Nikon 4960 reviews

HB-53 Bayonet Lens Hood is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Plastic I purchased this as replacement from the original that came with the lens. I have to say I am disappointed with the quality as it is made with all plastic. The issue is with the tabs that attaches onto the lens and they break off. Without the tabs, it is difficult to put on and take off of the lens. The tabs on the original and my now replacement lens hood broke off so it is now an expensive replacement. For what Nikon charge for this lens hood, it should be made of aluminum and not plastic. I will give the Vello brand a try as it about half the cost. With plastic lens hood, you have to be careful while it is attached and take it off immediately when you are done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Useful piece of equipment, adding another layer of protection for the lens and helping to reduce flare. It fits tightly to the lens without adding weight. Be sure to remove it if you will be using flash.
Date published: 2014-04-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less Than Sturdy I managed to drop the camera, not far, no damage to the lens or the D4, but the grooves in the shade were damaged and now it has an annoying click and movement to it, frustrating and annoying more than anything else. Cameras do drop, even for the more careful among us, but again, a stronger shade (and I have experience with many) would have been nicer. I've decided to put up with it for the while, given the price of a new one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what it is supposed to do: protection It is my second hood within last three months. I was hurried to turn the first hood quickly and broke it. This hood is very big. So it takes extra attentions to put it on and off the camera. I accidentally hit the camera to a tree trunk and the second hood got scratched, but the lens and filter were kept OK. It is made of weaker plastic materials to protect stronger plastic materials. There is no alternative. So I would recommend using it unless you opt to leave the hood at home.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from expect someting sturdier fro Nokon I ordered a replacement because the original split at a thin area. One has to be very careful with this item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from expensive, weak.. due the price is very weak. may broken .. the 1st mine happened that
Date published: 2011-11-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to do The lens is made out of opaque material which is good, otherwise it would do a poor job of shading the front element. Transparent lens hoods I've tried don't work as well. Since the item is made by Nikon it fits properly and no duct tape or super glue is needed to hold it in place. Given that plastic lasts thousands of years in a landfill I'd expect this part to last a few years in the hands of a photographer. The material is a bit thin and most likely the lens hood will eventually crack from being overtightened by some ham fisted person or just some average shooter in a hurry. Or it may fall off a cliff at the Grand Canyon because someone didn't tighten it enough.All in all, if you have a AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4 ED VR lens this will shade the front element unless you just aim the sucker into the sun. At $$ it's a bit over priced but then almost everything from Nikon is, especially their accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exact Replacement Since the WORST thing Nikon does is lens caps and lens hoods you can expect to be replacing these things once in a while. This one is just like the one that came with my lens. That one only lasted a year before it bacame too hard to get on or off the lens. We'll see how long this one lasts but I may try something non-Nikon next time.
