Product Highlights
  • Deflects Stray Light
  • Protects Lens
  • Petal Shape
  • Bayonet Mount

The HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses from Nikon is a petal-type bayonet mount lens hood for select Nikon wide-angle zoom lenses.

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.

Compatibility
AF-S NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED

    There is much debate over the actual functionality of the Lens Hood beyond that of protecting the lens from bumps and falls. It has proved it's usefulness in protection not long ago when I dropped my camera bag, the hood broke to pieces and the lens was spared. However, the real purpose of the Lens hood has also proved true. When you are shooting in the bright daylight there tends to be a little thing called Lens Flare. I shot without my hood and was surprised at how apparent it was. I have heard people say that you can move around to avoid it, but I'd rather have the hood as an extra precaution. At only [$] and some change for shipping, it would be ludicras to shoot with out it.

    I have the Nikon 18-70 lens and the HB-32 lens hood and I have had continual difficulty putting the hood on straight and when it stores in the inverted position over the lens it fits loosely. Due to the difficulty installing the hood for use, it frequently causes vignetting in the corners if you aren't checking the viewfinder closely and has also recently caused a large dark area in the bottom center of the photos. I just returned from a trip to Paris where I finally had to just not use the hood to prevent these problems.

    Perfect Fit

    By Metz

    from McAllen, Texas

    Comments about HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses:

    A Nikon lens which I recently bought did not come with the hood. As I have always kept hoods and protective filters on all of my lenses, I purchsed this for the lens.
    In typical Nikon fashion, the fit and finish were perfect. One comes to expect that from companies such as Nikon. The hood gives me a sense of security. They have saved my bacon (lenses) on many an occassion. Highly recommended for value and protection.

                                      Comments about HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses:

                                      Assuming erroneously that a genuine Nikon HB-32 was expensive, I bought an aftermarket knock-off. It was too tight and didn't line up properly when seated. For a few bucks more, I got the Nikon. It fits with a nice click and lines up perfectly. It also reverses and fits over the zoom ring, which still provides enough surface to zoom the lens. When attached in the reverse position, the hood is not as tight, so snug it down a bit and be careful not to lose it. Service from B&H was stellar, as usual.

                                      I bought this hood as a replacement. There is not much to say. I use it all the time except when I want flare. It's light, its's easy to attach, it attaches backward when in storage so it does not take up much space, it's Nikon and it works like its supposed to.

                                      The only complaint is it not very rugged but I don't know of any lens hood that is. Overall great product.
