Tamron DA18 Lens Hood for 18-250mm & 18-270mm PZD Lenses

You Pay: $15.95
Product Highlights
  • For 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II LD Lens
  • For 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II PZD Lens

The dedicated Tamron DA18 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II LD lens and the 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II PZD lens. This lens hood does not fit the older version of the 18-270mm lens (AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC LD Aspherical (IF) Macro 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.

          This fits like the original lens hood. The old one was cracked when the camera, in it's case, fell to the floor. The lens hood took the brunt of the fall and nothing else was damaged.

                  Maybe it was supposed to fit our lens but it was big enough to go right over it.

                    Comments about Tamron DA18 Lens Hood for 18-250mm & 18-270mm PZD Lenses:

                    Recently, I knocked over my tripod with a Tamron 18-270mm Zoom attached to my camera. The hood broke, BUT the lens and camera were not damaged. I make a practice of always using a lens hood (with rare exceptions) and this practice saved me from serious lens damage. I was inside and it fell on a hard floor. The lens hood lessened the impact and saved the rest of my equipment.

                          It's the same hood as the original that came with the lens (which my dog ate). Not much to review. Just glad BH finally got it in stock so I could replace my dog-chewed one.

                                            I was very happy that B&H could get me the replacement lens hood for my 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II LD Lens by Tamron. The original that came with the lens broke in 3 pieces when lens was bumped against a counter.
