This dedicated ZEISS Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent background Hi-lite rendering This lens is best used by those who are Bokeh aware. For me, an image, whether it be a watercolor, pastel or oil, consists not only of the primary subject but the background as well. Both must be crafted. This lens will give you beautifully rendered out of focus distant lights or hi-lites. If you want bright objects or colored lights in your background, it's either this lens or the Summilux. Front focusing is a characteristic of this lens so this too must be managed intelligently. Having said that, perfect focus is rarely the point of a dramatic image. Enjoy, I finally bought this lens after taking the most cherished images of my friends and family in available low-light, at which it excels.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why wasn't it included with the lens? Bottom Line: It's a lens hood.. it prevents unwanted glare and it should have just been provided with the lens itself. We already paid $ for the lens and this small piece of metal should have just come along as a package deal. It's way overpriced, but if you want to reduce/prevent glade, you just have to pay the price. I actually also just like it as it provides extra protection for the front element.If you came from canon lenses, you'll find this full metal construction to be pretty awesome. It screws on as a perfect fit. To remove it, you actually press down and the screw it off. It's very well built and never feels like it's going to fall off accidentally. The lens cap can also still go onto the front of the lens while the hood is attached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zeiss 50mm Sonnar Metal Hood Really great hood. All metal high quality. Fastens securely. I'm using with the Sonnar lens and an M6. You can see it in the lower right corner of the veiwfinder if you look. Doesn't interfere with composing. You may change filters and put the lens cap on/off with the hood mounted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Many people complain that the Zeiss lens hoods are too expensive and should be included with a lens purchase anyway. While I can't disagree, it should be noted that the Zeiss M mount lenses are substantially cheaper than the Leica offerings while maintaining excellent quality. The extra amount for the lens hood isn't a big deal. Zeiss hoods are top quality and the benefits are obvious. Yes, worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but excellent built quality This hood is built like a rock, but it's really light and fits just perfect. it detaches perfectly too. Just press a bit on to the lens and twist it. It feels great. When in use, the perforations help greatly to minimize finder blockage. I'm glad I bought it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made zeiss lens hood. Can't complain about the quality, fit and finish of this lens hood. Although I would like to see Zeiss redesign the lens hood so that it blocks less of the viewfinder. Zeiss should take some it's design cues from the newer version of Leica lens hoods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hood Nice finish matching that of the lens, and does its job. As others have said, it would be nice if it came with the lens instead of being a separate purchase. Obviously that hasn't stopped anyone from getting it. A good product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very well made, does the job well beautifully made, works well, very secure, provides extra protection to the lens. only downside is it is not inexpensive and it should really be included with the lens.
