Key Features

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.
Use of specifically engineered Nikon lens hoods is highly recommended.
In less-than-ideal lighting conditions, the performance difference can be substantial.

Also, am I correct in assuming that using a 77mm to 62mm step-down adapter for the filter will conflict with the lens hood?

Answer: 
I am using a 62mm polarizing filter on my 105mm micro vr lens with the HB-38 hood mounted. While looking through the viewfinder, I manipulate the filter ring by reaching around the front of the hood, extending a finger into the hood, and moving the ring with my fingertip, being careful not to touch glass. The maneuver is a bit awkward, but it works.

I am currently researching the feasibility of using the Nikon HN-30 screw-on hood in lieu of the HB-38 hood in the hope that screwing the hood to the outer ring of the polarizing filter will allow me to turn the ring by grasping the hood. However, the HN-30 is designed for a 200mm focal length lens, and the hood might be too deep for the 105mm lens, resulting in vignetting.

Answer: 
You may leave the hood if your filter is precisely 62mm; but if you have a larger 77mm on an adapter, you'll indeed need to remove the hood.

Answer: 
Don't know about the HB-38, but the HB-22 is the correct lens hood for the micro nikkor 85mm 2.8.I doubt the HB-38 would fit, the HB-38 is for the AFS 105mm micro which takes 62mm filters and the 85mm pce micro takes 77mm filters.
