After much research and limited budget I purchased this highly regarded (Nikon fit)lens. It was delivered with the lens hood attached-Tokina click system. The problem I have is I can't remove the lens hood and don't want to use too much force. Any suggestions please?

Thanks Carl

Hi. When you say it was allready attached, I presume it was reversed. Might sound a bit obvious, but are you trying to turn it/unscrew it in the correct direction?

i have this lens and yes i agree the lens hood does attach very firmly, it does take a fair bit of force to to remove it and when you put it back on it goes on with a good click.
im sure you wont hurt the lens its built like a tank :D
