What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

The dedicated Vello HB-29 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 70-200mm f/2.8 G-AFS Lens.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Moreover, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. And 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. The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens.
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light.
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements.

      I was devastated when I fell and broke the lens hood on my 70 -200mm Nikon lens, but to my great relief B & H offered both the OEM version as well as an after market lens as replacements. The latter being around 50% of the OEM price (and the one that I ordered). [...] Amazingly, the lens hood was a perfect replacement in the fit, the look, and the quality. The LHN-HB29 Lens Hood is a great buy and at half the price as the OEM you can't beat it.

      I was appalled at the idea of paying $50 to replace my lens hood and after reading the reviews decided to go with the off brand at a third the price. I got it, it works, but it was a real bear to get on the first time and really doesn't compare. If I had it to do over again I would buy the Nikon version.

        Comments about Vello HB-29 Dedicated Lens Hood:

        I purchased this lens hood to replace a broken Nikon part. After using it several times in various lighting conditions it seems to work as well as the original in both lens protection and keeping unwanted side light away from the lens.

                      4 Stars b/c the release knob(the same as in Nikon hood) could be lowered in to avoid accidental release and lose. Potential New Sale.

                        My Nikon hood broke and would not stay in place reliably. After checking the price for a new Nikon replacement, I decided to try the Pearlstone.[...] fit the lens well. Although it's a wee bit loose, it stays on when I want it to. I'm happy,

                        After reading some reviews someone said that this would fit the Nikon 20-200mm. It does not! I got it to fit but upside down and it is very hard to do!
                        Being upside down it cannot drain water in the rain. I really need to replace it but the stock one that Nikon makes is too short for the late afternoon shots toward the sun.

                                Lost my original Nikon hood during a night shoot and so I found myself in need of a replacement. I bought the Pearson brand after seeing the price difference between the original Nikon branded product the one by Pearson and I'm glad I gave it shot. Can't tell the difference between the two except for how it's labeled.
