    does anyone know if the 70-200 VR hood will fit on the 80-200 AF-S? looking at getting one very soon, but the HB-17 hood is super hard to find. one I'm looking at doesnt have the hood.

    Hmm... grinding on the "LENS"... does the hood fit without modification? IE could you mount it and use it without mods?

    Yes the hood will mount without any mods but will not be locked in place. So it will rotate at will and you'ed probably just end up loosing it. Did you look at the photos. the mod is very small. You probable would not ever notice if not aware of it.

    No before pics. But I can not strees enough how samll of a mod this is. the photo that shows that is a macro for the purpus of illistrating how to do the mod. You real would never notice this. I am a partiularly picky person and I am much more happy haveing a propper hood securley mounted. I'm even having second thoughts about selling the lens. But I do want the VR for shooting from the boat.
