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.

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

Fits perfectly however central California has been overcast, so I can't say how well it prevents flair.

Excellent Lens Hood

By Old Pro

from Eastern Montana

Verified Buyer

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

As with all Nikon products, this is a top of the line, quality petal shaped lens hood that securely turn/snaps onto Nikon lens and helps to protect the lens glass from damage. It does not vignette images, even when lens is zoomed to its widest angle setting (like my other collapsible rubber lens hoods do). As Nikon has a lots of different lens hoods, make sure you order the correct one for the lens you intend to use it on (as the petal designs are customized for the wide angle view of each lens). A must have accessory.

Protect Your Lenses

By JASD7100

from Reston, VA

Verified Buyer

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

I buy Nikon Lens hoods for all my Nikon lenses. They attach easily, and you can turn them around and attach them to the lens for easy storage when not in use. It is a cost effective way to protect your lenses and they prevent unwanted light from getting in your shots. If you need the added light in your shots, simply remove it.
