Tamron RHAFB003 overview

  • 1Description

This dedicated 72mm Tamron Petal-Style Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC and SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) 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 lens it was designed for.

    Petal-Style Lens Hood for Tamron 18-270mm (Non-PZD) and 17-50mm Lenses is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Careful, this is 72mm, may not fit This hood is listed for the Tamron 18-270mm lens. However, it seems there are 2 versions of this lens. If you have the one with 62mm end, this is NOT the correct hood. This hood is for a 72mm lens end. You can find the 62mm version on this site, it's the $15.95 one listed for Tamron 18-270mm lens. This 72mm is $

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I've had my Tamron 18-270mm lens since January and I am in love with it. I do a lot of photography while hiking and have been shooting quite a bit at anime and comic conventions. The lens is the perfect all purpose lens. The hood is perfect for reducing glare, especially late in the afternoon when the sun likes to try to ruin a good shot. When my camera fell off the table at the last anime con a few weeks ago, it fell lens first. If I didn't have the hood on it, I probably would have needed a new lens. Thankfully, the hood absorbed the impact. It cracked and became useless, but I'd much rather spend the $ to buy a new hood than a new lens.This hood is the exact one that came with my lens originally. Everything is back to normal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome is as awesome does! Tamron designed hood works flawlessly with my 72 mm filtered f/2.8 17-50 mm VC glass lens. Couldn't ask for a better companion to my lens than one made by Tamron themselves. B&H Does a great job of consistently having the best prices and availability on quality manufacturer parts and accessories. Thanks B&H another 5 star product at a great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Designed When placed on your lens in reverse you are still able to see and use the focus. Some lens hoods I've used would sometimes interfere with me while I rotate the zoom but this one never did. It is very easy to quickly detach it and reattach it for forward or reverse positioning. When forward it is also still very easy to remove the lens cap even with my large fingers. It has taken a few hard bounces off things and doesn't even look scratched. The only down side is I normally store my camera it its bag with the lens this hood was meant for with this hood on in reverse. It makes an already bulky lens that much larger. Its a tight fit but it works. FYI: The lens comes with this hood so this is a replacement. I wasn't paying attention and bought this at the same time I did the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy When I first received my lens hood it was too small for my lens. I called in and the person on the phone analyzed what the problem was and indicated I needed to get a different hood. He then went on to explain the process of ordering the correct one and then walked me through the return process. All of which were very user friendly and easy to do. A few days later I received the correct hood and also the confirmation that you had received the incorrect hood. Great Customer Service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It saved my lenses life! I had to get a replacement lens hood for my Tamron sp af17-50mm f/2.8 xr Di II vc lens due to my recent mishap earlier this year. My camera fell over while on the tripod. As I watched it fall in almost slow motion, I remember thinking, I'm going to need a new lens , but it amazingly fell nose first onto the hard concrete on the lens hood and only cracked the lens hood and not my lens. Truly a blessing for my investment. Note to self, keep the lens hood on the camera. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hood This is an excellent hood. I purchased it as replacement for the one my son broke.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Also for the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 VC! I had to contact Tamron to see if this was the right lens hood. I had lost the hood for my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 VC. The VC has a larger front so I knew the hood advertised for the non-VC version would not work. I was referred to this lens hood as the correct replacement for the VC version, and it fits perfectly. Snaps tight forward or reversed for travel, provides adequate protection and flare reduction. Great replacement.
