loose lens' sliding hood

Recommended Posts

I have an aged lens that has a loose integrated sliding hood, since it's fitted outside of the lens group/barrel, it might not need an expert to do it.   Does anyone know how a DIY trick?

I am no expert, but I believe this is due to the inner felt progressively wearing out. Also, IIRC, not all sliding hoods are alike in terms of construction and attachment to the barrel - it varies by lens type. For example, the Elmarit-M 90/2.8 seems to be particularly affected by this issue - I had one fixed a few years ago, but that was in the context of a complete CLA, where the lens was entirely dismantled. I know it seems like it should be an easy fix, but I'm not sure that's actually the case. I'd ask Leica or an experienced repair person. If you do, please post your findings.
