Nikon HB-25 Bayonet Lens Hood for Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8-4.0 D-AF Lens USA

You Pay: $17.95

The HB-25 Lens Hood (Bayonet) is for the Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8-4.0 85mm D-AF Zoom Lens. 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 "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

    I have found that it always better to go with the manufacturers items than off brand when buying small items like this. They fit better and definitely last longer. I know some will say that this hood is sloppy fitting but my last off brand was so tight that it broke when trying to take it off. So I would advise to buy brand names for small equipment.

    Does what it is supposed to do, my complaint is the loose fit; my solution is to thread only on the bottom and leave the top off, crossthreading creates enough of a friction fit that it will not just fall off on ya, will not damage hood or lens either.

        Camera mounted on a tripod, and my big feet decided to kick it. Proud to say, IT SAVED MY LENS, that time by giving it's life.

        Point is ... It's worth having protection your expensive Nikon lens. And I will be getting a replacement.

            I purchased this lens hood to use on my 18-200 VR because its lens hood broke about 10 minutes after I first used it. OK, a bit of an exaggeration. Although it's not a perfect solution, the HB-25 works very well, and it's much sturdier than the original.

                      so this is a replacement works like the orginal. Same model number and system.

                            I purchased this as a replacement for the original lens hood that was on my 18-200mm VR lens. I lost the original during travel and was relieved to find it here at a cheap price. Overall, very satisfied with the product.

                                I am a amateur photographer. Product was exactly as described. [...]Only problem: I am using the hood on a Nikon 24-120mm wide angle zoom. It was very diffficult to get on the lens. Seems like the hood and lens do not easily line up. Fear it will not enable me to easily attach / detatch at will.

                                  Comments about HB-25 Bayonet Lens Hood for Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8-4.0 D-AF Lens:

                                  Also works on Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-s Lens. Snaps tightly in place. Old one absorbed the shock of my camera falling from a tripod, & the camera/lens damage was minimal due to this lens hood absorbing the brunt of the impact.

                                    the majority of my work is outside and in sunlight so this is a much needed item for my lens.
                                    it reduces lens flare and reverses on the lens for easy storage.
                                    i would recommend this item as a must have to any one buying the associated lens.

                                      I have had some glare on some of my photos, but this product will help you keep your images sharp and crisp.

                                        I have found that it always better to go with the manufacturers items than off brand when buying small items like this. They fit better and definitely last longer. I know some will say that this hood is sloppy fitting but my last off brand was so tight that it broke when trying to take it off. So I would advise to buy brand names for small equipment.
