Key Features

Lens Hood (Bayonet) for 18-200mm AF-S Lens.
Use of specifically engineered Nikon lens hoods is highly recommended.
In less-than-ideal lighting conditions, the performance difference can be substantial.
Flower-Type bayonet lens hood provided with select NIKKOR lenses.
By reducing the amount of non-essential light falling onto the front lens element, lenses can better achieve their optimum optical performance, producing more saturated images.

GREAT? I see lots of complaints that the hood falls off easily. Mine has never fallen off! When you put it on your lens you have to make sure you click it into place! It takes a little force but thats it!! January 11, 2013
Pretty good Very helpful for keeping lens shaded when shooting toward the sun. MUCH better than those rubber things because those end up showing in the corners of the pictures when zoomed out. This one will never show even when on wide angle. My only complaint is that it is not very secure on the camera--it falls off sometimes. The last time it popped off I didn't notice until I had hiked a mile or two, so now I'm buying a new one. But if you're deciding between this and one of those horrible rubber ones, DEFINITELY get this one. January 8, 2011
Beware of shadowing Although this hood is made for the Nikkor 18-200mm lens, it produces shadowing in the upper left and right-hand corners when used at 18mm. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found the hood to stay on quite securely. March 2, 2013
Poor design This bayonet has been a problem since I bought the lens. You have to be careful of the vignette it causes at certain focal lengths. It also falls off VERY easily, at the slightest bump. Most times I was lucky to have it fall at my feet, the last time it fell off into a pond and was irretrievable. Unfortunately it is necessary to add an extra level of protection for my favorite lens so I must buy a replacement. July 3, 2012
As noted, pretty poor Shadows the image at certain focuses, but more importantly it doesn't attach securely and with only a miniscule strip of thin plastic at the attachment point one bump in a crowd breaks it. Disappointed. January 1, 2012

I just got a AF-S DX 18-200mm 3.5-5.6 ED VRII with a HB-35 hood. The hood falls off with the slightest movement. Is there a way to secure this better? Should I put electrical tape over the rail or something else to make it stay on? As it is, it is utterly useless as it falls off at the slightest movement.

Answer: 
I just checked mine and it works fine, rotates and clicks into place.
Perhaps yours is defective.

Answer: 
Yes. I rotate it, just like other lens hoods that I have. This one flops around and falls off no matter how many times or ways I rotate it.

Answer: 
Are you turning it after you put it on so it snaps into place?
