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 hood works as it should. Getting it attached is tough and you can't have it on with the lens cap on. The threads are very tight and secure--possibly too tight as it might be a problem of stripping them, but so far so good.

        I use this on my 85/1.4D
        smaller than the stock hood
        but performs just as well

        easier to fit in the bag and fits the overall look of the old metal monster

        Comments about Nikon HN-28 Lens Hood (77mm Screw-In) for 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF Lens:

        I got this product to replace the one that didn't come with the 80-200 that I received. It works like the OEM hood and I have the same complaint as others that I can't have the lens cap on at the same time the hood is on. Slightly annoying but I won't have any glare in my shots now so I can't complain to much!

            I am a photojournalist and push my equipment to its limits often. Cheap lens hoods have always broken. Metal hoods are by far the best. This is perfect for my old, trusty lens which I've had for nearly 20 years. B&H's service is almost always perfect, too!

                  There may be a use where this product exceeds the HB-7 bayonet mount but I can't think of it. I only bought it because B&H was of of stock on the HB-7. When I received the HN-28 I screwed it on and figured out you couldn't put the lens cap on with the hood in place. I unscrewed the hood, put it back in the box and returned it. The HB-7 is far superior - it can be stored on the lens by installing it backwards, very fast to install, you can use the lens cap with it and it is 25%-30% cheaper.

                                Hate that I had to buy a hood and it wasn't supplied with the lens. Also kinda wish it was quick-release instead of screw-in, but it does its job and works well.

                                    Comments about Nikon HN-28 Lens Hood (77mm Screw-In) for 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF Lens:

                                    I purchased this to replace the clip on butterfly hood that comes stock with the 70-200 AF-S lens.

                                    I prefer a screw in hood for event photography, as the stock hood has a tendency to come unlatched after brushing against, well, pretty much anything. This stays in place securely, and gives excellent protection against bumps and such.

                                    The second reason for replacing the stock hood with a screw in hood is that it then becomes easy to use a polarizing filter with the hood attached, something that's pretty much impossible with the stock clip on hoods.

                                    This lens hood is all metal, not any plastic. Holds up well to abuse. I only wish it had a quick mount instead of a screw in.

                                      The 80-200 lens does not come with any hood, for some reason. I bought HN-28 together with the lens, and I am very happy with the purchase. Serves both as a protector for the lens front element and helps reduce flare.

                                        As with all lenses you need a lens hood. I got the lens but did not buy the hood at the time. If you buy the lens (Nikon 80-200 2.8) go ahead and spend the money and get the lens hood. You will need it.

                                        I finally had to buy a replacement hood for my 80-200mm. I finally bent it really good. I've had the original for about 10 years. The replacement will work just fine, as long as I don't run into another videographer again. Just glad B&H carried this item.
