HB-50 Bayonet Lens Hood 7 7
Bayonet lock tabs flimsey I own a nikon D700 and Have recently purchased the 28-300 nikkor G AF S lens which came with the HB-50 hood. While in a DSLR case (which will accomadate a 70-200 VRII G f2.8 lens and hood) with the hood in the stored or backward position the hood became dislodged while extracting the camera from the case. Which caused the "bayonet locking tabs" to break. This happened so easily that I wasn't even aware of it till I couldn't attach the hood at all. I think that at the price one pays for genuine Nikon lenses we should get a superior product, which this just isn't! December 16, 2010
loose hood Ditto to all the above reviews! Lost my hood as well! While my camera was on my shoulder, I always kept my hand on the hood because it becoming detached so easily! Any solutions? March 12, 2012
Ditto Add me to the list of disappointed. You know how expensive it will be to replace, and the Super Glue jobs aren't sturdy. You find yourself walking backwards, or cradling your lens like a baby. So, What do you do? Call in Red Green, and Duck Tape that baby to the lens barrel. And how about if the lens cap that comes with a wide angle lens fits over a thin filter? January 19, 2012
Bad hood for a $1K lens! I also have the 28-300 lens which I bought recently for an Orlando Holiday. On the 2nd day the hood broke-off! I also own the 18-105 and the 70-300 lenses and the hoods for those cheaper lenses are so much better. Its a pity that Nikon decided to save a few bucks on a cheap hood to go with actually a very good expensive lens. Guys, please come up with something more sturdy. April 29, 2011
Just pitiful! I've had many Nikon products over the years and few have disappointed me as much as this hood. It's inconceivable to me that Nikon would couple this hood with a $1K lens....just doesn't make sense. Nothing to add from what's been said here and other sites: the fit is sloppy and can easily fall off. Nikon should pony up and fix this by providing a better solution for people who have bought this lens. At this point I'll try a 3rd party hood as soon as it's offered. Can't believe I'm saying that...... "getting a 3rd party hood for my Nikon lens"? February 17, 2011
