Product Highlights
  • For Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR and 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED Lenses

The dedicated Vello HB-32 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR and 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED Lenses.

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.

                  It's about half the cost of the Nikon and feels like it but works just fine. Spins on smooth and locks snug.

                    Comments about Vello HB-32 Dedicated Lens Hood:

                    I bought this as a replacement for the 18-135mm Nikon lens I bought that did not come with a lens hood. Snaps right into place, slides on and off very easily, and isn't too tight a fit where it takes some elbow grease to turn, risking damage to the lens itself. Simple product, but perfect!

                          B&H Customer Service is very helpful. I wanted to get the Nikon Brand but customer service told me that this was cheaper and as good as the Nikon Brand. They were correct. I said to [@] CAMERA customer service " Why you all don't behave like B&H? In an angry tone she said to me " Then take your business to B&H. B&H is the best.

                            I was disappointed that my Nikon 18-140 didn't come with a lens hood. I was also paranoid about my new glass bumping into something so this lens hood was added to my wish list. Works well, minds its own business and stays on nicely.

                              I leave this on all the time, providing extra protection for my lens. More compact than some others I have had in the past. Costs much less that the Nikon lens hood. It feels sturdy but doesn't weigh much.
