Sony DSLR users beware! – Massa Camera Lens Hood (for 55mm Diameter Lens) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Plastic quality is alright but nowhere near perfect.
Cons:
The lens hood needs to be screwed into the inner lens thread. This causes the whole hood to move with the lens motor hence it might not be there where you need it to effectively reduce glare. It also makes attaching the hood quite complicated. I was expecting the the hood would be clipped to the outer rim of the lens as with the original Sony hoods.
Other:
At 35mm and lower you start to notice the hood on the pictures.
Bottomline:
Not recommended for all Sony users who are looking for a cheap hood. Of all the DX products I've bought so far this was by far the most disappointing.
