A replacement plastic bayonet lens hood for a lost or damaged hood which is the same originally supplied by Tamron with the #A20 AF 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC lens.
This bayonet hood fits on to the plastic tabs specifically designed upon the AF 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC lens, and will not fit on other lenses.

Works as it should, but the not-so-firm lock on the lens hood sometimes loosens. I carry my camera on a sling, against my hip, and the lens hood sometimes brushes against my hip. It often falls off the lens and yesterday it apparently landed on a soft surface. Didn't notice it was gone until it was too late. Too bad there isn't a built-in button lock, like there is on the lens hood for my Canon 16-35 f/4.
What is there to say, OEM is the only way to go, fits and functions like it should.
Adorama's description for this Tamron Lens Hood for Af 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 zoom lens did not specify whether it fits in 62mm or 67mm diameter of the zoom lens. Historically, Tamron first came out the zoom lens 28-300mm AF f/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD [IF] having the diameter of 62mm and without VC (Vibration Compensation)feature. Soon after, Tamron made the same zoom lens with the VC feature, but having 67mm diameter in size, followed by another versions of the zoom lens, but with add-on and/or advanced minor features. Since various versions of the zoom lens 28-300mm AF f/3.5-6.3, but with different diameters, it makes sense for Adoroma to specify the diameter of the lens hood to help buyers distinguish from one another.
Excellant for everyday use. I rarily take it off the lens
