Adtkart, Check the lens in that hood and if it is the Chameleon (adj 9-13) then it is the same one that is (was) found in the $200 Hobart hoods I have been told that the newer Hobarts use a different lens now, I have not looked at one lately to know for sure, but I do know the older ones used the chameleon and it was a really good lens. The one I bought about 5 years ago I used for about a year before trading up to the pro Jackson and it worked really good. I only bought the Jackson because I got it for a give-away price and I gave the Hobart to one of the guys at the shop who has used it nearly every day since with no problems. I think it is probably the same lens you have and if it is it is a good one
