HR-2 hood and 52-to-77-mm stepup ring arrived.

They came at the same time as my FogBugz book, delivered by the man in brown.

I’m surprised at how slim the hood is when it’s retracted. Great! Nicely made, too. I expect it’s going to be a nice addition to my kit.

The stepup ring is just in case I want to use a future filter, such as a circular polarizer or neutral density grade filter (neither of which I own) with the 50mm/1.4 lens as well as my main zoom lens, the 18-200 VR.
