Not As Desirable As Standard Hood

By Albert
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2016-12-08

To be perfectly honest, I purchased this hood only because I wasn't aware that the lens already was supplied with a hood, since its inclusion was not even hinted at in the lens description. Often hoods, if desired, are required to be purchased separately, and I thought this was such a case, especially seeing it listed below among the accessories as custom made for 35mm f/1.7 Ultron Lens. To describe this lens hood requires comparison with what already accompanies the lens. This standard hood is unvented, and screws on to either the lens or a filter. It had no threads on its outer surface, so a filter can't be screwed into this hood. Lens protection is with a push-on end cap, with the mating surface broad and lined for a smooth application and removal and a quite secure fit. This vented hood is a clamps to the lens barrel with pressure applied by a screw pushing against a broad inner metal layer so as to prevent damage to the lens barrel. However, there is no end cap. To protect the lens optics, the small, plastic, spring-loaded pinch type lens cap that comes with the lens must be used. This is just clumsy to operate, not quick and sure, as is the push-on end cap for the standard hood. The only advantage I can see is perhaps some more vision with a true rangefinder type camera (Leica), but even that advantage seems meager. If vignetting might pose a problem with a full size sensor camera, securing the hood to the barrel behind the threaded end might prove beneficial. Since mine is a mirrorless camera, I see no purpose for this hood in my system. I gave it 3 stars because it seems to be well constructed. However, I will not be keeping it.

The Voigtlander LH-9 Lens Hood for 35mm f/1.7 Ultron Lens (Silver) is just a lens hood. It is not designed to prevent dust from getting to the lens. Dust can come through the openings on the hood.

According to Voigtlander's website, the Voigtlander LH-9 Lens Hood is only compatible for use with the Voigtlander Ultron 35mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens. It would not be compatible for use with the Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5 Aspherical Lens.

Can you use a UV filter with this lens?. I have all my lenses with B+W 007 on them. Many thanks.
Asked by: Alex
This hood uses a threaded mount. If you use the filter first you should be able to use them together.

question

is this hood can be fit on Voigtlander 35mm/f1.2 version ll ?
Asked by: steven
As should be evident from the photograph, this hood clamps to the exterior of the lens barrel. I'm assuming that since the filter for the f1.2 is 52mm vs 46 for the f1.7, the barrel diameters are accordingly different, and this hood won't fit the f1.2 lens.
