The B+W 58mm #900 Rubber Lens Hood is a screw-in type folding rubber lens hood that is designed for use with normal-length and short zoom lenses. It helps to minimize stray light from reaching the lens in order to prevent flare and ghosting. The matte black grooved surface diminishes inner reflections and the rubberized construction adds an extra layer of protection to the lens against bumps or jolts.

Works as expected
I use it on my Fujinon 18-55 mm f/2.8-4. It vignettes wider than about the 30 mm setting, so at that point and wider I simply fold the hood back. The hood appears to be quite sturdy, so I expect it to last for many years of folding and unfolding. This foldable hood is much easier to use than the plastic hood supplied with the lens. Unlike the plastic hood, I can leave it on the lens at all times. Installed, it's easy to screw in a filter to to clip in or remove the lens cap. And, it adds some protection to the front of the lens.
Very Fine Hood
Went to a Quattro DP2, which shares a hood with the DP1--a wider angle lens (32mm vs 43mm full-frame) which I didn't care for. This hood can be used for a normal lens, or fold up a bit for a wider angle as needed. No problems with vignetting, easy on/off, well-built and inexpensive; what's not to love?
Rubber Lens Hoods Rule
A 58mm Hood on a 55mm Lens solves most of Vignetting Issues. A Rubber Hood, in addition, provides less Internal Reflections than a Metal hood. My Nikon D3500 Kit Lens shows more detail, color striations, shadows, and depth than a Metal Hood. The difference is a mere 4 Percent, but it all adds up when Filters are added
Does the job well
Used it on top of a UV Filter, it worked great to take pictures through glass at the zoo.
simple, basic, serviceable
There is nothing fancy or special about this lens hood. It fills its function, in a simple way, without any problem. It is a good value.
Yes - I could use my provided hard plastic hood to protect my Rokinon manual lens, but I choose not to. Why? This #900 is much more convenient, and with a flick of the rubber hood forward, is in place! Small footprint, seems effective, and very convenient! Plus this enables an ND filter to be easily threaded on front!
Worth the buy
I frequently want to be able to shoot an image through a glass window. This rubber filter allow me to press up against the glass to avoid extraneous reflections. It also works well as a general use filter, and folds flat to easily keep in my camera bag. The only thing of note is that many - including this particular one - will cause a vignette if zoomed too wide..
Ending lens flare
I had the chance to photograph an old church at Swansboro, NC. Most photos were great. The photos on one side of the church had a large lens flare. This should keep the problem from happening again.
