I'm going to look at this Tamron 28-75/2.8 lens from a posting on craigslist today and the lady who owns it misplaced the lens hood. Does anyone know it the hood from either the Canon 24-85/3.5-4.5 or the EFS17-85 will fit/work?

They all have 67mm threads for filters

Just an update here.

So I bought the Tammy 28-75/2.8 and I found a direct replacement hood from B&H that I placed on order just now along with a Bogen 484 ball head for my new gorillapod.

My initial impression from the Tammy is awesome. I wanted it as a portrait lens to compliment my 18-55IS and 55-250IS lenses. It is pretty sharp at 2.8, but it really floors me at f4. I originally wanted to go with primes, i.e. 28/1.8, 501.4 and 85/1.8, but the budget will not allow that right now so I think this was a very good compromise. I still have the 50/1.8 for low light but I found that beyond 2.8 would give me too shallow DOF most of the time anyhow.

Hi jitteringjr.
I moved your thread to the Tamron section, as most people will look here for Tamron lenses and read your comments.
Happy shooting with your new gear and post some samples!

Hi jitteringjr,

Hey, Thomas got there ahead of me. If you'd like there's a good opportunity for you to add some shots to our Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Macro SP AF Aspherical XR Di LD (IF) Lens Gallery thread which is looking a bit sad at the moment.

Have fun with the new toy. 8)

Bob.

Bob, Thomas:

Thanks. I originally put this in the Canon section because I was hoping to get input from Canon owners that may have the other Canon hoods I was trying to substitute with. now that I have when with a direct replacement, it does make more sense to go in the Tammron section.

I'll definitely throw some shots into the gallery thread hopefully pretty soon.
