B+W 65-069645 Overview

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.

The B+W #970 wide-angle metal lens hood is made of black-anodized aluminum with light-absorbing flat black ribs on the inside and protects against contrast-reducing, uncontrolled, stray light. It is designed for wide-angle (zoom) lenses with angles of view up to 70° wide (approx. 28mm in 35mm format).

Needs thread for lens cap

By Herman

The quality is excellent, and it works for using a polarizing filter on my Leica Q2 (unlike the original Leica hood). The MAJOR design flaw is that there are no filter threads on the front, so there's no way to attach a lens cap.

Stylish and solid

This is a fantastic little hood for a wide angle lens. It also is OK up to about 40mm. The fit is great and it is a typical precision B+W product. I wish they made one tht was a little longer.

Superb workmanship

While it is not inexpensive, the extra dollars spent buy a superbly machined, all-metal lens hood. Perfect fit, and it works well on my rangefinder camera.

A finely crafted lens hood from the one would expect. Not cheap but the best! (I am using this on a Schneider 35mm Curtagon PC/shift lens)

Highly recommended

Highly recommended. Quality. More important is that you can use the hood while a polarizing filter is still attached to the lens. I had to return a hood of other style and from other manufacturer, because i cannot use the hood and polarizing filter as the same time.

Perfect Size for Sony E-Mount Lenses

By Craig
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2015-02-06

This is the perfect size and design for several of the Sony E-Mount and FE Mount lenses I own. I have one on my Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8. and my Sony 50mm f1.8 OSS, and have also used it on the Zeiss FE 35mm f2.8. The native lens hoods on the 55mm and the 50mm are just too large, and I was looking for something smaller to protect the front of the lens from bumps more than keeping stray light out. I don't mind lens flair when it occurs. A compact lens is more important to me then a bit of light hitting the element. The hood is well made, and I like the shape as it flairs out (especially important on the Zeiss 55mm) so that it's at least the same circumference as the lens barrel. But truth be told, you can save a lot of money by just getting a generic lens hood as the build is about the same. You're paying for the B+W name.

Specifically, will it work with B+W's 49mm slim (MC) UVA Haze No. 010 (2C) BWUVMCS49 (manufacturer number 66-026919)?Thanks again.

No, that will not work. That filter does not have any front threads for the hood to screw in to.

You state that this lens hood "is designed for . ...

You state that this lens hood "is designed for . . . lenses with angles of view up to 70° wide (approx. 28mm in 35mm format)." I suppose that "wide" might indicate a horizontal angle of view of 70° (roughly that of a 26mm lens in "35mm format") or that the diagonal angle of view is about 70° (so about a 31mm lens). Could you please clarify? Thanks.
Asked by: Brian
The manufacturer does not specify if the angle of view is horizontal or diagonal. As it is not dedicated to any specific lens, the angle of view is approximate. While I would guess it would be measured diagonally, it should be compatible for wide angle lenses between the 26mm to 31mm focal length range. In any case, you may purchase the item and test it on your own lens for compatibility, and if you are not happy with its performance, you may return the item for an exchange or refund within 30 days of the original purchase date.

Is it possible to attach a front lens cap with this hood installed?
Asked by: Rob A.
Yes you can. I used a Mamiya 67mm front cap at first but found it fell off too easily. I switched to a Nikon 67mm front cap and it holds on very well. Make sure its Nikon and not a cheap cap or you will be replacing it often!

Can you attach a 49mm lens hood to this hood?
Asked by: Mackenzie
I'm guessing this is a typo and you want to attach a 49mm filter. You want to attach the filter to the lens and then the hood to the filter.
