Vello LHS-52II overview

  • 1Description

The Vello 52mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II) is designed to fit lenses with a 52mm filter thread. The hood is designed for use with internal focus type zoom lenses. When used with "full frame" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 20mm. With "APS-C" sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 15mm. With wider lenses, especially on full frame cameras, some slight vignetting might occur.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage with the minimum amount of weight and hood area. In addition, the design of this hood allows it to be reversed and stored on the lens, when not in use. It is also designed to accept lens caps. 

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.

    Vello LHS-52II reviews

    52mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood (Version II) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works OK with EF 40mm f2.8 Pancake Snaps on like a lens cap, but not so easily and I worry it could fall off even though, so far, no issues. Lens cap can snap inside, but is a little fiddly. Can also be reversed to save space. Hopefully the Canon version, when avaible, will screw in or be more secure - but Canon's is round so may not be as effectiv as the tulip shape.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from had to return it I had to return the 52mm snap on tulip lens hood. The problem is that the lens hood couldn't snap on with filters on the lens. It was a choice to shoot with the lens hood on with no filters, or shoot with the filters on and no lens hood. I decided that filters protect the lens and I get a better picture, so I returned the lens hood. It's not your fault it's the people who design this stuff

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snap on doesn't store well The snap on it a little weird and takes getting used to. I don't like it because there's no good place to store it since you can't store it on the lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hood Great lens cap purchased for canon 40 mm 2.8 and 50 mm 1.8 Only problem is you can't attach the lens cap if the lens hood is on.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed design I bought this hood for a 24mm Nikkor D that is threaded for 52mm filters. Mounting the hood was tricky. It would pop off if you even looked at it wrong. I finally discovered that you need to snap it on and then give it a 1/4 turn for it to hold on to the lens threads. Even then, a slight bang would dislodge the hood. Then I placed an original Nikon 52mm lens cap on the inside of the hood, and discovered that it left an almost 2mm gap between the cap and the glass - great opening for catching all kinds of dust and debris. What a piece of junk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good lens hood I bought this for my Nikon 18-55 kit lens, which did not come with a lens hood. This hood works well in the field, preventing lens flare and giving the lens a bit of extra protection. It snaps onto the UV filter without much problem. If it were just a bit easier to mount on the lens, I would have given it the fifth star. But I have no complaints.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, but... I got this for an Ef-s 60mm 2.8 macro lens. The unit snaps on fine and provides the proper lens flare prevention. The only problem I had was that it stated that it accepts a lens cover; it didn't accept the one that came with my lens. It should come with its own cap if the standard ones will not work with the product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use I used it on Canon 35mm f2.0. It's a little tight to attach on the lens, and I can't attach the lens cap with this hood.
