1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible - do not Buy 30 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this hood for my Nikon lense 18mm - 55mm.
It is on of the worst products that I have ever bought in my entire life. When you attach the hood on the lense even though it looks perfect in the begining you will notice that when you focus (in most cases) you will have a shadow on the top left and bottom left corner. As a result you have to screw or unscrew ,a little bit, the hood every single time that you wish to focus!
As this is not possible, the product is totally useless.

2.0 out of 5 stars not quite right 22 Aug 2011
I bought this lens hood to use with the nikon 18-55 kit lens. It screws onto the front of the lens or it will screw into a filter and has a locking ring which helps to place the petals precisely. And therein lies the problem with this hood... it has to be placed precisely. The rim where it attaches to the lens is deepset and if used with a UV filter it prodoces a vignetting ring around the whole of the image when lens is set wide. Also the lens turns when focusing and this causes more problems if the top/bottom petals rotate to far. I dont intend to use this item much.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks good on the lens but look through the lens! 3 April 2013
By Sean Reilly TOP 500 REVIEWER
So, if you want to give your lens extra protection the hood offers extra protection against butting your lens into things. It'll make your lens look longer. If you're a man you may even find the extra inch something to boast out and hang it over your shoulder for everyone to see.

It's well made and matches the NIkon black on my 5100.

It's not difficult to fit onto the lens.. it screws on.

However there is a but.. and it is a big but..

THE PETAL GETS IN THE WAY OF THE LENS IMAGE AT WIDE ANGLES.

There are no instructions on how to install I fiddled with it a bit and then took it off. There are also vignetting problems with this petal hood that means it works against the effect of certain filters.

My advice would be to get a good lens filter to protect your lens against flare and damage and forget this bit of black plastic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected 31 Oct 2011
By Spider

This lens hood is plastic and a little thicker and deeper than I expected. It also screws into the 52mm filter ring of the lens which means it can turn when focusing (especially if using manual focus) and subsequently appear in shot. The trick is to leave it a little loose until focus is achieved and then tighten in the correct position with the knurled ring. Bit fiddly and can sometimes stick - don't use force! If using a filter, the hood screws onto that instead but this deepens the hooding effect and can cause vignetting at wide angle setting. It's OK when you get it right but to me the product seems a little tacky.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not of much use 26 Sep 2011
By Surojit
Not of much use. When used with more than 35 mm leaves a round circle in the photos. Can ideally be used for close ups - but again why you will need a hood for close ups untill and unless you are in a desert !! But at this price point it may be worth a buy for started.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good fit on the 18-55mm (52mm) lens 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
This Petal Lens Hood does not fit well onto my 18-55mm (52mm) lens. and has to be gently forced into place if I am to use it. I have ordered another hood to replace this after only 3 weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern lens hood for an old Nikkor 11 Feb 2011
Perfect for my Nikkor 50mm/1.4 AI-S which I use with my new Nikon D3100 on manual mode. This lens hood is light, sturdy and protects the lens. Not so useful with the AF-S 18-55mm at max zoom position, as the two larger petals leave a shade on the picture.
