Im about to buy the Lee universal wide angle hood and i was wondering what adapter to get.
Is there any reason against using the wide angle adapter on a normal or telephoto lens?

i would just rather have the versatility to use wide angle lenses as well as normal lenses without vignetting with a single adapter.

If you're buying the wide-angle hood, why would you not buy wide-angle adapters to go with it?

I'm getting the wide angle hood because again of versatility. i would most likely shoot between the 24-70 range but want the ability to go sub 24mm without vignetting so the wide hood was the choice. I'm just not sure how the adapters differ thats why i was asking is there any reason why you wouldn't get a wide angle adapter for a normal lens. if the only difference is how the adapter sits on the lens then i will buy the wide angle adapter.

I couldn't see the point in buying the normal ones, and then possibly needing to
buy the wide angle ones, as well, so I bough just the wide angle adapters. For
some filter sizes the wide adapters cost more, but for others they are pretty much
the same price. Case in point, the 82mm to fit the 24-70 F/2.8 L II, B&H shows
them both at the same price.

Understood; yes, it's the way the adapter mounts to the front of the lens and you'd need it to go wide as well.
