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 is inexpensive, comes well packaged, is lightweight, of good quality, and fits perfectly.Only downside to this hood, as with any hood that fits onto the lens body instead of the into the lens's filter thread, is that you cannot access the filter without removing the hood first.This is important, in part, if you use a rotating filter like a polarizer, or a graduated filter.Also, if you use a step up ring to facilitate use of a larger-diameter filter (say, 67mm to 72mm), you will not be able to remove the hood without first removing the filter.This isn't a defect of the hood, but rather an issue of lens design: The hood should snap into the filter threads on the front of the lens.

                                This hood works fine and is half the cost of the Nikon version. I would give it 5 stars but when stored on the lens reversed it has come loose a couple of times so doesn't seem to snug down as well as it might. I should mention that is seems to lock into place firmly in the "use" position forward.

                                  This hood is hard to differentiate from the original Nikon hood except for the price. It's one of those accessories for which it is hard to justify paying Nikon's inflated price. Meets my needs and my budget well.

                                    Great product that is reasonably priced that helps to cut down on sun glare.

                                        I have this mounted on Nikon D5300 with the 18-140mm kit lens. Tried shooting at various zoom levels and the hood doesn't get in the way (as is expected). And it costs almost half of the official hood from Nikon ($ vs $).

                                          Good fit for my Nikkor 18-105mm lenses. Material feels little bit softer from the previos one i get with lenses, but maybe that even good. Old one just split once to two parts.
