Hello Fellow Birders,
In 2 days time I'm finally going back for a long overdue visit to my beloved Philippines. This will be my first in 10yrs. I'm planning to do some birding on this trip.
Last night, while taking out the 400mm f5.6 from its case, the lens hood got stuck while extended 2.5in from front of lens. Now it will not return and not even move. I cannot even remove the lens cover with my fingers because of the tight space to squeeze the 2 side little tabs. I used a screw driver to squeeze those tabs.
My question would be, have you heard anyone who has similar issues and had it repaired by Canon Philippines. I was wondering if this is just a 1 or 2 days jobs since it's just the hood.
