Looks good on the lens but look through the lens!,
This review is from: 52mm Flower Petal Lens Hood For Nikon D7100 D7000 D5100 D5000 D3200 D3100 D3000 D800 D700 D300 D300S D200 D100 D90 D80 D70 D70S D60 D50 D40X D3 D3S D3X D2XS D2X D2HS D2H D1H D1X DSLR Camera (Camera)
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.
