      Dear B&H,

      Ok, I like so many others am sure have lost my camera lens hood. I found myself depressed when I checked out several websites and in store prices for a replacement.

      Other sites cost more then I was able to afford at that time, or sold only off brand items and or, it wasn't the right hood for my lens. One website took me hours to even find the hood and it was still too expensive. I thought it was going to be a lost cause. Then I thought about B&H! So I looked it up and it was easy to search for (28-300 Nikon lens hood).

      The right brand, the right hood, as well as half cost of the other websites. The best part of the story was; Three days after I received my new hood in the mail, a friend called me up stating that I had left my original lens hood at his house. Now I have a spare that I didn't over pay for.

      Thank you B&H.

      Sincerely,

      I broke down and bought this as a replacement after trying other, more robust alternative lens hoods for the fabulous Nikon 28-300mm lens.

      Everything else I tried vignetted at the wide angle side of the zoom. So the optical engineering of this hood is right.

      What is wrong is the flimsy grasping teeth of the hood to the lens. It is easy to bump the hood while the hood is attached to the lens and have one or more teeth chip off. As a result, the hood now more-or-less stays on the lens, but too often goes rolling off on to the ground or wherever, and thereby cheapening the overall experience of a truly remarkable lens.

      On top of that, this lens hood is expensive no matter where you buy it and often it's out of stock.

      But so far, this hood is the best solution for this particular lens. Just be extra careful with your lens when you have this hood attached!

          Bought this as a replacement to the one that came with the lens. That's the only reason I don't give it five stars -- I just wish it were more durable. I've shot with the lens hood on all my shots with the lens. It does the job, and conveniently reverses and collapses to nothing when I'm not shooting. It's light weight and tough. It

                I recently purchased a used nikkor 28-300 lens for my d600 and the particular lens that I purchased didn't come with a lens hood. When I got this lens hood in the mail it fit perfectly and it looks and works great.

                Had to replace my hood because it was knocked off when riding an elephant - it fell into a river in Thailand, and I wasn't in a position to dive in and retrieve it. As others have noted, while it's OEM, it does not stay locked in place well.

                    I lost mine in a crowed market overseas. I am surprised how much it cost when search online.B&H is cheaper than [*] sellers. I have difficult time shooting night shot without it, too much glare on the lens. So I ordered one oneline before I return home.

                    I bought the 28-300 VR DX lens which as usual is a great product that I am very pleased with, however the lens hood that comes with Nikon products is made from a brittle plastic that cracks if you breath near it! It also has specially designed holes in the side to weaken an already poorly designed product.
                    For the life of me I cannot understand why they don`t make the lens hoods from nylon or hard rubber or is it too much to ask that a FX lens and accessories can stand up to being placed in a camera bag!! the same thing has happened on 2 of my 4 Nikon Lenses and at $20-30 each it gets old!!

                                What can I say. It's plastic, works by protecting the front end, and relatively affordable. Mine locks into place very well. The old one just didn't hold up to my 15 year old stepping on it.

                                              Dear B&H,

                                              Ok, I like so many others am sure have lost my camera lens hood. I found myself depressed when I checked out several websites and in store prices for a replacement.

                                              Other sites cost more then I was able to afford at that time, or sold only off brand items and or, it wasn't the right hood for my lens. One website took me hours to even find the hood and it was still too expensive. I thought it was going to be a lost cause. Then I thought about B&H! So I looked it up and it was easy to search for (28-300 Nikon lens hood).

                                              The right brand, the right hood, as well as half cost of the other websites. The best part of the story was; Three days after I received my new hood in the mail, a friend called me up stating that I had left my original lens hood at his house. Now I have a spare that I didn't over pay for.

                                              Thank you B&H.

                                              Sincerely,
                                              Joseph A. Williams

                                                  Reduces lens flare caused by stray light from the sun or stadium lights. Also helps protect the lens from damage.

                                                  Comments about Nikon HB-50 Bayonet Lens Hood for 28-300mm Lens:

                                                  I broke down and bought this as a replacement after trying other, more robust alternative lens hoods for the fabulous Nikon 28-300mm lens.

                                                  Everything else I tried vignetted at the wide angle side of the zoom. So the optical engineering of this hood is right.

                                                  What is wrong is the flimsy grasping teeth of the hood to the lens. It is easy to bump the hood while the hood is attached to the lens and have one or more teeth chip off. As a result, the hood now more-or-less stays on the lens, but too often goes rolling off on to the ground or wherever, and thereby cheapening the overall experience of a truly remarkable lens.

                                                  On top of that, this lens hood is expensive no matter where you buy it and often it's out of stock.

                                                  But so far, this hood is the best solution for this particular lens. Just be extra careful with your lens when you have this hood attached!

                                                        A lens hood is a lens hood; right? This replacement for the original - which I admit I clumsily broke - is better than the one which came with the lens, but still not quite right. The original was much looser fitting than it should have been. So much so, that it was easily dislodged. This one is a bit tighter, but still not quite right.
