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.
HB-23 Bayonet Lens Hood 1 1
Product needs work I have a wonderful Nikon 17-35 F2.8 lens. While I owned only one of these, it seems I have owned 3 HB23 hoods. They are very fragile in the area between the bayonet mount and the wall area. In my view, they tend to break under the stress of normal use. In my opinion if the sections were increased slightly, the problem would go away. June 25, 2011
