    Anybody know what the best hood for this combo of lens and camera is? I'm having a little flare trouble. I saw that Chamonix were doing shades before but I can't find them any more. Cheers

    I would say the darkslide that you have in your hand (hopefully) while exposing.

    Check out the Lee lens shade system. A dark slide is handy but doesn't block light reflecting from other surfaces, and it has a nasty habit of showing up on negatives. You may need to have an adapter sleeve made if your lens doesn't have a threaded filter ring.

    The only problem with Lee shades is that they are out of stock everywhere and the date for new stock keeps getting pushed back.

    That's too bad, they're good shades. I use mine on my view camera lenses and my Hasselblad. It's very useful.
