One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles.

Works fine but not functionally identical to the original Nikon. When it is reversed for storage on the lens, it does not click it into place. I only keep it in this position when it is in my camera bag. Some photographers, however, walk around with the lens hood reversed and they run the risk of having it fall off. Still, a good value. If I were buying the lens again, I'd get this replacement immediately and use it from day one. I'd save the original for resale.
This item was a nice cost savings over the replacement from the origonal lens manufacturer.
It's frustrating to leave something behind on a shoot. No one to blame but yourself. Adorama brand replacement accessories makes it easier to accept.
