Hi Dyxumers,

I have seen a Minolta 28-70 with petal hood. I would like to know if is possible to buy it anywhere.

It's rather difficult. There is an antique thread mention a DIY petal hood:

Or you can use the hood of Sony 16-50mm/2.8 SSM. However, it is a little hard to attach and store.

I have been looking for a hood for my 28-70G in the past, I found hard to find one. At one time I used a rubber, collapsible hood, but it gave a lot of vignetting if I forgot to collapse it when using the lens at 28mm:


Take a look at the link beautiophile shared, it gives you different options. I did not know about the 16-50/2.8 hood. Anybody with more information?

I didn't know about the 16-50 hood on it .
I'll try it on mine later .
I did get a spare 28-70 hood for mine to glue the Canon hood on to but never got around to it .

The photos of the lens hood of my 28-70 G. I bought several Canon hoods on Ebay and Aliexpress. I was lucky that one of them had the inner part covered with velvet. I cut the original minolta hood to use the union with the lens and glued the Canon sunshade petals by doing many tests and adjustments before finishing the work. Cut, measure, check vignetting, glue, sandpaper, putty, paint, etc. I did it in a car paint garage to have a perfect result. More contrast and less flares.
I hope it helps.

Dumb question: wouldn't a generic petal hood of the right diameter size work?
More Dyxumer, less photographer.

You could use a screw in petal hood, indeed, but a bayonet mount hood is much more convenient.

I've just tried the hood of my 16-50/2.8 on my 28-70/3.8 .

First off , the Minolta 28-70mm f.2.8 G has three lugs For the shade .
The Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 hood only has two , big ones , but only two .

While it is possible to fit it on the lens , assides from being awkward , it doesn't sit right .
However I tried , when I got it to stay on , the top point of the hood was in the 10 o'clock position .

So as a direct replacement it's no use , if your missing your original hood it would be easy to use it as a base for gluing the Cannon hood to .
I few minutes with a Dremill would adjust the slots to make fitting easier .

The petal hood shown here by the OP, what is the story on it?
Only from the mind of Macronut.
