    55mm #900 Rubber Lens Hood is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent for flare and for protection.. ...all my lenses carry a rubber hood...for flare (especially for my single coated lenses), and as protection from light bangs and bumps. This particular collapsible hood is for a Graflex Crown with a large lens, and it folds nicely into the box, whereas a metal hood wouldn't do. This hood has the filter threads on the outside,so you need not remove the hood to change filters. The hood is made of real rubber (you can smell it as soon as the package is opened) which is fused to a plastic thread base.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hood, also threaded on the front This hood is far better than the one that was included with my Sigma 50mm Macro lens. The Sigma was not threaded on the front, so the hood had to be removed to mount the lens cap. This B+W hood is threaded on the front so the lens cap can be installed without removing it. The dimension is similar to the Sigma hood, and it performs well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rubber hood I've used More expensive than other rubber hoods, but feels good and like the grippy outer ring. Because I use this in conjunction with a 52mm B+W variable ND filter, the grip part of it is perfect to use as a control ring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition for variable filters Like a previous reviewer, TomV, I also use this rubber hood with the B+W 52 mm Vario Neutral Density filter. (That 52 mm filter has a 55 mm front filter thread size). This hood fits perfectly on that filter and as a control ring makes dialing in the filter strength a breeze. Throw in the fact that it folds down for easy, compact filter storage and this hood is a real no-brainer to go ahead and purchase. I leave this hood permanently attached to the ND filter and have picked up a few more in other sizes to attach to different polarizing filters that I have. I like having more grip to work with when attaching and detaching filters. I still do not mind the original, hard plastic hoods that come with lenses whenever I do not have a ND or polarizing filter attached, but on variable filters this type of hood is pretty much a permanent standard for me now. I think of this more as a variable FILTER attachment than as a LENS attachment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ Product! Not being a fan of big + bulky, plus knowing the rubber dampening properties of this hood should there be a bump, I'm very happy with the design and functioning of this unit. After one month, it's done well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Replacement Exactly like my previous folding lens hood. Like being able to roll it back flat to the camera lens and have it fit in the snap on case. No need to remove it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rubber lens hood I bought this for my Lumix Dmc-FZ70, beacuse Lumix did not have one. It's easy to put on. Retracts when you don't need it or if you want to add a filter.
