Best on the market

Costs a little more than others, but Nikon stays true to form and makes a product just *that* much better than the rest. Hood is a tad wider, deeper, and made of better rubber than any other off-brand hood I have tried for less. Does great to block the sun and folds tight and flat when not in use. Screws cleanly onto lens and filters and doesnt "gum up". Use it with my Nikon AF 50f/1.8D, 24f/2.8D, 35f/2D and 50f1.4D primes. Dont skimp here, get this hood. Its a cut above the rest.

Don't Bother...

Hangs onto dust for dear life. Semi-floppy rubber body requires a lot of care or it will quickly hold a warped shape. Also, it's kind of shallow, so I can't imagine that it is shielding much of anything, unless the light you are trying to block is 90 degrees to your right or left, making it more or less worthless. Makes a short lens look more pro, that's about it.

As Advertised


from Westerville, Ohio  -  Photo Enthusiast

What can I say? It does what it's supposed to do. USPS took their time delivering it (a week), but that's not Adorama's fault. Good protection for a lens, and cleverly folds back for storage.




from Narberth PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Lens Hood that does a perfect job and is a perfect fit.


Collapsible... Genius!


from Minneapolis, MN  -  Photography Student

I use this hood for every shot with my 50mm fast lens to prevent lens glare. It serves it's function, and the threading doesn't bother me. It feels very secure on the lens that way. The flexible material is so great. I was worried about it fitting in my case since the camera just fit without the hood, but it works perfectly when it's collapsed down!




from Denver, CO  -  Photo Enthusiast

I needed a lens hood for my 50mm prime lens. I like the collapsible nature of this hood because it can fit pretty flat in my camera bag. However, it is a threaded attachment and not as easy as the newer hoods for Nikon's "G" lenses.

Good but could be better


from Denver, CO  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this for the Nikon 50mm f/1.4D AF Lens. I like the collapsable aspect of this hood and the flexible material it's made from. The thread mount makes it a bit more difficult to attach than the hood for the newer f/1.4G lens. Still it's what's available for the lens I have and is definitely needed to help with lens glare.


great for my nikkor 50mm 1.8d


from chico,ca.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

very useful accessory for my 50mm 1.8 nikkor lense.


For the 50mm


from Lexington, TN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Had to break down and pay the inflated price because I love the 50mm 1.4 that much!


Great Product!


from CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've been meaning to get a hood for my 50mm and this works great! The soft rubber is so much better than the hard plastic and it's nice how it collapses when storing the camera with the lens on. I can't believe why I waited so long to get one of these. This has nothing to do with it's function, but having the hood on a small lens like the 50mm makes it look more balanced when using a flash.

Grrr...Didn't fit :(


from Arkansas  -  Photo Enthusiast

This didn't fit my Nikon 50mm 1.4 AF-S. I was very disappointed, because the description said it would fit a "50mm 1.4"...didn't realize the AF-S made a difference in the size. Not too happy that I'm going to have to send it back. If anyone out there know where to find a rubber hood for the AF-S lens, please post here!

The Little 50mm Nikkor lens looks a bit dwarfed sitting on my D700..and I have bumped it slightly at times...NOT any more,it sticks out,is firm yet flexible...and adds character to my little lens,somwhat like a tuxedo would.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
J. R. B  i like the flexability
Joan H  Will this fit my Nikon 18-200mm?
ROBIN M  No.This is 52mm where the 18-200 is 72mm. You are better off with the HB-35 reversible hood for this lens.
jj w  will this work on my Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX VR lens? THanks.
DAVID S  Sorry, I can't answer with certainty because I don't have the lens you're asking about. But you should be able to look up the lens on the Nikon site and it'll tell you which hood will fit.
