Product Highlights
  • For Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens

The dedicated Vello HB-39 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR 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 "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.

          Comments about Vello HB-39 Dedicated Lens Hood:

          This Vello HB-39 lens hood replaces the original Nikon HB-39 that got damaged in the field. It fits perfectly and is very well made, even though the Vello is half the price of the Nikon part. Also, the Nikon part was backordered, and I'm glad the Vello was available. If I need to replace a lens hood or other part, in the future I will seek the Vello product.

          Comments about Vello HB-39 Dedicated Lens Hood:

          The Vello HB-39 lens hood is of similar quality to the Nikon HB-39 lens hood but the inner hood has a satin textured surface which is a little more reflective where the Nikon has a matte black surface painted surface. The Nikon HB-39 will be a bit more effective in some circumstances. The price of the Vello hood was less than half that of the original.DavePlease don't use your lens without a lens hood. My friend broke her hood. She asked me to take a photo and I scratched her lens in tight quarters, the first lens front element I've scratched since 1970. She didn't use a filter for protection either. The only time not to use this hood is if using a pop up flash at wide angle settings.

            Comments about Vello HB-39 Dedicated Lens Hood:

            Bought this hood when I broke the Nikon hood that came with the lens. In design,it seems to be virtually identical to its predecessor. It securely attached to the lens and works flawlessly. At 1/3rd the price of the Nikon hood, this is a great deal which I highly recommend.

                This hood fits the Nikon 18-300mm f3.5-6.3 lens perfectly, and it's half the price of the similar Nikon - with NO difference in quality or utility. Since Nikon furnishes no hood with this lens, this is the obvious choice.

                        Before buying this product, I was a bit skeptical how it would compare to Nikon's HB-39 hood. However, after receiving it, I have been very pleasantly surprised to find there is no difference between the Pearstone and Nikon hood. Buy with confidence and save yourself [$].

                              I bought this hood as a replacement for my 16-85 lens because I didn't like the idea of spending $30 for a Nikon-branded one. As far as I can tell the Pearstone is exactly like the Nikon I lost for a whole lot less cash. I won't feel nearly as bad if I lose this [$] replacement.
