Nikon HN-31 overview

  • 1Description

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.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Nikon HN-31 reviews

HN-31 Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well built but not convenient This hood is designed for use with the 85mm AFD f/1.4 lens. The hood's build quality matches the ruggedness of the lens. However there is no way you can store the hood on the lens when not in use, without the purchase of a hoodie lens cover. The nikon lens cap will not stay on the lens with the hood in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hood The 85mm f/1.4 AFD Nikkor is one of the best lenses Nikon has ever made, and perhaps the best portrait lens. The HN-31 is a fairly deep hood by Nikon standards. The hood improves the function of the lens by keeping stray ambient light from striking the large front element of the 85mm f/1.4 lens, which would lessen contrast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and durable This is the second time I'm purchasing this product. When my Nikon D700 fell off the counter, this lens hood didn't survive but my lens and camera did. Very durable build and pretty solid. I would rather lose a lens hood than a lens

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protects from glare and everything else I love this hood because it snaps on my lens to protect it. There was a scenario where I fell and knocked the hood- luckily, the lens was undamaged. Also, the 85 1.4 element gets glare- so using the hood will reduce it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big, Sturdy lense hood. Not much to say about a screw-in hood, but the finish is nice. Looks much better than the plastic bayonet ones. The only thing is that they charge you $ for this!! It just doesn't feel right.
