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-39 Bayonet Lens Hood 1 1
Great hood, but be careful with a "pop" up flash Quarter turn on or off the lens (neat). Works as you would expect...however with the lens at 16mm using the pop-up flash on the Nikon will result in a shadow at the bottom of the image (assuming a horizontal format) caused by the lens hood.
