It's ok... I guess.

This lens hood is advertised as if it was for the Nikkor 18-55mm lens, and that's not exactly true. It noticeable decreases the flaring caused by the sun, but if you try to shoot at 18~23mm the hood gets in the way (see my product related images), so if you're planning to buy this hood have in mind that the minimum zoom that you'll be able to use in order to keep the lens hood out of the way is 24mm, that's the reason why I rate this hood with 3 stars.
The build quality of the hood is ok, as well as the looks. It fits nicely and has an adjustable ring.
If it wasn't for the fact that you must sacrifice the 18-23mm range in order to have clean shots I would have rate it with 5 stars.
