Anybody with a broken lens hood screw (it tightens hood to lens) found a replacement without sending the lens hood to a Nikon repair shop? Nikon doesn't make it easy to find or fix these little (but important) off the wall parts.
Broken Lens Hood Screw for Nikon 500 F4 AFS(3 posts) (2 voices)
My suggestion, if you are in the USA, is to check with Automotive Fasteners. They have supplied all sorts of difficult to find screws, metric and US sizes for my equipment. And, I know what the little screw on the 400mm hood looks like. They may have a very similar one..in an Allen head cap screw. Just Google "Allen head cap screw"
Thanks msmoto, I'll give it a try. I would like to at least approximate the original but if they have something that works that would be good.
