You Don't Have This?

If you do not have this on your lens, stop what you are doing and go get one. Your wonderful "kit" lens needs this little added protection as well as the preventative against lens flare, period. The lens may be inexpensive but it's one of the best lenses Nikon produces. Do you have your's yet?

It broke the first month

The plastic ring that incapsulates the baionet machanism came off...

Can't get this to attach to my AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 3.5-5.6GII


from Cincinnati, OH, USA

I recently purchased this lens hood for my D3200 with the AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 3.5-5.6GII lens. I can't get it to stay on the lens. It doesn't snap on, there doesn't seem to be a way to mount it. What am I missing?


Great shade for 18-55 mm Nikon kit lens


from Schenectady, NY  -  Professional

The shade has two mounting buttons that retract 4 lugs when pressed. The buttons work well. The shade has nice anti-reflection coating. The cylindrical design will not cut off the image when focusing, a problem for petal style shades. The shade is deeper, with better shading, than Canon's 18-55 mm kit shade. The Canon shade is bayonet mount, so you can strip the gears if you mount the shade with the auto focus engaged! Good design Nikon! A Chinese shade I purchased had no anti-reflection coating, only 3 mounting lugs worked, the interior was poorly made & the whole shade squeaked when pressing the mounting buttons. You get what you pay for.


Very nice lens hood


from Louisville, KY  -  Semi-Professional

The hood snaps onto the lens front perfectly. It's a nice fit and doesn't interfear with the front of the lens. Meaning getting lens cap onoff isn't a problem. Very satisifed with this hood.


Just right


from Milan, NH  -  Semi-Professional

The lens hood fit the lens for which I bought it, and does the job for which it was intended. I am perfectly satisfied with my purchase.


Great Lens Hood


from Texas  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Finally a lens hood that snaps on and doesn't fall off and fits right


HB-45 lens hood


from East Meadow NY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Really like this snap on lens hood; I don't like that it included with the VR lens in Japan and optional in USA. All other lens come standard with a hood. However I do like the how it locks on to the lens, very fast and secure; you can't go wrong with this hood. Bought it from Adorama, got it fast, great price and with free shipping.


Simple item makes for an amazing shot


from Philadelphia, Pa  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Used it to provide some degree of protection and glare that otherwise can ruin a great shot!

good hood for the kit lens


from Macomb, MI  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Seems sturdy and it fits on the lens backwards for storage (I read somewhere that it wouldn't fit that way). Does what it's supposed to do so I am happy with it.


Exact Fit


from Cedar Bluff, VA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Purchased for the 18-55mm lens and it is an exact fit.


Just as expected!


from New York  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Works great for me! Does its job and protects the lens at the same time!

Questions about this item:

Richard C  Does this work with my AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G VR II lens?
MELVIN P  It worked fine on my AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 VR lens.
Shopper  does this work with my VR 18-55 lens on my nikon d5100?
ANDRIANO G  Nikon website says it fits on both lenses.
Roger o  does this fit the Nikon 55-200 zoom lens?
ANDRIANO G  No, it won't fit the 55-200mm. This hood only fits the 18-55mm. It actually attaches to the focus ring of the lens and aids manual focus if you so desire, just remember to move the AF switch on the lens to M.
