This sounds weird, but one of the things that is keeping me from upgrading from 17-35/2.8 to the 17-55 is that I've heard the hood is huge!
I really like the size of the 17-35 with its hood - not too conspicuous or clumsy to carry. Can anyone tell me how much longer the lens-hood combination of the 17-55 is compared to the 17-35?

Thanks.

Kent,

The hood is larger then the 17-35 hood, but smaller then the 28-70 hood. I don't have it with me now, but I'd guess it is in the 2.25 to 2.5 inch range.

Thanks, Jeff.
I'm in a "lens consolidation" phase, and that one just looks too good to pass by - 24/2.8: gone, 45P: gone, 18-70: gone, 17-35: gone. Almost every time I use the 17-35, I find that a good portion of the shots are pegged at 35mm and I need to crop later. I'm just trying to avoid the 28-70/2.8 "paparazzi" look.
