    It sounds like you'e getting some vignetting with the filter. If you stop down to f32 and beyond, you should have quite a bit of room for movements.

    Did you know that if you put a regular rubber hood on a 240mm lens it doesn't cover 8x10.... yet without the hood it does. Strange lens.
    I just wish I'd asked this question before I bought the 240.... since I was having similar problems with my former 210 lens and it's rubber hood. Oh well the 240 is lighter and should give me some room to move around.
    Thanks for all your help..... I guess that question about the hood wasn't so silly afterwards.

    Compendium lens shade is the way to go. Better flexibility and more movements are available. tim

    I use a 240 on my dorff and also a Standard Lee hood, works good unless I try to use front movements. I use mostly back movements with this lens anyway.

    You could also just not use the hood on your lens. I have a Lee hood that I bought used at a local store for those times where I thought I would need it. More often than not, I don't use it though. This is usually because I'm using my 4mm thick IR filter or the lens I am using doesn't have filter threads or is way too small for trying to put a filter holder on.
