Vello HB-40 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello HB-40 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Nikon's AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you 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. The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements

    Vello HB-40 reviews

    HB-40 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never leave home without it! Great hood, I have been through a couple of these, they actually have saved my lens on an occasion or two. But I work with 1500lb animals that blow by a little too close from time to time... Does it's job well, blocking unwanted light, as designed. Bonus that it also provides a bump buffer, as needed. ;) VERY durable and works with the lens well, with clean on/off, no grinding to attach or remove it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like the Nikon version. I was impressed when Vello's version of the "HB-40" arrived. It's larger than I expected, and feels just like the Nikon version, quality wise. It's also way less expensive. Really helps keep drops of rain from getting on the lens, plus it's good added protection in case of drops. I would recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lens shade for Nikkor AF-S 24-70 f2.8 Have not used it much yet but seems like a quality product. Good fit, snaps into place, feels just like the original I lost.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price Not as perfect a fit as the original Nikon hood, but as long as it stays put I'll take this one for the price.
