Great Jumping Jehosophat! $150 for a BayIII lens hood? That was a BIN price when I ebayed it. OK, so it was NIB with leather case, but still. For a lens hood? Plus the cheap plastic ones Nick mentioned I found for $17.99. Obviously not worth buying. Well, if I sell my IIIf RD ST I might have a little extra cash...
But, in the meantime, I'll make do with my cobbed up aluminum made-in-Japan round hood that somehow screws onto a BayIII adapter ring. And it actually works.
Ted, you may want to check Koh's camera for Bay III hoods. I have no connection to them, nor have I used them, but have checked them out in the past and they seem to carry quite a bit of odds and ends.
I have all three Rolleinars for my 2.8D that is not as nice looking as your TLR, Melanie. I sold my shiny 2.8E and 2.8F and kept the users 2.8D to use. I added a Maxwell screen to give the 2.8D a face lift from inside.
The Luigi strap will have to be my next buy. Thanks for the tip here.
