Key Features

Optional bayonet lens hood for 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-45 Lens Hood 5 5 2 2
Must have! Bought this hood after 9 months and realized what I was missing, its incredible how you can experience better light/distance sensitiveness. Must have, recommended. November 14, 2012
You Don't Have This? If you do not have this on your lens, stop what you are doing and go get one. Your wonderful "kit" lens needs this little added protection as well as the preventative against lens flare, period. The lens may be inexpensive but it's one of the best lenses Nikon produces. Do you have your's yet? July 16, 2011

The Nikon HB-45 as seen below, is a compatible lens hood for the 18-55mm lens. Nikon does not manufacture a petal styled HB-45 II lens hood.
