The Vello 82mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II) is designed to fit lenses with a 82mm 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.

            When using a B+W UV filter, this hood will not clip on.

              Bought this for a Rokinon Tilt-Shift 24mm. Works well, even when a protective filter is on the lens.

              Comments about Vello 82mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II):

              This lens hood has helped to eliminate most of the glare I would experiance when shooting scenes with the sun as part of the back lighting. The only downside is the tabs you push to unlock the lens hood from the lens seem a little flimsy.

                    I bought a used 21mm lens without a hood. OEM hood is expensive and hard to find. This hood works fine and doesn't vignette, provided one is careful about setting the hood up in the proper position. Only inconvenience is that it does take up more space in the bag.

                    I bought this for my Tamron 24-70 2.8 - I'm satisfied with it for the price. Drawbacks are small amount of vignetting and it can easily snap off if you bump it.
