Nikon HB-38 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Nikon HB-38 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR lens.

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 the lens it was designed for.

    Nikon HB-38 reviews

    HB-38 Bayonet Lens Hood is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adequate as a hood, but very poor fit It's a hood and it does the job. However, it is much more difficult to attach to the lens than are the hoods for my other Nikon (Nikkor) lenses, both of which are easily attached and secure when attached. I fear that someday I am going to miss a shot because I will be fumbling around trying to align the hood and get it properly seated. After reading other reviews, I considered returning it as defective or, perhaps, not a genuine Nikon product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality equipmrnt I have this lens hood on my Nikon 105 AF-S Micro 2.8 It keeps stray light off the front lens element and also keeps me from bumping my lens into things when I do macro work. Fits tight unlike some other hoods I have - never have had it fall off when walking through brush and tree limbs. Don't use it with the on-camera flash - it will leave a shadow on the photo when doing close ups.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from HB-38 Lens Hood review The lens hood works extremely well. My only criticism is that it pops off easliy. I had to buy this one because the one that came with the 105mm lens I bought popped off when I was shoot over an fence at an area I couldn't enter. I thought that is come off pretty easy. Be careful with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hood. Replaced cracked one. Part of any professional photographer's kit. Almost impossible to shoot without a hood outside. This is the second hood I've replaced in the last decade. They're very sturdy, but given an active lifestyle and constant use, getting jammed and bumped, sometimes they crack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What to say about factory original? So, what can you say about the correct factory original accessory for your lens. It's right; well designed; perfect for the lens it's designed for and properly manufactured. B&H shipping was fast and the price fair. If you've got the lens, you need this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A necessary accessory. This hood is light and snaps in place firmly. It is plastic, though, so handle with care. I would prefer metal, but the hood does perform its intended function effectively. Don't leave home without it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adequate packaging and Fast delivery This Lens Hood replace previous hood of my 105mm Micro Nikkor 2.8 VRII. The hood is very important for macro work. Very good build quality.
