    Arrived today. Only had it a few hours and mostly so far, so good

    EXCEPT . . .

    How do you take off the "decoration ring" to put the hood on?

    Feeling kinda dumb here . . .

    Just twist! It is pretty stiff, so it does take a bit of effort.

    Thanks! Yeah.

    You have to turn it hard. It is on there VERY tight. Like, it doesn't feel like you're doing it right and are about to break something inside the lens. I was sure there was some kind of trick to it, like "push and turn" or something.

    Ha, feel a bit silly asking the question but hopefully this helps someone else.

    Did you get the lens from B&H? Mine still hasn't shipped out. :(

    I got it from Samys.com. A little issue with the shipping but it arrived quickly otherwise. It shipped the morning after I ordered, took three days to get from California to Pennsylvania, then three days to get from the FedEx office five miles from me to me .

    Someone told me that next delivery from B&H is on March. I sent an email to them to confirm this and they confirmed it. This was because of the high demand due to the $99 price. :(
