of the v4 35mm Summicron - the damn thing cost a fortune and could be dislodged by the flap of a butterfly's wing on the other side of the planet.

    I am off to Heavystar or similar for a more reliable and robust solution... Who is with me?

    I bought a vented hood in eBay for $7, it also came with a cap.

    I use a 52 to 58 step up ring and an after market pinch cap. Works well enough.
