Nikon HB-40 Bayonet Lens Hood for AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED USA

You Pay: $29.95

The dedicated Nikon HB-40 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the AF-S Zoom Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens.

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.

        I'ts the real deal. My original lens hood is a little banged up from event photography. Decided it was time to get a new one as a back up just in case.

        Good tool for both glare prevention AND protection. This particular lens hood has protected my 24-70mm from damage twice! :)

          Bought the lens on CL. The guy forgot the hood! Bought from B&H arrived on the day I needed. Works great.

            Comments about Nikon HB-40 Bayonet Lens Hood for AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED:

            I was out on a photo shoot taking pictures of a horse. The horse was in the exercise pen and I was standing outside of the railings but had my lens just inside the ring in order to get unobstructed shots of the horse as it was circling within the pen. I really didn't think the I was in any danger with the horse but apparently the horse did not like the camera pointing at her. After several circles around the pen, the horse did one quick kick and hit my camera. She knocked the camera out of my grip but at least I had it strapped around my neck. I had my 24-70mm f2.8 lens on my camera at the time and was afraid to look at the damage. The Nikon lens hood was cracked along one side from rim to threaded edge. My lens was still perfect. I will stay with the Nikon lens hood and not go with generic because I am not sure if a generic would have saved my lens or not. I won't take that chance. Pay a few dollars more on the Nikon lens hood and know it can withstand a horse kick.

              It's that simple, I cannot go without a hood! I would not mess with "made for" imitations, get the real deal and get better photos.

                I was carrying my D800 with Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 on my side on my Blackrapid strap when I slipped on Ice. The stock Nikon lens hood took the blow and ended up asorbing the load by breaking the plastic mechanism where it locks onto the lens. In otherwords, $5,000 saved at the cost of only a new lens hood. Nikon makes strong Pro gear. No way was I not going OEM on its replacement. And by always using the lens hood I didn't bust up an expensive lens.

                    I dropped my D700 with my 24-70mm on it and my lens was saved because of the hood. The hood needed to be replaced, though. I purchased the cheap Pearson version and it broke in 15 seconds. I should have just bought the Nikon version and saved myself the hassle. Learn from my mistake.

                      I slipped and fell in the Adirondacks, had a Nikon D700 with my 24-70 f2.8 in my hand. Camera and lens were slammed down very hard the lens hood was cracked in half and the mounting mechanism broken as well. The smashed lens hood was just hanging from the lens and I was expecting the worst. The happy ending was the camera and lens were fine, not a mark on either and both continued to work great. That lens hood took all the shock and force of the fall and saved my favorite camera and lens!! So glad I had it on the lens, be sure to use yours it could save the day for you too!

                            Some might say it's an OEM replacement. But it definitely doesn't have the same finish to it. It's not a smooth and shiny finish like the OEM one. Other than that, it's a great replacement! And I agree with others, this hood has saved my lens from a number of accidents!

                                The reason I purchased this product (hood) was that I dropped the lens it was attached to. The lens was not secured to the camera body... The camera would not focus. When I turned the lens toward my face to see what was causing the malfunction, the lens fell off. The lens hit the floor by landing on one side of the front edge of the hood. The hood broke but the lens was unharmed. I don't know if that was "luck" or that the designers considered such "non-diligent care" when they designed it.

                                As for the normal function of this hood... it goes on and off the lens smoothly, stays in place where you put it and does a great job of keeping stray light out of the lens.

                                I will buy it again if I need to, but I would rather not test it again this way!

                                    This is an original Nikon hood. It is a great product if you want to replace your old hood. I use mine on Nikkor 24-70mm lens.

                                            I am not the kindest person to my camera gear. I try to be but the reality is it lives a tough life. I have had my Nikon D300 plus 24-70mm lens fall from the seat of our Chevy Tahoe and from the hight of a tall bed and land directly on the lens hood. The lens hood saved my lens and camera. Finally after 4 or 5 pretty bad falls the plastic cracked and I am now purchasing a replacement. This is cheep insurance for my equipment. Plus its a pretty good sun shade.

                                            Received a hood with the lens but.....On a trip to Alaska my lens rolled off a small table on a small boat and apparently hit the floor on the lens hood. It broke the sleeve on the hood, but the lens survived.
                                            While it has been a little bulky, I have purchased another and I will be using regularily. I have not tested its glare reducing capabilities, but have not seen any glare in my photos. I used this lens about 90% of the time. It is worth the weight and bulkyness.

                                              This lens hood reduces the stray light that can cause image problems when you use the new 2x converter on a 70-200mm lens

                                                Got this lens hood as a replacement for the original HB-40 that came with the 24-70. Was shooting on a steep mountainside when the gravel beneath the tripod gave way and the whole setup (and myself) fell a ways down. The camera hit solid rock, landing on the hood. The hood got a crack and some plastic broke, but it saved the glass even with the 5m meter fall onto rock. It does a great job of blocking flare too.
