Vello HN-22 Dedicated Lens Hood $22.50
You Pay: $31.95

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 HN-22 Lens Hood:

      Purchased to replace a petal-shaped plastic hood supplied with Fuji lens. The Nikon hood is shallower and packs better, but isn't as high performance as the petal hood. The threads bind a bit to my B+W brass filter, so sometimes when removing the hood, the filter comes off with it.

          Comments about Nikon HN-22 Lens Hood:

          The HN-22 is a must have for your Nikon lens, I use mine on a Nikon 60mm f/2.8D Micro lens to help reduce flare and ghosting, this is a metal lens hood (screw on) so its durable and gives extra protection to the front of your lens as well as blocking out excess light. The HN-22 Lens Hood is a must have for any of the lens it was designed for.

            I use this hood on my Tamron AD2 35-80mm f/2.8-3.8 lens. It greatly reduces flare and ghosting and improves contrast. The front of the hood takes 82mm lens cap that make this screw-in hood much easier to handle in the field.

                A must have for your lenses. Don't want to ruin good shots just because of a little glare.

                This is a metal screw on hood, so it's durable. Like most of the screw on hoods, it sometimes get stuck, but that's normal and doesn't ruin the quality.

                      Comments about Nikon HN-22 Lens Hood:

                      As the headline reads, this lens hood was exactly what my 60mm f/2.8 micro lens was lacking. Because I use my lens less for macro photography and more for portraits, I found that while pointing it straight at a subject, the sun would cause a haze-effect to appear on my photos. Generally, I would counter this by shading the lens with my hand or baseball cap. Along comes the lens hood -- what a life saver!

                      This lens hood is solid, exactly what I expected from a Nikon product. While it is a screw-on type, the threads were very smooth and gripped the lens threads with ease (I've had trouble with other brands in the past).

                      Cons: none -- I absolutely love this product!
