About Tamron LH-AB003

This dedicated 72mm Tamron Petal-Style Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC and SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) lenses.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Hood fo Tamron 18-270mm VC or 18-50mm VC

Excellent for replacement of tamron lens Tamron 18-270mm VC or 18-50mm VC


Most Liked Negative Review


Incomplete product description

The product description is incomplete. It should indicate that this shade is for the older version of the 18-270 lense (72mm). It doesn't fit the most recent version with a 62mm lens diameter. This specificity will help the consumer get the right size from the beginning. Will return the product. Otherwise, the product is fine.

Fast delivery, wrong size


from Santa Rosa, Ca  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The product was correct brand, but Tamron make two lens with same numbers but different size hoods. My hood is back ordered, but Adorama handled refund and placed me on back order list.


Exactly What I Wanted


from Broomfield, CO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

In the past when I have needed to replace lens hoods, I've looked for the best deal and they have always been junk. This is a direct replacement and works perfectly. I've learned my lesson.


Wrong part number!


from Pasadena  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This was not the right size lens


from Nassau county New York  -  Casual Photographer

This was listed as the correct hood for my lens but when I received it, it was to large I needed A 62 mm and this one was a 72mm. When I called to complain the workers were extremely helpful. They placed the order for the right size hood but it is back ordered with no date to have it shipped. I will return the incorrect one, but I am disappointed that I have to wait.


So happy together!


from Mesa, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This lens hood completes the lens. After having to go without the original lens hood, I am so happy to have this OEM replacement. The one drawback I find is that I fear placing it off-thread slightly and cracking this one like my last one was. Don't get in a rush putting it on quickly. Take a moment and make sure the threads are lined up before twisting. This is my only complaint. I don't use the lens without the hood.


Be careful that you get the right one!


from Henagar, AL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This was a replacement for one that was lost on a shoot. It took a while to find the right one as there is a very similar item for a newer lens that is too small.


Nice lenshood; does what it was made for


from Ashland, OH  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Bought this one to replace one I lost. Good investment. Saved my best lens when I accidentally dropped it.


Perfect Replacement


from Central Ohio  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

It is an exact replacement for the original and it is a lens hood what more can be said.


Actual OEM
