What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

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.

The Nikon HN-23's inner surface nearest your lens' filter thread is beveled and does not directly accept a 62mm lens cap.  However, a 77mm lenscap fits nicely into the inside diameter of the front of the hood.

    My Nikon 35-70 came with no hood, bought second-hand. I had heard that the 35-70 flares easily, and indeed that was the case. So the lens hood was a necessity, and the HN-23 seemed to be a common choice for many people. So, I went ahead and ordered one for myself also, and so far quite happy.

    I used to always buy the cheapo rubber hoods, which did help with the light flares. But, they eventually ripped and offered no protection for those inevitable times when you accidentally whack the lens against some unyielding surface.
    This metal hood is the perfect protection from flare AND the occasional bump.

      Comments about Nikon HN-23 Lens Hood:

      Purchased the HN-23 Lens Hood as a replacement for one I had improvised for my 80-200 f4 AI-S Nikkor years ago, which was heavier and by now banged up and down to bare metal on its rim. Good service from B&H brought the new one in a jiff and now the lens has its proper companion, which is deeper and does a better job.

                    I bought this for a Ukrainian Arax 80/2.8 TS lens. The lens has a real propensity to flare and this is the perfect solution. Cuts the flare and doesn't vignette (D7000). I just wish it was as easy to use as the newer bayonet hoods (gotten spoiled).

                              I always use a hood on all lenses; this provides protection and helps prevent stray light from striking front lens element.

                              I work in engineering photography and lenses are subject to damage from field conditions on construction sites (dams - tunnels - concrete structures).

                                  Just shot into the sun with my new lens hood and the photos came out great! It sure beats the rubber hood I have been using!

                                    Comments about Nikon HN-23 Lens Hood:

                                    My Nikon 35-70 came with no hood, bought second-hand. I had heard that the 35-70 flares easily, and indeed that was the case. So the lens hood was a necessity, and the HN-23 seemed to be a common choice for many people. So, I went ahead and ordered one for myself also, and so far quite happy.
