Both lenses use 58mm filters, could I use the 50mm f1.4's ES-71II hood with both lenses then? Would this cause any mysterious problems if it's doable?

Edit: If it would cause vignetting in the 85mm, could I vandalize the hood a bit to remove that? The reason I ask is I have an extra ES-71II in the camera bag and would like to use it for something.

I dont think it would cause any vingetting as 50 is wider than 85mm.

Im not sure if it would mount though.

That's what I was thinking too, since I don't yet have the 85mm I haven't been able to check if it can be mounted or not. Maybe someone with both can pitch in and clear this?

Filter size has no direct relation to hood size. The numbers in hood model number tell you the size of the mount, 71mm for the 50 and 65mm for the 85.

Ah, ok... Thanks for the information, didn't know that. :D

Even if they were both 65mm or 71mm, they still would not fit because they use two entirely different ways of mounting the hood.

The 50mm 1.4 uses a twist-on bayonet mount.

The 85 1.8 uses a clip on mount.
