Hi everyone

I was wondering if there are any facilities here in US that offer shaving 8mm lens hood/shade?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Roy,

welcome to the forum.

Till now I only have heard about the european service of Tobias.

I add a link for doing it yourself. It works fine that way. I shaved a Nikkor 10.5 and a Samyang 8mm that way.
