Nikon 4955 Overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon HB-48 Bayonet Lens Hood is designed for use with the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II 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.

    Nikon 4955 Reviews

    HB-48 Bayonet Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from just like new, but new isnt great I use the HB-48, which is the hood for the 70-200 VRII, several times a week. The second time I had it out I fell in the woods and the thing shattered like an eggshell. Its def. fragile. I know its not suppose to be made of steel but it does feel a little cheap, especially considering the replacement cost. It should cost 20 dollars instead of 50. Also the ends of the pedals are slightly rounded which makes it impossible to stand the lens up on end. It is a must have piece of protection but dont expect much life out of it. I would go ahead and order a spare if you use your lens in any sports or wildlife environment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved My Lens I used the 70-200mm f/2.8II for the first time for a wedding. While practicing before the big day, I stupidly decided to climb a small tree to see how the angle would look. I took a really nasty fall that completely tore my knee and took 3 months for the swelling to go down (I'm still looking to have surgery). That's the bad news. Good news is the lens barely had a scratch on it, although the hood did crack. This hood really saved my lens and I'm thinking of getting a replacement hood. But I just can't get myself to pay $ for a piece of plastic! I'm debating if I should just superglue the crack and call it a day or bite the bullet and buy another hood. I would have given the hood just 3 stars b/c it's so flimsy. But the lens is so amazing and the hood really is a necessity that I'm willing to bump it up to 4.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fragile I originally got this with the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII lens. It lasted about two weeks; the first time I took the lens out, the camera dropped and the lens hood broke. At least it wasn't the lens that broke! It is also not possible to stand the camera on the end of this hood because the end is not flat. I do not see any vignetting issues, even with a flash (using the 70-200mm lens).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Life saver Thank god I had the hood on my 70-200vr II durring a soccer game. The ball was kicked right to my camera. Luckily it only grazed the tip of the lens- where the hood was. The hood shattered into a bunch of parts but my lens was fine! I only wish it could have lasted the hit so I wouldnt have to buy a new one but hey, Id pay for a hood any day over a new lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exact replacement for original hood The original hood for my Nikon 70 to 200mm VR II broke after an unfortunate fall mediated by my mother who took it upon herself to move my camera bag without checking to see if it was zipped close. The hood helped protect the lens during the fall but afterward failed to lock in place. Getting a replacement was impossible anywhere except for B&H who emailed me when it was available. Service was good and quick. This is the second time I have used their services without a hitch to obtain hard to find items and I would do so again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nikon Quality My original 70-200 lens hood was broken when a gust of strong wind blew over my tripod with D700 & 70-200 f2.8 lens attached. The broken lens hood was the only damage; the camera body & lens were undamaged. No need for a filter to protect the front element of my lens; the lens hood did a great job protecting the front element of my 70-200 f2.8 VRII lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my lens from a drop I had accidentally left the zipper of my sling camera bag open, for more than an hour when I was climbing. Well, 70-200mm was the heaviest lens in the bag and it slid out and fell on it's bottom (the rear lens cap) which took a crack and then the lens bounced back and fell on the side. This hood saved my lens with almost no physical damage! The hood is cracked but I think it did its job more than fine. $ to save a $2400 lens is a good insurance. Always have yours on your lens, even at night to protect it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HB -48 Bayonet Lens Hood This is the manufacturer's replacement for the hood that comes with the 70-200mm 2.8 G lens. If you don't have one , get one . This hood not only works to block any uv rays that hit your sensor when shooting in harsh lights but also protects the lens when not in use and placed back over the lens. It can protect your glass from accidental drops too! Worth every cent and you can buy right here at here at B&H.
