    For me, it's all about light, Frank. I'm still toying with ideas and ways to fashion it ... in a way that works for me.

    I have nothing in comparison to many on this website ... or for that matter, seriously interested in SLRs. I came to learn ... and share what I can.

    Hopefully, I can pass along what I stumble over ... and don't break along the way.

    It's the journey, not the destination.

    So don, since I have a multi coated 67mm UV filter for my 17-50/2.8, will this step up work on my bayonet type lens hood that came with my 17-50/2.8? The 50/1.7 is prone to flaring so I was hoping to attach the hood to this step-up ring, but it doesn't look like it will have space.

    Talking Rubber to the rescue ...

    You can buy a rubber lens shade/hood (<- click on link)

    that will literaly screw onto the front of the UV filter, if needed. It will also screw onto a CPL, provided it is NOT a low-profile CPL, signified usually with a "W" in the part number.

    You just need to "adapt" and overcome. LOL For a mere $10.00, it solves a lot of "lens hood" issues.

    BTW: Do not forget to get an extra 67mm lens cap (<- click on link), because you will still be using the one to protect your TAMRON 17-50 f/2.8 lens while it is in the bag.

    BTW, the rubber hood collapses down to a flat ring around the screw-on filter mount. It isn't always flared out like that. Very portable.
