What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

The dedicated Vello HB-7 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF 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 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.

    This lens hood is the replacement for a missing Nikon hood. The hood fit over the lens and its' placement is as snug as its Nikon's counterpart.

    I like the feel and the lack of added weight.
    The cost is right as well. A good replacement for the cost.

    This is just an okay lens hood. It does not attach in "reverse" to allow for a quick switch when you are in a situation where you need a lens hood. Instead you have to pack it away everytime you are not using it.

        There's not a whole lot to say about a lens hood. It works as expected. It is fairly snug.

        By Eric

        Comments about Vello HB-7 Dedicated Lens Hood:

        Works very well and is much less expensive than the Nikon brand hood. Bayonets on and can be stored backwards over the lense with the lens cap on. Would definitely recommend.

            Purchased to use with the 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF Lens. Not sure why but Nikon doesn't include a hood with this lens. Does what it's supposed to.

                Comments about Vello HB-7 Dedicated Lens Hood:

                The HB-7 lens hood by vello works just as good as my other nikon lens hood. What sold me on it was its price. I'm always looking for a better deal when it comes to my equipment knowing I am going to have to upgrade every other year. The thing about this hood is that it protects from lens flare along with all the other problems you run into with a naked lens. But the best thing about it has to be that it can take a beating. VERY STURDY! If you are looking for something to save a few bucks I would say buy the Vello and save $ dollars and get the same use. The only thing you have to watch out for is making sure you twist it on right. It can be a little tricky at times.

                      for the price, it keeps stray light off the lens.
                      it's no matte box, and once i can afford a nice matte box i will probably never use this again, but in the meantime it works great and does it's job.

                                  I bought this for use on my 80-200 f/2.8 AF lens (the push pull) and it fits perfectly. A friend has the Nikon version of this hood and while the outer finish matches the lens better, the Vello hood feels like its made of the same material. I would recommend is over the Nikon any day. Less expensive and it does the job.

                                        Not too much you can say about a lens hood. I didn't want to spring for the pricier Nikon one, I bought this one at the same time I bought the lens. Very durable. Only issues I have is that it can be hard to get on the lens (almost like it is a tad too small), and you can't reverse it for storage.

                                            I bought this because I dropped my camera bag, shattered the original and the Nikon replacement wasn't in stock.

                                            +'s The unit looks good on the lens and should provide the same protection that saved my lens last drop. It fits snug once you get it lined up.

                                            -'s The color and texture are not a PERFECT match but close enough that it will go unnoticed by everyone but Nikon experts. If you can live with a little inperfection, or a hood that says "For Nikon" instead of "Nikon" this will do the trick.

                                            The alignment doesn't twist on perfect, but once it's on it's snug and will work well.

                                            For half the price of Nikon's lens hood its an awesome buy. I'm extremely happy with it. It's a little tough to attach but who cares if it does what I bought it for right?

                                                  It was a tad too small and wouldn't fit over the lens. I ended up [...] getting the Nikon HB-7 hood which fit perfectly.
