Pentax PH-RBA overview

  • 1Description

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 Pentax PH-RBA 52mm Lens Hood is intended for the Pentax smc P-DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens, and is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens. The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area.

Pentax PH-RBA reviews

PH-RBA Lens Hood is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pentax Ph-RBA Lens Hood (52mm) This lens hood slips on the lens with ease. However Pentax has some nerve, in regards to price. In my opinion this hood and all their lenses are overpriced! And to ad insult to injury they don't allow B&H to discount Pentax items. Pentax makes a fantasic product. I love the Kx DSLR camera and the 50-200mm lens I own. I have been buying from B&H, for over 30 yrs). The way the Pentax lens is made, you can screw in a filter and then ad the lens hood into the outergroves of the lens, and the sum total is that it is slik as whisle! Just bite the bullet and spend the money it will be worth it in the long run!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Durable! It fit my lens perfectly, seems to be of strong build and great quality! I had a little confusion with this and the PH-RBC lens hood that goes with the 18-55 AL WR model that is paired with the K-5, but I got it all sorted out. I would highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, the exact replacement After losing my original lens hood two years ago, and being very frustrated and disappointed with low quality third-party replacements, I was very happy to find an original Pentax lens hood at B&H. Plus, it was the lowest price anywhere. ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens hood This hood is a replacement for the OEM lens hood that came with the lens, and it works exactly as advertised. This model is for non- WR lenses. The PH-RBC hood is for WR lenses; the two are nota interchangeable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm having to buy this lens hood again! As a firm believer in lens hoods I always use this on the 18-55 kit lens. The hood has the advantage of light weight and it reverses to stow on the lens. The little port which allows rotating a polarizer is a good idea that all hoods should adopt. Unfortunately its bayonet attachment to the lens has loosened with use to the point that it is likely to fall off. I really can't walk about with the hood attached in shooting position.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for intended purpose I use this hood on the kit 18-55mm that comes with the Pentax K-x. It seems to work best from the standard to short telephoto end (35-55mm). As usual, it does get in the way of the K-x's built-in flash. It does reduce lens flare, unless you're shooting directly at the sun. It should also be good for studio work, but I've got prime lenses for that. Mainly I use it with a UV protector filter for protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits Pentax K-r perfectly Was trying to figure out from various sources which lens hood fit the Pentax K-r. There wasn't a definitive answer out there and nothing I found even in reviews for this lens hood. But rest assured, this lens hood fits perfectly. Even though it's a little more expensive that they non Pentax brand, I think it's worth it to know it fits perfectly and was made specifically for the lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designed for the lens My Pentax K-r kit included an18-55mm lens, but not a lens hood. This lens hood is designed for this particular lens. Fits well, snaps into place, provides added protection, can reverse on lens for compact storage. Note design avoids cutting off corners of images when lens at wider angles (shorter focal lengths).
