    Hey all,

    Looking for a hood for a Mamiya 55mm + 80mm lenses. Square metal ones.

    I can pay via personal check, cash or PMO. I don't use Paypal.

    Please send me a PM with your asking price(including shipping to Los Angeles) and if you're open to offers from that price(by nature I'm a haggler :wink:)

    thanks!

    -Dan

    Are you sure you really want the metal hoods made by Mamiya?
    I found the darn things way too clunky, too expensive, and the jam screw mucks-up the lens barrels.

    I'm far happier using a step-up ring or two, and using a three-way collapsible hood or a rigid round hood. Using the three-way, I cover the 55, 65, 80, and 105. Another rigid (rubber) set-up and i've got all the longer lenses covered.

    Just a thought,
    Marc
