I was curious if anyone has tried to use a different lens hood on their 28-300VR lens. The "tulip" hood is very long and I know it has its purpose but I was thinking about compact alternatives. Will either an HN-31 77mm screw on or HB-55 bayonette work? I was looking at buying a used hood and trimming it down to offset any issue when shooting at 28.
