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.

    I purchased the orginal AF 200mm 2.8 (push/pull) in 1988. Loved the lens and still like the push/pull. This first lens had an all metal quite compact hood. I made a mental error while the lens was on monopod and in process taking lens off camera body. The lens fell forward on monopod and crashed into "soft" running track. The metal screw mounted hood transferred all of the shock to the AF mechanism. Nikon could not provide factory parts so did not repair. I took insurance money and bought later version with the HB-7 Hood. Fast forward a number of years and I made the same error again.The new lens with the HB-7 hood crashed to track surface in a very similar way to the first lens. The non-metal bayonet mount HB-7 hood took the impact and gave in, stripping the bayonet mount from the hood. But the hood had absorbed the impact and the lens came through in fine condition. I should purchase a new HB-7 but have begun using the former metal screw mount hood which itself was unharmed in the first accident. No need to purchase another 80-200 - even though the 70-200 2.8 VR is very attractive.

      Comments about Nikon HB-7 Bayonet Lens Hood:

      I bought the lens it goes on second hand, but when new the factory did not provide the hood in the box, and it probably should have been there in the first place. Price is a little high, but it matches the finish of the lens. That is all nice, but in the end it is a lens hood, and now I can use my left hand for other things besides shading the front element.

      A great way to protect your investment

      By RickO

      from Brick, NJ

      Comments about Nikon HB-7 Bayonet Lens Hood:

      This hood is very nicely made and matches the finish of the lens. I always use a hood to not only diminish the chance for glare, but also to protect all of my expensive glass. It would have been nice if Nikon supplied the hood with the lens instead of making it a separate purchase. Overall, though, if you have good lenses, don't skimp on cheap hoods.

            I use this on my Nikon 80-200 for flare reduction and front element protection. It is thick and sturdy and the texture matches that of the lens. The fit on the lens is looser than I expected. It is also pricey for what it is, and really should have been included with the lens.

                  I purchased this lens for my 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF lens. The hood has a nice tight fit on the lens, which reduces the worry of it falling off. I like that the finish on the hood matches that of the lens. The only down fall, is that it did not come with the lens, it had to be purchased separately.

                              Purchased a cheap off brand lens hood for my 80-200mm f/2.8 Nikon D-AF Lens. Used the hood three times, tried to take it off the lens to put back in case and hood split at camera, taking my lens filter off with it. Had trouble getting filter out of lens hood. This hood works great! Easy off and on. Reduces flare. Works as intended. Wish Nikon would include this product with the lens instead of having to purchase separately.

                                  Fits properly, looks like it belongs on the end of an 80-200mm Nikkor...which is why it should come with it.
