Nikon HN-30 Overview

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.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Although it looks like the metal body of the 200mm micro lens, in fact it's hard plastic.� It looks durable enough, though.�� I've only used it one time so far, with no problems.� The only downside is you can't install the lens cap when it's in place.

If You Have The Lens, You Will Want This Hood

If you have the Nikon D-Series 200mm f/4.0 Micro (macro) lens, you probably will want this hood. Like many of the hoods on Nikon's older lenses, it does screw on as opposed to clipping on like the newer models. A bit of an inconvenience and if you have larger hands you may have difficulty getting the lens cap on as the cap clips into the hood's threads. The finish on the lens is the same crinkle finish as on the lens and the quality is outstanding. The lens does get significantly longer with the hood attached so consider that if you plan on using a case.

Bought this to solve a specific need...

I'm using it on my Nikkor 200mm f/4 macro as a replacement for the hood that came with it. I upped the filter diameter with an adapter ring and fitted this along with a 77mm Nikon lens cap and it works better for me.

Lens Hood for 200 mm MAcro

Without the lens hood I was having issues with extraneous light on my photos. The Hood has been a great help. I was fortunate to obtain it from B & H, since the Nikon 200 Macro lens is no longer manufactured and available! B&H always comes through!

Does its job

Hood is solidly built and attaches securely when in use, but can’t attach it to the lens in reverse for storage. Narrow opening of the hood due to the lens small angle of view can make attaching the lens cap tricky with the hood in place.
