Nikon HB-39 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Nikon HB-39 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR and 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR AF-S DX NIKKOR 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 the lenses it was designed for.

    Nikon HB-39 reviews

    HB-39 Bayonet Lens Hood for 16-85mm and 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Lenses is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Required It seems to me Nikon has a heck of a nerve selling a $1000 list price lens with no lens shade. Particularly as the lens shade is absolutely necessary to make decent photographs with the 18-300 zoom. My source for the lens didn't have the shade in stock so I tried an aftermarket brand. They sold two shades as a pair, one rubber, one hard plastic. The hard plastic was ok put it screws on and must be positioned right, then locked in place with a locking ring each time it is attached. Forget it. The rubber one is fine at focal lengths over about 50 mm but vignettes at wider focal lengths. So neither works. The Nikon shade does - for a shameful premium.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Hood I prefer to use hood always, if I don't need to use polarizer. It is good for illuminating glares and (important) to protect front element of the lens. Usually Nikon is mailing Lenses with Lens Hood, but unfortunately my new 18-300mm f/3.5-6.5 DX G lens doesn't have hood included and I had to look for replacement. Replacement hood is incomparably worse than original - too flexible and not locking into place. So, I found genuine Nikon hood at B&H. After that I forgot about any problems.As always, when I buy at B&H I got: good product, fast free shipment and detailed information about item. Good job, B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thought I didn't need a lens hood... Boy was I wrong! I used to think lens hoods were unnecessary, but if you like outdoor photography like I do I would definitely recommend a simple solution like this. Between the sun and light rain/snow, a lens hood just makes sense. If you try to cover or shield the lens yourself, you risk not letting enough light in (or capturing part of your makeshift shield in the shot). But with this, you don't have to worry about that. Funny how a little extension of the lens works so well to shield it from the elements (and accidents, I presume-- at the very least, it really does take some of the worry out of dropping a lens/camera).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate for the job This hood does the job intended: it reduces flare, and affords some protection to the lens. However, it can twist out of the proper position and cause vignetting. It is made of some sort of plastic that breaks relatively easily. And it can pop off on its own volition. I've learned to treat it as a disposable item, unlike the lens hoods of yore. Third party hoods do just as well, at lower price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Like A Glove Purchased the HB-49 because my old one fell off my lense and right into the ocean during a shoot. It sank like a rock as all I could do is watch because I wasn't about to dive in the water for a piece of plastic. Now granted, my old one was old, worn out and chipped so I resigned myself to purchase a new one. After an exclusive search on the internet, B&H had not only the best price around but I was assured it was an oem product. So when it arrived at my front door in less time they quoted me, I opened the package and I wasn't disappointed. This one fit like a glove. Thank you B&H. I don't think I'll be losing this one in the ocean again unless I need an excuse to buy a new lense next time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikon Lens Hood Lens hood works as designed. It would have been nice of Nikon to use the same lens hood on similar sized lens with same filter size (like the 18-140mm lens). One would think a lens hood made for a 67mm filter would work on the 18-300mm lens. Although you can get it to attach, the threads are different. All my lenses from Nikon have come with a lens hood until now. It is a shame to charge extra for a necessary accessory that is not compatible with similar sized lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old school protection for both the lens and the image Arrived on time and performs as anticipated. Installed for use it both protects the lens and minimizes unwanted light from peripheral sources. Installed for storage (backwards) it continues to protect the lens in kit bags or other storage. It is light weight, tough, and installs with only a twist of the wrist. Yes. I would buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens hood along with the 18-300mm lens is all I need. I should have read the info sheet more closely. I did get the shadow at the bottom of the photos. Excellent product when you follow instructions!
