    Why oh why can Nikon not supply this item with the kit lens?
    They must cost pence/yen/cents to make but they make a huge difference in the right circumstances
    Petal hoods look good but black out some of the corners occasionally, usually when you dont want that to happen.
    This hood doesnt do that

    A pleasure to receive and use yet another quality accessory that pushes with a discreet `click' into place over the standard 18-55mm short zoom that came with the camera.

    Possibly, it's not as quite as robust as the metal hood that comes with its bigger 55-200mm brother, but it feels almost the same. It's a very accurate moulding with a four-claw mechanism, pinched gently to open then released to clamp it onto the focus ring, rather than the slots-pins-and-quarter twist usually associated with bayonet fittings.

    It's not a crown hood in order to accommodate the fact that the focus ring of the standard consumer lenses revolve as well as telescope, so it has to provide consistent shading for more reliable metering.

    That's good, but a spinoff is that the increased diameter at the end of the lens actually helps with more accurate focussing, like a lower gear with a car or bike (the focus mechanisms of the Nikkor lenses tend to be fast - not much twist for a lot of change).

    Very pleased, and happy to give it the full five.

    I bought this before I went travelling in the middle east, where I thought that the harsh sun could cause problems with my photos. Sure enough, it proved it's worth, and makes it all that little bit harder for the lens to get damaged from scratching onto something. Another added bonus is that it acts as a lower gear when using manual focus, which is far too sensitive on the AF-S 18-55 without it, almost unusably so I thought. However, with this hood, I could make the fractional degree movements necessary to change focus on such a poorly designed manual focus (I know it's not intended for manual use, but hey).

    If none of the above sounded useful to you, then save the £20 and buy some more memory or something.

    Great product. Fits very well onto the lens. I initially thought that it may hamper my use of a polarizing filter but it does not at all which is an obvious bonus. Would highly recommend this original Nikon product that should be part of the camera kit from Nikon.

    Bought this to go on my 18 - 55 mm nikon lens for my camera and was worried by some other reviews that I woukd vinaigrette around the edges of my pictues if taken too wide but right up to 18mm there is no hint of the hood in my snaps

    An excellent and essential accessory (Nikon - please provide one with the lens!). Beautiful quality (it's made by Nikon...), improves image colour and contrast. DON'T BE TEMPTED TO BUY A CHEAPER SUBSTITUTE. They just don't work well (scratchy fit on the lens, prone to breakage). You pays your money and takles your choice...

    This is a product of typically high Nikon quality. It snaps into place smoothly on the lens, it is rigidly held and the release mechanism works with minimal pressure. The hood is also very light, barely noticeable when fitted.
