Question about Cameras
You have purchased a very high quality lens that is one of the main optics carried and therefore beat around by working photogs all over the world (I have the same model as well as the slightly less rugged 80-200 f2.8).
Becuase of this there are certain differences in teh lens that may be new to you. If you examine the bezel you will see that it is fully metal threaded even at 77mm and only contains a small rubber O ring. This is done for two reasons. Most importantly the quality of the lens means there si a major emphasis on vibration reduction. This is also why you will notice the lack of an actual apeture ring to bounce up and down, as well as zero external moving parts during zooms or focus.
Second it guarentees a solid mate between a specific filter and the bare lens and you dont risk a minor angle distortion as light passes through both pieces of glass.
While the lenses and filters are metal capped. The lens cap is plastic. It therefore will dig slightly into the much harder and un damagable metal rings. Simply squeez both releases on the cap all the way, twist the cap a quarter turn or so and pull quickly and sharply on one edge. this will like be the only time tha tyou will have to deal with this. Once you re attach the cap later, try to spin it a little bit on the threads themselves. the two peices will mate just fine I promise.
