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.

    Used it with my 24mm/2.8 AIS and 28mm/2.0 AIS. The Nikon 52mm cap (snap-on or pinch type) fits onto the inner circumference. I found the 72mm snap-on cap not a very good fit over the outer circumference. Haven't tried the 72mm pinch type cap to see if there is any difference. Protects both lenses from physical damage.

      This is a great hood for a wide angle lens. I use hoods to protect front glass of the lens when I don't use a filter and this little hood is great. Nice sturdy feel.

      Screws in nicely to front of lens, just as it did back in the 1960s and 70s, in the days before lens makers supplied bayonet lens hoods with their lenses.

        I ordered this for the Nikon 24mm f2.8, which is really prone to lens flare, and it really helped. It did get dented on the first use though.

        Pretty good lens hood, does what it should and blocks out flare. I'm not a fan of the screw attachement (it means I have to unscrew it to add/subtract filters). But its the only one I could use for the 24mm so not a lot of choice.

          Well made original Nikon item….more for protecting the front lens element as I do not use a protective filter unless I need to do so.

              Comments about Nikon HN-1 Lens Hood:

              It's moderately difficult to screw on in as far as the threads are tiny and difficult to align. Once you fumble around enough to get the threads catching though it screws on easily. It's a little wider than I thought it would be considering the size of the lens and compared to other lenses and lens hoods I have. So a hair bulkier than I thought it would be. It's metal so I expect it to last. It didn't really strike me as either heavy nor light.

                      -Great protection for the lens as well
                      -Lens covers will work on the outside without removal of hood.

                          The optional Nikon 72mm Snap-On Lens Cap does not fit snuggly to this hood, even though the hood is made of metal.

                          Would have been nice if it did, as it would have prevented dust from accumulating on the inside of the hood, and easier to snap on/off.

                          I returned mine within an hour of purchase after multiple attempts to attached it with a perfect fit.

                          Btw, on a side note, the 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap does fit perfectly on the metal HN-23 hood. A must have.

                              I am using this with Nikkor AF 24mm f/2.8, and keeping it permanently attached, except when using the filter mentioned below.

                              Positives:
                              - Metal construction.
                              - Screw-in type.

                              Negatives:
                              - Seems too narrow, but I'm sure the Nikon engineers knew what they were doing when they designed it.
                              - CANNOT BE USED with Nikon Circular Polarizer II 52mm attached to above lens, as it will cause vignetting, based on Nikon's instruction manual for the CP-II filter.

                                Provides some protection, but not a must have.

                                For the price, its ok to have it!

                                  The good--over the years, I've learned to stay with Nikon accessories for my Nikon cameras / lenses. I've also, although it is not always recommended, put hoods and protective filters (preferably Nikon NC) on my lenses.
                                  The bad--I prefer hoods that can be reversed and stored on the lens. This hood cannot.
                                  Not ugly--I like it. It is what it is. I have no complaints

                                    Used it with my 24mm/2.8 AIS and 28mm/2.0 AIS. The Nikon 52mm cap (snap-on or pinch type) fits onto the inner circumference. I found the 72mm snap-on cap not a very good fit over the outer circumference. Haven't tried the 72mm pinch type cap to see if there is any difference. Protects both lenses from physical damage.

                                      Great hood! Could be used with either Nikon 52mm or Nikon 72mm lens cap (either snap-on older design or new design pinch-type).
