I've got the 50/1.8 II nifty fifty or plastic fantastic and the ES-62 hood (on the 62L adapter) but I need a larger hood. What options do I have?

The ET-62 and ET-62II hoods will also fit on the 62L adapter and they are much deeper.

Why do you need a larger hood? The elements are set so deeply into that lens anyway that you barely need a hood at all for light shielding.

I'd also think that a larger hood could lead to vignetting.

The ET-62 will not vignette on a 50mm 1.8 if it is used on a crop camera. It may even be Okay on a Full Frame because it is so wide in diameter.

Here is how it looks on my 5D. It doesn't seem to vignette even on full frame. It also fits on reversed for storage.

Ah, I found a picture. The Kodak stainless steel "rapid" processing drum:

http://www.photomemora​bilia.co.uk …Rapid_Drum_Proc​essors.jpg (external link)

The drum was smoothly dimpled and spun at high speed. Chemistry went into the tray below the drum. When the drum was set spinning, it carried a thin layer of chemistry on its dimpled surface. The tray was on gimbals, so you could tip it to empty one chemical and pour in the next as you processed the paper.

The exposed, unprocessed print paper hydroplaned on top of that thin layer, held by the fabric mesh. But you had to set the paper on it--while the drum was spinning--in total darkness. As I said before, if you got it wrong, the drum spat that $5.00 sheet of paper (in 1970 dollars) against the opposite wall.

It took a learned knack...that is unnecessary today.

Are you suggesting using a processing drum as a hood?

I think you may have wandered in through the wrong door :lol:

It might help people think of options, if they knew what you are trying to achieve. I can understand the desire for a larger hood than standard if using an EF lens on a crop camera, as the matched hood is designed to allow FF coverage. But you are using a FF camera, so the hood designed for that lens should be perfect, and you have already got one larger than that. We really need to know the objective here, to give a sensible recommendation.
