I use this Mamiya collapsible rubber lens hood as a replacement for the rigid standard Canon 70-200 2.8 lens hood and it's near-perfect. It collapses on itself quickly and can be pulled right back fully open, so no need to stop, remove a bayonet mount & reverse before stowing. With the camera/lens sitting at hip height when shouldered, the rubber helps protect both my lens from numerous bumping of furniture and walls as well as the heads of small children. It's also well-made and durable, having just replaced the same hood after six or so years of rigorous use.
Only drawback--a minor one--is that it is shorter than the standard Canon hood, so that it won't block quite as much sun.

Works great on 70-200mm

Comments about Mamiya Lens Hood for All Lenses 127mm to 250mm for RB and RZ:

Love the ability to adjust the hood by extending the rubberized hood. So much more convenient than the stock hood.

      Comments about Mamiya Lens Hood for All Lenses 127mm to 250mm for RB and RZ:

      The Canon Hood is clunky and tough to put on. It is also intimidating to look at from the other side of the camera. The Mamiya Rubber hood is great at all zoom lengths without encroaching on the image. Plus if you happen to bump it into

      Comments about Mamiya Lens Hood for All Lenses 127mm to 250mm for RB and RZ:

      This is a great substitute for the lens hood that comes with the Nikon 70-200mm which, as anyone who owns one knows, falls off or eventually breaks. It is a little bulky, making it harder to fit in a smaller bag, but it really works. I highly recommend it.

          Nice hood for hockey when I'm shooting through the glass. Solid build. Looks like it will last a long time. Haven't noticed any vignetting on my 70-200 2.8 yet.

            Comments about Mamiya Lens Hood for All Lenses 127mm to 250mm for RB and RZ:

            After hearing recommendations from others, I bought this hood to be used on my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II lens. The rubber hood is great for shooting hockey through glass, also good for basketball at arenas where they require use of rubber hoods. It's big enough to serve well as a lens shade, but is less obtrusive than the Canon hoods. Folds back for easy storage in the bag. It will accept a lens cap while attached to the lens. And it is a very solid, not nearly as flimsy as other rubber lens hoods.

              Throwing away the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G bayonet lens hood and replacing permanently with this one. It solidly attached by threading on much more reliably than the aforementioned hood. Not only that, it collapses rather easily, even though it is thick pliable plastic, and there is no need to fumble w/ turning a stored hood around when you deploy the lens. Nice! I'd like to have this for all my lenses. (hint/hint)

                I'm a wedding shooter and I've been banging my Nikon 70-200 into everything you can imagine. My lens hood has a nice variety of paint along the edges. This product is rubber and "bounces" rather than making that loud band that catches everyone's attention. It also screws on making it very stable and prevents you from having to chase your bouncing clanging plastic lens hood down the center aisle of a quiet church.

                      I use this on my Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR II lens, so its not a Mamiya product review. I confess to having seen this same hood on a few photographers lenses (McNally and Kelby) so it wan't my idea but its a great one whoever came up with it. The hood is super heavy rubber yet pliable enough to be folded back for storage. Heavy enough to offer awesome protection to bumps and knocks and its every bit a great hood for preventing flare. The screw on mount is welcomed preferring it to the bayonet mounted OEM version that falls of at all the wrong times. The screw threads were very fine and took some effort to get mine mounted but once attached its not going anywhere. An added plus is it looks darn cool too! Its about as perfect as a lens hood could be.

                              I purchased this for use on a Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 and for a 70-200mm f2.8 vrII. Fits the 77mm end of the respective lenses perfectly, with or without a filter and allows for use of the original lens caps with no issues. Although a bit wider than the original, the ability to collapse it means no need to reverse the hood for storage, and the the soft rubber better protects the end of the lenses from accidental bumps.

                              Comments about Mamiya Lens Hood for All Lenses 127mm to 250mm for RB and RZ:

                              This Mamiya 77mm No2 rubber lens hood is excellent and reliable rubber hood for 70-200mm range. Currently i use it every day and especially it is a saviour for hockey (behind the glass). The rubber is solid and will not modify, when pressing it against the glass.The good thing is that it bends, when pressed against the glass as you follow the action. You may encounter a problem when putting the lens with this folded rubber hood into your bag, or taking it out as the diameter is bigger than Nikkor's original one.
                              As a next step it would be good to know if other Mamiya 77mm No1 rubber lens hood would fit and not cause any vignetting problems with Nikkor 24-70mm

                                Convenient replacement for klutzy Nikon shade on 70-200 lens. Screws nicely into lens and can be kept on. Just flip it out for shooting and push it back (flatten it) when you're not shooting. Reason for 4* instead of 5* is that the lens is wider with it installed and will require reconfiguring camera bag.

                                    I am using this on my Sigma 70-200 f2.8.

                                    I really prefer this over the standard plastic lens hood.

                                    I am considering ordering another for my Nikon 161-35.

                                      This hood is so much better than the original all rubber hood! The rubber is thicker and the outer portion seems to be reenforced with metal or hard plastic.
