Nikon HB-4 Lens Hood (Bayonet) for 20mm f/2.8 D-AF Lens

You Pay: $19.95

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.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

      Comments about Nikon HB-4 Bayonet Lens Hood:

      I purchased the Nikon HB-4 to use on a
      Nikon 20mm f2.8 lens.
      I could not be happier with this choice.
      It fits the lens extremely well while staying
      very compact for carrying.
      I am very happy with it.

      Finally bought the hood

      By Sportography

      from San Diego,CA

      Comments about Nikon HB-4 Bayonet Lens Hood:

      After 10 years of owning the 20mm 2.8 Nikon lens I finally bought the hood. It good but sometimes it doesn't stay in place. It's just a twist lock and doesn't have any real locking system so it will sometimes come off if it's bumped. It's a little smaller than I thought it would be. Helps a little to keep the flair out of the lens from side angles. 50/50. Good about half the time. I'd still buy it as it doesn't take any room in the bag.

        This kind of hood is mainly made for protecting the front glass of the lens, but it works good.

        Tight Fit

          Comments about Nikon HB-4 Bayonet Lens Hood:

          I bought the Nikon version of this hood (vs independent brand) expecting the best fit, but was disappointed to find that I could not get this hood in place with a reasonable amount of force. While the 20mm AFD is quite a well-made lens, I was afraid to twist the hood any harder onto the bayonet mount fearing that the lens barrel might come out of alignment. A few minute's careful work with a metal file shaved enough material off the lens hood's plastic tabs so that now the hood clicks into its mount perfectly, with still enough friction to hold it firmly in place. Not a big deal, but when paying 20USD for such a small piece of plastic, one would expect it to be near perfect. Note on a wide angle lens such as this, the lens hood doesn't make a dramatic difference, but every bit helps (especially given the older, less flare-resistant design of this lens) and it provides some protection against a light rain collecting on the front element so long as you keep the camera pointed level to slightly downwards. Although it took some "custom fitting" this particular hood's bayonet mount stays on very well unlike some others I've experienced where the hood constantly works it's way loose and falls off (for example Nikon's infamous 24-85mm f/2.8-4 lens hood)

                        I bought this hood to replace one that broke on a trip to the floor. The previous hood preformed perfectly and absorbed all the shock of the camera and lens hitting the floor.

                          Purchased for my son. Gave him a 20mm 2.8 Nikon lens that does not come standard with one. It is a hood for a super wide lens. Very shallow so the lens doesn't see it. Will work fine.

                                        Pretty good. Constructed for the older 20mm lens, it doesn't click into place when twisted all the way. Other than that its well made and snug fitting. Shading the lens but more importantly protecting the front element.

                                                Made to order hood for a Nikon 20mm f/2.8, redces likelyhood of stray light.

                                                    Well made metal lens hood that Nikon used to include with a lens purchase. I would rather pay the extra cost and have it be one purchase price for both lens and hood. Remember when Nikon supplied cases and hoods with ALL their lenses?
