    $75 is a ridiculous amount to have to pay for a lens hood!

    I found this one in Germany....

    It's still too expensive!

    Hi, Isabel. The 75/1.8 has a 58m filter thread, and there are plenty of affordable 3rd party hood choices. Amazon offers a metal hood by EZ Foto specifically designed for the 75/1.8 for less than 8 bucks. Free 3-5 day shipping (2 day if you're an Amazon Prime member).

    Thanks...question

    Have you use it and is there any vignetting from it. I want the lens hood mainly to keep my fingers off the lens.

    A number of users on here are using those hoods with no issues!
