Nikon HB-34 Bayonet Lens Hood USA

You Pay: $12.95
Product Highlights
  • For 55-200mm DX Lenses

The Nikon HB-34 Lens Hood is primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens, plus prevent vignetting when shooting at wide angle. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

    What can you say?

    By Ben

    Comments about Nikon HB-34 Bayonet Lens Hood:

    It's a Nikon product, it fits the lens correctly, it doesn't pop off unless I don't put it on right, it shades the lens like it's supposed to. Priced higher than other solutions but it's Nikon quality.

    Comments about Nikon HB-34 Bayonet Lens Hood:

    The only time I remove my new hood I bought is when I have to store my camera back into the bag. I flip opposite and snapped back on to store it back into my bag, when I'm done shooting for the day. It's an awesome hood:) Yes I would recommend this hood. 10+

    Fits 55-200 VR perfectly

    By Jeff

    from Boston

    Comments about Nikon HB-34 Bayonet Lens Hood:

    I put this on my 55-200 VR and it fits perfectly. Doesn't screw on in reverse for storage though since the barrel is too fat.

      Sleek design, easy to attach to lens

      I busted the ring for the original (HB-37) lens hood that came with my 55-200mm, so I purchased this, nice addition to the lens.

                It attaches to my Nikon 55mm-200mm lens. Heavier than i thought it would be. Sometimes gets stiff and is hard to take off. It will one day hopefully save my lens.

                      Love the bayonet. Protects the outside of the lens, deflects the light, and looks much cooler than the flat hoot that came with my telephoto. Great value too.

                                  I use the hood on very sunny days to keep the glare of the sun off the lens. One great thing about the hood is that it can be turned around when not needed and screwed back on to the lens for safe keeping, freeing up your hands in those split second moments of shooting. The one thing that then becomes a problem is it blocks my ability to manually focus the lens.
