    Could someone with this lens please measure the hood diameter real quick? I'm planning my loadout and space is very constrained; I want to make sure things will fit before I buy.

    68mm OD, 65mm ID, 1.5mm thick at the rim, 23.5mm total length.

    The 25mm f1.8 is 55mm OD on the focusing ring, the mount is slightly larger at 58mm.

    25mmf1.8hood.

    Excuse the battered up appearance, it's somewhat well traveled.

    I didn't sample different points and rotate the hood then average to account for it being out of round, so there is almost certainly some degree of accuracy lost...

    ...however I wasn't aware that using a caliper to measure something was impressive :hmmm:

    I'll need errorbars on those measurements too, obviously.

    Kidding, kidding. Thanks a lot. :)
