4.0 out of 5 stars Some things I can tell you...
This lens hood has a 52mm threaded mount and comes with a locking ring.

You just screw the hood on until the arrow on the hood lines up with the top index mark on the lens. Then screw the locking ring towards the lens to lock the hood in place (this prevents it from rotating freely).

On one of my hoods (I bought two) the locking ring would not screw...

3.0 out of 5 stars ordered by mistake
there is nothing wrong with this lens hood, its very well made and fits perfect, the thing is I ordered the wrong one for my lens, which is a 18-55, and causes shadows on close up shots, this was my fault for not reading the spec properly, but I'm sure it will come in handy at a later date

This lens hood has a 52mm threaded mount and comes with a locking ring.

You just screw the hood on until the arrow on the hood lines up with the top index mark on the lens. Then screw the locking ring towards the lens to lock the hood in place (this prevents it from rotating freely).

On one of my hoods (I bought two) the locking ring would not screw all the way to the bottom of the thread on the hood. I decided this was because of a small 'flashing' left on the ring when it was moulded. I carefully removed this with a small piece of fine sand-paper and all was ok.

Be aware that this hood is designed for a 50mm prime lens only (not for a zoom!) and it is designed for a full-frame camera (fx), not for the common cut-down digital format (dx) on which it would be less than 100% effective.

Positive criticism : Well made for the price. Delivery was way ahead of that expected.

Negative criticism : There is no 'front thread' so there is nothing to securely retain a nikon lens cap which will surely fall out un-noticed... This could have been so easy to incorporate.

Main selling point for this product is the price. As its not an official Nikon/Canon product, you don't get the hefty price tag that comes with them.

However, the quality of the product is not as good.

The piece is solid, somewhat plasticky but screws on easily and seems sturdy in general use.

The hood does produce a shadow in the image in the corners on maximum zoom.

Overall- great cheap alternative to an official product, so long as you don't use zoom excessively!

I bought this for my Nikon 50mm f/1.8D. When it arrived I have to admit I thought it looked a right piece of junk. It doesn't clip on as most lens hoods do, it has a screw fitting, and on the thread is a ring that screws off, but won't screw all the way on??? I'm not sure what the point of that is?
So, I thought I'd have to send this back. Don't get me wrong, the actual hood is good quality, just as good as any other brand I have including Nikon, it's just the thread that was putting me off, but I thought I'd try it anyway.
I have a polariser fitted to the lens and just screwed the hood into the polariser. It's a good neat fit, I looked through the viewfinder and rotated the hood but it didn't appear on screen at all, and then I realised how easy it is now to turn the polariser, I just turn the hood. So, I went from rubbish to excellent very quickly.
The one drawback I can see is unless you are like me who never changes filters on lenses you will get fed up unscrewing the thing every time you want to change one. if you are like me and leave them on, this could be perfect. If you have a polariser fitted, you may find it as useful as me.

I use this as protection for my 50mm Nikkor lens it provides the required amount of shading and front element protection.

Using on the standard 18mm lens, the edges of the petals are obvious in wide angle shots. Not impressed but, there again, I bought the cheap.

I would have given it 5 stars, but I noticed that the edges show show the cover hood in full view, I am a novice user so I am not sure if this is the way it works, if you zoom out a bit it does not hinder the view. I used a Nikon 3200D.

This is a quality product but perhaps just a little tight and therefore tricky to thread on the first time. I guess it may be the engineering allowances for plastics manufacturing I don't know.

It's not at all flimsy as half expected. A really pleasant surprise, as was the prompt delivery. Yes, overall a 5 star transaction.
