Hello everybody

I do not know whether others are also experiencing the same problem. I am an addict of polariser when it comes to outdoor photography.

My 55-200mm Nikon DX lens came with a bayonet lens hood. While it does it's job and also looks nice, when it comes to using a polariser, I have to remove the hood, adjust the polariser and again put back the hood.

And my 18-55mm Nikon DX Kit lens came without a hood. Here I tried to hunt for a suitable hood, but all of them are petal shaped. Again when using a polariser orientation of the hood changes(obviously) when I rotate the polariser. Even worse, this lens has a rotating front part for focusing (whereas the tele zoom does not rotate). So I am forced to use this lens without a lens hood.

Any opinions or advice on this?

thanks in advance
