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.

    I bought this hood because the Nikon hood was out of stock. It fits perfectly on the lens and cost half the price of the Nikon version.

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

          I use this product on a Nikon 18-140mm lens. It clips on easily, stays secure and functions just as it should. It is not too large as to get in the way, and it is not too small as to not protect well, or shield the lens from flare. It looks great, was priced right. I would definately recomend this hood to anyone with the 18-140 nikkor or any lens that this fits. Great product!

                      My camera and lens kit did not include this, hence had to buy it separately. Must have for a Nikon 18-140 mm lens. Fits well and saves your lens from direct hits.

                      I bought this lens hood to go with a Nikkor 18-140 mm kit lens that came with a D5300 camera. The hood is sturdy, snaps firmly into place and can be reversed on the lens for storage. It will protect the lens without causing any vignetting. What I don't understand is why Nikon didn't include it with the lens in the first place? That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

                        Lens hoods are probably the best protection for both flare and bumps on your lens. Reverses to fit on the lens for more compact storage.

                                      This will fit the new 18-140 lens.

                                          Fits perfectly with the Nikon D5300. Overall well made.

                                          My new Nikon 18-140mm lens did not come with hood. BH photo had best price.
