Also wondering if it's worth knocking up an extended hood out of plastic and taping it to the hood if that would help.
cheers!
Yep a little dew strap - 2" or so with mild heating - should do the trick. I have done so several times. Keep the strap right out at the end of the lens - don't want to get the chip toasty warm??

I guess get to temperature and recheck focus just in case?
