Nikon HB-40 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Nikon HB-40 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the AF-S Zoom Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED 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-40 reviews

    HB-40 Bayonet Lens Hood for AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hood saved a $1800 Lens The reason I purchased this product (hood) was that I dropped the lens it was attached to. The lens was not secured to the camera body... The camera would not focus. When I turned the lens toward my face to see what was causing the malfunction, the lens fell off. The lens hit the floor by landing on one side of the front edge of the hood. The hood broke but the lens was unharmed. I don't know if that was luck or that the designers considered such non-diligent care when they designed it. As for the normal function of this hood... it goes on and off the lens smoothly, stays in place where you put it and does a great job of keeping stray light out of the lens. I will buy it again if I need to, but I would rather not test it again this way!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved some expensive equipment I slipped and fell in the Adirondacks, had a Nikon D700 with my 24-70 f2.8 in my hand. Camera and lens were slammed down very hard the lens hood was cracked in half and the mounting mechanism broken as well. The smashed lens hood was just hanging from the lens and I was expecting the worst. The happy ending was the camera and lens were fine, not a mark on either and both continued to work great. That lens hood took all the shock and force of the fall and saved my favorite camera and lens!! So glad I had it on the lens, be sure to use yours it could save the day for you too!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lens hood saved my Lens Received a hood with the lens but.....On a trip to Alaska my lens rolled off a small table on a small boat and apparently hit the floor on the lens hood. It broke the sleeve on the hood, but the lens survived. While it has been a little bulky, I have purchased another and I will be using regularily. I have not tested its glare reducing capabilities, but have not seen any glare in my photos. I used this lens about 90% of the time. It is worth the weight and bulkyness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very strong/ saved my 24-70mm I am not the kindest person to my camera gear. I try to be but the reality is it lives a tough life. I have had my Nikon D300 plus 24-70mm lens fall from the seat of our Chevy Tahoe and from the hight of a tall bed and land directly on the lens hood. The lens hood saved my lens and camera. Finally after 4 or 5 pretty bad falls the plastic cracked and I am now purchasing a replacement. This is cheep insurance for my equipment. Plus its a pretty good sun shade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't take a chance on quality I was carrying my D800 with Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 on my side on my Blackrapid strap when I slipped on Ice. The stock Nikon lens hood took the blow and ended up asorbing the load by breaking the plastic mechanism where it locks onto the lens. In otherwords, $5,000 saved at the cost of only a new lens hood. Nikon makes strong Pro gear. No way was I not going OEM on its replacement. And by always using the lens hood I didn't bust up an expensive lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bayonet Hood I dropped my D700 with my 24-70mm on it and my lens was saved because of the hood. The hood needed to be replaced, though. I purchased the cheap Pearson version and it broke in 15 seconds. I should have just bought the Nikon version and saved myself the hassle. Learn from my mistake.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever Engineering This is the hood supplied with Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm lens. It mounts on the outside of the lens barrel, separate from the movable lens. Because the lens extends when set to a wide angle and retreats when set to telephoto, this mounting of the hood affords a variable shading of the lens - just what you want. However, the result is a large, bulky and somewhat clumsy hood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing the last one that saved my lens I bought this lens hood to replace the one that I just broke. I had my DSLR on a tripod with the 24-70mm f/2.8 mounted on it. Like an idiot, I stepped past the tripod in a tight space in a concrete stairwell, reached forward, and knocked the camera/tripod over. The tripod with camera fell forward and the whole thing loudly crashed to the concrete ground. The lens hood took the bulk of the blow, broke significantly, and saved my lens and camera. So when people ask what does the lens hood do anyway? I always just smile and say it prevents vignetting of course. ;) Needless to say, I used the B&H app on my phone to order another one from the shoot site where I broke mine and it arrived two days later. Superb, thanks, Nikon!
