I read an article about one going for several thousand. Vintage Leica I think, unsurprisingly, but it might have actually been an early Nikon.Thanks--I'm one of the bidders on this, but it's beginning to look as if the price will get quite silly. I'll be hanging on to the cliff tomorrow evening. Have to decide what's rational to bid, given the amount of time I could spend fannying around trying to get one cheaper. I wonder what the record price paid on eBay for a lenshood is?
Try US$5555 - hood for a Nikon 2.1cm/4 Nikon rangefinder lens.I wonder what the record price paid on eBay for a lenshood is?
Think you are right--it certainly looks very like the HN-9 and it was offered for the 20mm. Might try bidding on this if I don't get the other one. Thanks.By the way, I am fairly certain the hood in this link is identical to the HN-9. It was originally made for the old Nikon 20mm f3.5 UD before the HN- numbers existed. Nikon started using product codes with 2 letters followed by a number sometime in the 1970s, and the HN-9 designation was then given to hoods recommended for the 20/3.5UD, 28/3.5PC and 28/4PC.
Thanks for the tip--tried a Hoya collapsible & sadly it vignettes when the lens is shifted. The metal ones might be OK, though. The shipping is quite cheap so I might try one if I don't get the one on eBay.
