i just bought a metal Len Hood for my Rolleiflex 3.5E ( serial no 1748514 ). the seller declared it is Bay-II mount but i can not manage to mount it on to my lens.
after carefully checked my lens mounts, i found the two lens mounts of my TLR are positioned one closed to another, i mean there is no gap between two mounts, nothing can be inserted between two mounts. so, i think, if a lens hood can mount the lens, it has to get a male mount and insert into the female slots of the lens mount, not covering its outer. but the lens hood on my hand gets a mount likely to be female, and its size make it looks like it should cover the outer of a lens mount. it is impossible.
i don't get digicam so i can not upload picture for my camera and the lens hood. attached is a pic of 2.8F i got from net, which has a same ( or similar ) structure with my lens mounts. i hope you can see the problem and tell me what is the wrong.
thank you in advance.
