Pentax PH-RBC overview

  • 1Description

The Pentax PH-RBC 52mm Lens Hood is for use with Pentax 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lenses. The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. 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-RBC reviews

PH-RBC 52mm Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is for the 18-55mm WR and has the window! I got lost in Pentax's mystery lens hood section; don't make my mistake. The WR takes a different hood at the time of this writing. And this hood comes with that really cool little window. You remove a piece of plastic, and voila, you can twirl around a polarizer. Or a variable ND. Or screw on/off a filter without your grubby fingers getting all over the filter. And note it even lists the filter size on the window door. Great touch, that. Nifty; every cap should have this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from exceptional hood; exceptional price This deserves 5 stars for design, not only because of the petal shape, but because of the tab that allows polarizer access with the hood attached. However, when I purchased my Pentax K-50 two lens kit, I was disappointed that this hood is not included, and for that I've given it only 4 stars. If you buy the lens ala carte, it comes with the hood, but if you buy the kit, it's not included. That seems deceptively backward and inconvenient. Pentax would do better by charging a little more for the kit, and having a kit that is complete.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hope This Works This hood fits my 18-55mm WR lens quite nicely, although it locks 90 degrees from the orientation in which my original hood locked (???). My main concern is that the tiny tabs used in locking the hood look quite fragile and I have some concerns in its durability and longevity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey, But Works I was concerned about this product, or the other Pentax 18-55mm Lens Hood. As it appears one works with a certain release of this lens, but not another one. I bought this Lens Hood for the 18-55mm & 55-300mm Lens Pack with the Pentax K-50 camera package. Thanks to the Customer Service person who commented on a question another customer had about which lens hood they should purchase, because, this is the lens hood you want to buy for the above lens in the package I mentioned. It fits perfectly, and can be reversed to put in a camera case. Easily flips around to protect the lens glass, or shade the front of your lens. Kind of pricey for a piece of plastic, but as it is made for this lens, it uses the bayonet mount around the outside of this lens. So it isn't a threaded filter type hood, or a lens cap type. Which allows you to remove, flip, or store the lens hood without obstructing adding or keeping filters on the outer lens glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must Hard to review a new product. But I'm happy with it. It's easy to use. You can rotate the CP when it's on the lens. And most importantly, it's cool looking. (Seriously -- it protects the lens from ... well, you know this already).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Good Transaction Hood was as advertised and of good quality. Item was backordered but shipped as predicted within the time estimated. Would have given a Five if item had been in stock but that was a very minor inconvenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality fit for my Pentax lens Easy on and off or reverse it to get it out of the way. Quality fit and does not interfere with the lens cap. A bit pricey for an item that should come with the kit from Pentax.
