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 #920 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).

55mm Screw-In Metal Wide Angle Lens Hood #970 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indispensible A good lens shade should be in every photographer's kit. It shades the lens from direct sun or bright lens ... and can protect a valuable lens from bumps as well. The 970 is typical B+W. It's well made and it just works. I have 2 970s, different sizes for different lens. This time I purchased a 55mm one. The 970 is perfect for moderate wide angle lenses (24, 28, or 35mm eqivalent). Just get one that has the right thread diameter. Do not use step down rings with this product ... you may get cut off in the corners. You spend good money for really good lenses to get the most out of every shot. Then spend the little bit more for a good shade. The 970 is a GOOD shade,
