There is much debate over the actual functionality of the Lens Hood beyond that of protecting the lens from bumps and falls. It has proved it's usefulness in protection not long ago when I dropped my camera bag, the hood broke to pieces and the lens was spared. However, the real purpose of the Lens hood has also proved true. When you are shooting in the bright daylight there tends to be a little thing called Lens Flare. I shot without my hood and was surprised at how apparent it was. I have heard people say that you can move around to avoid it, but I'd rather have the hood as an extra precaution. At only [$] and some change for shipping, it would be ludicras to shoot with out it.

I have the Nikon 18-70 lens and the HB-32 lens hood and I have had continual difficulty putting the hood on straight and when it stores in the inverted position over the lens it fits loosely. Due to the difficulty installing the hood for use, it frequently causes vignetting in the corners if you aren't checking the viewfinder closely and has also recently caused a large dark area in the bottom center of the photos. I just returned from a trip to Paris where I finally had to just not use the hood to prevent these problems.

          This lens hood fits my D7000 perfectly it is easy to attach in either position and is always firmly attached so I don't feel like it will just fall off. It's made of good quality materials. Definitely a good purchase

              It is always hard to go wrong with Nikon. This is a great accessory for the 18 140 zoom lens. It really does make a difference outdoors by keeping glare off the lens.

                I'm not thrilled with this product. I like the way it mounts the lens, but on my zoom it becomes visible zoomed out to wide angle. Other than that it is fine, but I wish I didn't have to worry about this issue.

                  Good Hood for Nikkor 18-140 DX

                  I have this hood mounted on a Nikkor 18-140 DX lens and it fits great. I like the twist lock hoods a lot better than the sprig loaded hood on my 70-300 DX lens. Fits great and protects the lens a bit.

                          I've owned cameras by different manufacturers. The lens hoods that come with the most expensive lenses broke within one week of purchase. Manufacture said, make a claim from the vendor. Vendor said, make a claim to the manufacturer. You get the picture. This Nikon product is built solid.
