This dedicated Zeiss Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar 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.

          Comments about Zeiss Lens Hood for 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar ZM Lens:

          Really great hood. All metal high quality. Fastens securely. I'm using with the Sonnar lens and an M6. You can see it in the lower right corner of the veiwfinder if you look. Doesn't interfere with composing. You may change filters and put the lens cap on/off with the hood mounted.

              Comments about Zeiss Lens Hood for 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar ZM Lens:

              Many people complain that the Zeiss lens hoods are too expensive and should be included with a lens purchase anyway. While I can't disagree, it should be noted that the Zeiss M mount lenses are substantially cheaper than the Leica offerings while maintaining excellent quality. The extra amount for the lens hood isn't a big deal. Zeiss hoods are top quality and the benefits are obvious. Yes, worth the money.

                  Works well and looks great, but it should really come bundled with the Sonnar lens -- hence the 4 stars.

                        Comments about Zeiss Lens Hood for 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar ZM Lens:

                        This lens is best used by those who are Bokeh aware. For me, an image, whether it be a watercolor, pastel or oil, consists not only of the primary subject but the background as well. Both must be crafted. This lens will give you beautifully rendered out of focus distant lights or hi-lites. If you want bright objects or colored lights in your background, it's either this lens or the Summilux. Front focusing is a characteristic of this lens so this too must be managed intelligently. Having said that, perfect focus is rarely the point of a dramatic image. Enjoy, I finally bought this lens after taking the most cherished images of my friends and family in available low-light, at which it excels.

                              Comments about Zeiss Lens Hood for 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar ZM Lens:

                              This hood is built like a rock, but it's really light and fits just perfect.

                              it detaches perfectly too. Just press a bit on to the lens and twist it. It feels great.

                              When in use, the perforations help greatly to minimize finder blockage.

                              I'm glad I bought it.
