B+W 58mm Screw-In Metal Telephoto Lens Hood #960

You Pay: $38.95

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The B+W #960 metal telephoto lens hood is made of black-anodized aluminum with light-absorbing flat black ribs on the inside, and due to it's cylindrical shape this hood is especially suited for telephoto lenses.

      Comments about B+W 58mm Screw-In Metal Telephoto Lens Hood #960:

      The standard Voigtlander hood for the 58mm f/1.4 SL2 lens is short, and quite costly. I had this B+W hood on my 85mm lens, and on a lark I put it on my 58mm lens. Amazing! NO VIGNETTING, as seen throught the 100% coverage finder of my Nikon F2.

      A 64mm push on cap goes over the lens hood.

      B+W finish is beautiful, and the paint finish even closely matches that of the Voigtlander lens.

        So many people complain that Olympus doesn't include lens hoods for some of their lenses. I bought this for the 75mm 1.8 m4/3 lens and it works great. Screws right into the filter threads. Costs a lot less too. No noticeable vignetting.

          Comments about B+W 58mm Screw-In Metal Telephoto Lens Hood #960:

          This is a screw-on lens hood for the Olympus 75mm micro four-thirds lens. It takes an extra 20 seconds to have it ready, but the advantages are that it can be used with a polarizer, as the whole hood rotates the outer ring of the polarizer, and secondly, the hood will not fall off. It also costs about 1/2 of what the Oly hood costs. I think the black hood looks pretty good with a black and silver body and silver lens.

            It's the right length to shade a short telephoto or medium telephoto lens, and it works fine for that.

              I wanted a lens shade taht would screw into my polarizing filter. This shade enables me to adjust the filter with the lens shade on.

              I can also screw the shade onto my lens.

                  This lens hood is not as wide as I was expecting. It does fit the lens, but you are not able to have the hood and the lens cap on at the same time. I was hoping for one that was wider so you could have the lens cap on as well, though this hood does do what I need it to - even though it is cumbersome to keep taking on and off.

                    I use the Pentax 55-300mm zoom. I reverse mount the bayonet lens hood when I store it in the bag. Being cramped quarters the plastic bayonet gets damaged and the hood never snaps into place again. After two replacements I said no more. Now I store the B&W hood in a separate compartment and just screw it on when using this lens. I have used B&W filters exclusively for years and this hood just says quality.

                      Comments about B+W 58mm Screw-In Metal Telephoto Lens Hood #960:

                      The day after I put this hood on my EF75-300, the lens fell out of my pouch and dropped about 2 feet onto concrete, landing hood first. The outer edge of the hood is almost imperceptibly out of round and the lens works perfectly.

                      It does a great job of preventing glare. It's much more economical that Canon's dedicated lens.
