Just got the opportunity to pick up this lens at a bit of a discount, and couldn't (didn't) resist.
One really dumb question about it, though. All the other lenses I've bought that came with hoods had the option of connecting the hood to the lens backwards for storage purposes - you put the hood on so it covers the body of the lens, instead of projecting forwards. Trying to do that with this lens doesn't seem to work, and I can't work out why - it seems to have the same connection as all the others (24-70 f2.8L, 70-200 f2.8L). Well, except that this hood seem to be more rectangular, rather than circular - maybe that's the problem.
Can someone enlighten me? Even if it's just to say "no, fool, it don't go on that way" (well, we are talkin' hood-speak, after all
