There is much debate over the actual functionality of the Lens Hood beyond that of protecting the lens from bumps and falls. It has proved it's usefulness in protection not long ago when I dropped my camera bag, the hood broke to pieces and the lens was spared. However, the real purpose of the Lens hood has also proved true. When you are shooting in the bright daylight there tends to be a little thing called Lens Flare. I shot without my hood and was surprised at how apparent it was. I have heard people say that you can move around to avoid it, but I'd rather have the hood as an extra precaution. At only [$] and some change for shipping, it would be ludicras to shoot with out it.

I have the Nikon 18-70 lens and the HB-32 lens hood and I have had continual difficulty putting the hood on straight and when it stores in the inverted position over the lens it fits loosely. Due to the difficulty installing the hood for use, it frequently causes vignetting in the corners if you aren't checking the viewfinder closely and has also recently caused a large dark area in the bottom center of the photos. I just returned from a trip to Paris where I finally had to just not use the hood to prevent these problems.

Comments about HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses:

The HB-32 Lens Hood is easy to use. I bought it to prevent sun flare
and to protect my 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens from falls and impacts.

Does the job well

Comments about HB-32 Lens Hood for Select Nikon Lenses:

Although it came to me a little dusty and with a few scuffs. What can you hope for, it is a used lens hood. Doesn't at all affect the performance of the item. And for the most part the marks can only be noticed under close inspection.

My recent order was a simple lens hood which fit my camera just fine.
What I can say is that my order was placed and shipped very quickly and arrived in perfect shape.

After a front lens cap, this is the most useful accessory for most Nikon lenses with a 67 mm front end.
