Nikon HB-23 overview

  • 1Description

The HB-23 Bayonet Lens Hood from Nikon is a petal-type bayonet mount lens hood for select Nikon wide-angle zoom lenses.

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 "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of select NIKKOR lenses.

    Nikon HB-23 reviews

    HB-23 Bayonet Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth a few extra bucks I bought this because I lost the hood to my 10-24mm lens. I have bought replacement hoods from 3rd party manufacturers before and while sometimes the price difference is justified for the lesser quality, in this case as at the time of purchase this was just a few dollars more than the 3rd party, I opted for the Nikon. The plastic is just a bit more heavy duty and the bayonet clips feel more robust when you attach it. I wouldn't say for every replacement, but in this instance I think it was worth the money for the Nikon.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cuts flare from bright New Mexico light Like all hoods, HB-23 cuts flare and offers some protection to the lens. I never leave home without one in sunny New Mexico. Though the mounting system is ingenious, it is not fool proof: I lost the original hood that came with the lens when I took a fall while telemark skiing-- I got up and did not realize the hood had come off in the snow. A tab or two of darkroom tape can be applied to the back of the hood to secure it better, without interfering with lens function. Recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy Nikon for quality About three years ago I dropped a lens just hard enough to shatter the original Nikon hood, so I replaced it with an unbranded one. I figured it's just a piece of plastic, so why pay more for the Nikon brand? After a while, the bayonet attachment started to get loser, and eventually, it pretty much stopped 'clicking' on at all. It would fall off at a touch - like when I was walking with my camera and brushed it against my leg. I got tired of that, so I recently ended up paying for the Nikon one anyway. It's obviously made from a harder plastic than the no-name brand, which, I expect, is why the bayonet lasts better. Unlike some other reviewers, I don't think it's thin or flimsy - for what it is it seems pretty robust to me. I don't have a padded camera bag so my gear gets a bit of a hard life rattling around in my shoulder bag. This hood has stood up to my mistreatment just fine, bouncing around attached to my 17-35.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The HB-23 Has A Design Flaw I have now broken three HB-23s. There are two weak spots in the HB-23: two of the four places where the outer shade dips down to a low point between petals, coincide with some sort of slot in the inner ring of the bayonet attachment. There is very little plastic material at these two points and it doesn't take much of a blow to produce a crack and then the hood will not stay attached to either the 12-24 or the 17-35. Also, the hood gets knocked off the lens fairly easily. I have had at least 30 Nikon lenses over the years, and I always use a hood. I have never had this problem with any of the other hoods. Therefore, you may lose it before it breaks. If/when my current hood breaks, I am going to try one of the third party hoods. I doubt that they could be worse, and at least they cost less.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as it should Vital accessory. Not super durable and personally I would prefer a mount other than bayonet but this gets the job down and the replacement price is very reasonable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cures illness! expensive but necessary ain't it? broke the original one. Good lesson to be learned... Camera gear is expensive so take care of it. Have a nice day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be Careful The functionality of this lens hood is somewhat limited because you can't really have much of a hood on a lens that runs down to 16. It's incredibly thin, and therefore somewhat fragile. It of course looks good on the lense, does provide SOME cover and SOME protection, so it's ok. No problems just somewhat limited and somewhat fragile. It would make sense to beef up something this thin with a material stronger than plastic, would make it a much better product.
