Improve visibility and reduce flare with Tokina's 82mm Bayonet Lens Hood for their AT-X AF 24-70mm f/2.8 PRO FX lens. The petal-like design provides enough coverage to block stray light from entering the wide lens, without showing up in the frame itself and causing vignetting. Additionally, since the scalloped edges protrude beyond the front element of the lens, they protect it against light impact. As an added bonus, the hood is reversible, so you can keep it on the lens when it's not in use and quickly turn it around when you need it again. The hood is offered here as a spare or replacement for the identical one supplied with the lens.
