Good Morning. I'm sam.
I'm wondering the compatibility of 85mm non-D hood and D Type hood.
Is it possible to use D Type hood to non-D Type Lens?
Please reply my e-mail.
Thank you.
Michael Hohner answers:
Well, both lenses have the same filter size, and both have a bayonet hood mount. There's a good chance, but the hoods may still be different enough to not allow cross-use. I have neither of the two lenses, so I can't try.
