This dedicated Voigtlander LH-6 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the Nokton 35mm and 40mm f/1.4 lenses.

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. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

        Comments about Voigtlander LH-6 Lens Hood for 35mm f/1.4 & 40mm f/1.4 Nokton Lens:

        I purchased a Zeiss 35mm f/2 Biogon and the Zeiss lens shade. The lens was delivered but the shade was b/o without date. I read here that this shade was identical to the Zeiss (except for the name). I tried it out and it is true...this is an exact duplicate of the Zeiss and it is $ cheaper (and it was in stock). It fits perfectly, provides shade and protection for the Zeiss lens and it is vented so that it makes almost no intrusion into the rangefinder field of view. Highly recommended accessory for the lenses that it fits...all of them.

            Comments about Voigtlander LH-6 Lens Hood for 35mm f/1.4 & 40mm f/1.4 Nokton Lens:

            This has been a pleasant surprise. I expected just a simple, metal, vented lens hood. What I received has been a delightful surprise of skilled craftsmanship.The hood itself is easy to install, with guide lines to mark where to place the lens hood on the lens bayonet mount properly. A simple twist locks it firmly in place, and a simple twist removes it. Firm enough to keep it secure, but loose enough that it's not a challenge to remove.Another little detail that I noticed is that this is actually a two part hood. Upon inspection you'll notice that the flare of the hood is attached to the barrel via screws. I can see this being especially handy if the hood needs to be removed for damage, but it also ensures that the vents line up perfectly. After a couple of days of use I no longer notice any intrusion in the rangefinder of my Leica, and even when I first attached it the obstruction was so minimal it had no effect on how I shoot.

              The hood is a bayonet that maintains itself well allowing filter and lens caps to be used and it never budges. I'm a clumsy bumping soul so I need to protect my glass from self-inflicted disaster.
              I recommend this hood for its strength and fit.

                    This hood fits nicely on the slotted grooves on the outside of the lens barrel. It can be removed and attached independantly of any lens filters and lens cap. Very well made hood indeed! A must for those wanting a lens hood! Same as the Zeiss hood but different engraving.

                    Very well made. Keeps my 40mm nokton safe from lens flare and allows me to walk around without a lens cap. The original lens cap fits while this hood is on btw. All metal construction is top notch. Worth the premium price.

                      This is a well made metal lens hood for the described Voigtlander lenses. It also fits my Zeiss ZM 50mm lens as well so I am saved from having to get another hood. It is also less 'expensive' than the Zeiss equivalent. If I intend to keep my Voigtlander for a long time then this is a bargain over other plastic types. My 2 Cents.

                          It fits perfectly, but when I reverse it, it fits but does not actually attach with the bayonet. So I have to be careful when I take my camera out of it's case. I have a similar hood for a Leica lens which does fit securely when reversed. I know that's a bit nitpicky and I'm not sending it back. hence the 4 stars

                            This lens shade is the exact same one as the Zeiss version for my Zeiss Planar 50 f2.0
                            The only difference is one has the word Zeiss on it, the other Voigtlander.
                            Quite possibly the best lens hood I've ever used. Spring loaded bayonet mechanism for instant, but secure, on and off. Better than any of my detachable Leica hoods. Highly recommended -plus it cleans up that unfinished chrome ring look on the front of Zeiss an Voigtlander lenses.

                                  Not much to say, well made hood. Nice and light.

                                  As a plus, it works perfectly on the Zeiss ZM 50/2 (besides the lettering it looks Exactly the same as the Zeiss hood)

                                    Handsome, elegant, good design, well made.
                                    Why not include it when you sell the lens?

                                        Vented so that there is almost no viewer occlusion.
