    As those with this hood will know it's like a bucket. But it is reversible, and that's the good point.

    Can it be reduced in length, and how would one determine by how much.

    I don't use protective filters, preferring hoods instead.

    I suppose the length/shape was decided considering mainly the 75mm end where the hood can create more vignetting. For all the other lengths it is already too short and wide. The ideal hood is infinitely long with the angle matching the FoV.
    So you can cut it as much as you want but...
    Maybe a collapsible rubber hood may be a an option.
