Nikon HB-35 Lens Hood (Bayonet) for 18-200mm AF-S Lens USA

You Pay: $15.95

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.

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.

Insurance Against Damage to Lens

My wife & I were recently on vacation in Scotland. I had my Nikon D-90 around my neck. The lens was the 18-200 VR Zoom. When we left the hotel in the morning, the day was very overcast and I didn't thnk I would need the Lens Hood and thought about leaving the hood in the room. However, I went ahead and attached it to the lens for the day.
Well, toward the end of the day, I tripped on a curb as I was beginning to cross a street. The next thing I knew was I was falling and the camera and lens were going to hit the concrete street and curb. As it hit the pavement, I heard the awful sound of cracking plastic! I just knew the lens and camera were going to be damaged and I would not have the use of the camera for the entire 2-week vacation.
I have become a believer and feel the Lens Hood is a great protector for the camera and lens. The lens hood absorbed all of the blow on the concrete and the camera and lens were not harmed. Actually, I was still able to use the hood for the remainder of the vacation, even though it suffered damage. This new hood replaces the broken one.
I will never leave the hood off of the camera unless I am taking flash photos.

While I use it all the time, it does have the annoying habit of falling off the lens while I carry it on my shoulder. When stored reversed (i.e. on the lens facing towards the camera - the only way the hood doesn't disengage on its own), it eliminates access to the zoom ring so spontaneous shooting is almost impossible - you have to unscrew it, reverse it then lock it back on the lens before you can shoot. As I said, annoying.

                  Thanks again.

                        As usual, this OEM Nikon lens hood stays on the lens as intended, as opposed to the aftermarket one which I saved ( wasted ) a few bucks on and fell off constantly.

                            I broke the lens hood that came with my lens bought a couple years ago. I had problems with it staying on which consequentially broke it. When I ordered the new hood, I had the expectation of the same, but was pleasantly pleased to find that it fit better than the original one. I love this one and will buy another if ever needed.
