    I use this hood with my zoom lens and it works very well. It is easy to snap on and off the lens and can be stored upside down on the lens when not in use.
    The lens hood that came with the lens and camera, fell apart after about 2 months use. Tried to fix it, but wouldn't hold together.

    I have a camera backpack and I was surprised the the weight of my Nikon D800 pack in the backpack with a 1/4 inch of foam between the Nikon D800 and the Nikon 3200 with the 55-300 a telephoto lens and lens hood that the weight of the D800 broke the Lens Hood for the 55-300.

            The older style lens hood is more durable than the snap on, but since it is the only one that fits this particular lens it is more than adequate.

            With zero wear and tear I already have to replace it. The springs/ wire thing started to pop out for no reason after only 3 weeks!

                I have replaced this lens hood three times and glued it back together several times also. Calls to Nikon get no results. It falls apart with no abuse at all.
                Wish there was an after market product that would works on the 55-300 mm lens.

                  I broke my lens hood when I tripped and fell. This replacement hood was shipped quickly and was exactly what I needed to continue to shade my lens when shooting photos.

                                  It is the worst piece of equipment to ever bear the name, Nikon should seriously relook at its design. The fisrt hood I had fell apart after a few months whilst out in the field, I was stupid enough to buy another one and it promptly broke again after a month. Used superglue to fix it back but I'm handling it as gingerly as I would my expensive 135mm DC, but I have no doubt it will break again soon.

                                        Mine broke when I was simply taking the lens out of my camera bag...fell into several pieces...horrible design. It needs to be threaded like all the other lens hoods...that way they don't just fall off, like this one does.

                                                  Unlike the others that have posted their review of this lens hood, I have not had any problems. There are tabs on the side of the hood for easy/quick release. Unless I have have an "updated" version of this hood, its pretty solid, compared to other lens hoods I have seen. I keep the hood attached to my lens, and can have quick/easy access to it, if and when I need it.

                                                        Poorly constructed and poorly engineered.
                                                        Do Not Buy this product. It comes with the Nikkor 55-300mm lens.
                                                        I can't believe this is made by Nikkor.

                                                                This is the second time I have bought this product. Detaches too easily and is fragile. I prefer the construction of the hood that I have for my 18-200mm lens.
