Pentax PH-RBG overview

  • 1Description

The Pentax PH-RBG Lens Hood for SMCP-DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 Lens(58mm thread) is the dedicated lens hood for the Pentax SMCP-DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 lens. Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

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.

    Pentax PH-RBG reviews

    PH-RBG Lens Hood (58mm Diameter) for SMCP-DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 Lens is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works This hood fits perfectly for this lens, it has the ability to be reversed for a camera case, but gives a large shaded area over the lens end, and good protection for the outer glass. A little pricey for plastic, but it goes on the lens around the bayonet mount and allows you to still add filters, or effects to the threaded end of the lens. As this lens is a zoom/telephoto lens, you probably won't want to have the lens hood reversed, as you would for storage, as it covers 75% of the zoom ring. Chances are, if you don't want to use the hood, but still take photos, you will want to remove the hood completely, or just use the hood. This hood is by-far better for this lens than using a threaded filter type hood, or a lens cap type hood.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Always use protection I bought this for my mother, who just bought a Pentax K-x kit with 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses. The kit didn't come with hoods, but I'm a big believer in always using the hood both for reducing potential flare, as well as added protection for bumps & knocks. The Pentax hoods seem well-made. I wish they came with the lenses, but I can't rate the *hood* down for that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pentax 300mm Lens Hood as described Great product, just too bad there is a corner on the market. Seems like a high $ for $1 worth of plastic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product works as described I had to buy this Pentax Hood because the hood that I really wanted, Pentax PH-RBH is discontinued.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits DA-L Edition Lens I bought this hood to go a Pentax DA L version of the 55-300mm lens that I bought second hand. It fits the DA L version and locks in place when used as a hood. If the hood is reversed for storage, it sits on the lens a little loose, but doesn't fall off. It seemed a little pricey, but I figured it was a good investment to get the lens hood designed for the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected! I believed I had ordered a Pentax item previously, but it was a threaded item. The ability to click on and off separates it from your polarizing lens and allows it to store reversed and out of the way as well. Used it on a shoot in Nicaragua and never thought about it, just used it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overpriced, but no other choice I needed a lens hood for my DAL 55-300 lens and wanted one with the bayonet mount (vs the rubber screw on type). There were no other aftermarket bayonet hoods available. It fits precisely. In comparison, the cheap aftermarket hood for my DAL 18-55 lens does not lock in as tight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to do This is a good quality lens hood that does its job. I can see a difference in photos taken with and without the lens hood in bright light. It fits backwards on the lens as well for convenient storage. I knocked it down a star only because it is rather expensive.
