The Vello 77mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II) is designed to fit lenses with a 77mm filter thread. The hood is designed for use with internal focus type zoom lenses. When used with "full frame" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 20mm. With "APS-C" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 15mm. With wider lenses, especially on full frame cameras, some slight vignetting might occur.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage with the minimum amount of weight and hood area. In addition, the design of this hood allows it to be reversed and stored on the lens, when not in use. It is also designed to accept lens caps. 

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens, by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

      Well made, but causes vignetting at 24mm

          Comments about Vello 77mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II):

          I bought this as an alternative to the Nikon HB-63 for my 24-85mm Nikon lens on FX, so that I could have a 72-77mm adapter ring attached to the lens. It's not wide enough - vignettes at the corners at 24mm wide. I don't think this is because of the adaptor - presumably it should also work with a UV filter, which would cause a similar offset. For the price, I'm going to try cutting the corners back a little, but it's not optimal.

          Comments about Vello 77mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II):

          Purchased this to use with my Sigma 10-20 as I have lost 2 in interesting parts of the world. Decided to save money with this one but I'll pay more for a Sigma next time. Most disappointing is that it is not as compact in my bag as the Sigma. The shade doesn't tuck away as well around the body of the lens when not in use. Both space and weight are vital with travel photography. It is; however, a bit of a beefier feel which may be a bit more durable in the long haul. Time will tell.

            This was a replacement for a used lens that did not have a hood. The only issue is I cannot snap my lens cap on with this on backwards for storage and when the cap is on it leaves some gaps on the edge. But it is worth it.

            Secure but With Compromises

                  Comments about Vello 77mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II):

                  Snaps securely into the filter ring grooves, but if the filter is a polarizer, the hood will turn with the polarizer. When you store it on the lens, in other words, reversing it, the lens cap leaves a large gap around its edge with the hood and so dust can easily enter. These are bad compromises for me.
