Okay, this lens hood is fine. Terrific.

BUT...the 55-200mm f4-5.6G ED AF-S DX COMES WITH THIS ITEM! Don't "take advantage" of Amazon's "Better Together" offer for the lens:

"Buy this item with Nikon HB-34 Lens Hood for 55-200mm DX Nikkor Lens by Nikon today!"

Because then you'll own TWO of these.

If you're like me, you may buy this unnecessarily. The 55-200 DX VR already comes with a hood, but this is listed as a recommended accessory with lens by Amazon. It won't let the lens operate thru the whole zoom range when installed in storage mode (reversed). This may provide some incidental protection to the zoom mechanism from accidental bumping when not in use. Just a guess.

Otherwise works as it should, just not necessary unless you want a scalloped hood. You probably already know all of this if you do.

So, hopefully I just saved you some cash.

I was a bit skeptical when replacing my solid hood for a scalloped one, but this is exactly what the lens doctor ordered. Not only is it just a touch lighter than my old one (a consideration for long shoots)but it fits snugly on my 55-200 mm Nikkor lens. The scallops make it easier to remove/replace the lens cap but it still cuts out the 'trash light' when shooting in low light city shots or sun glare. I heartily recomend this as a replacement/additional hood.

Bought this Nikon HB-34 Lens Hood when the original Nikon HB-37 Lens Hood was bumped off the end of my Nikkor zoom lens by someone with protruding elbows while shooting photos from a bridge. That original hood had served me well, though the fit was a bit loose. But as I saw it sailing off the bridge into the water below, was glad that at least I had a good camera strap. It was a lesson learned the hard way.

Saw the Nikon HB-34 Lens Hood for 55-200mm DX Nikkor Lens listed here on Amazon, and though it wasn't the same as the original one for my Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens, thought that it might be worth a try. After two years in constant use, can say that it was a was a good choice.

Not sure why, but the original 'round' HB-37 lens hood never was a good tight fit on my lens. At the time that I bought the zoom lens, this HB-37 hood came with it, so I shrugged it off and kept using it. There was a bit of looseness to it in the way that it fit even when double checked; the bayonet mount wouldn't go as tight as one might hope. But this HB-34 lens hood has always had a good precision fit, one that one would expect from Nikon, and it continues to do so to this day.

As far as lens performance goes, it's flower-type design works well for reducing the non-essential light falling onto the front lens element, especially when a filter is attached.

I bought this lens hood when I bought my 55-200mm, f4-5.6 DX VR Nikkor Lens. That lens DOES come standard with the HB-37 (round style) lens hood. I chose to upgrade to this HB-34 (petal style) lens hood for 2 reasons.

1) There is less chance of a petal style hood causing vignetting (darkening around the corners of your image) when shooting the lens at wider angles. I have never shot the 55-200mm, f4-5.6 DX VR Nikkor with the standard HB-37 hood, so I cannot confirm or deny if it does cause vignetting. I have been shooting the lens for about a month now with the HB-34, and have had no instances of it.

2) The petal style hood looks cooler than the round.

This HB-37 mounts very securly to the end of the lens. However as mentioned in other reviews, when mounted backwards for storage, the lens cannot zoom out to 55mm. Personally, this doesnt bother me. I zoom it to about 85mm, mount the hood backwards, and then zoom the lens out until the hood rests gently on the focal ring (about 70mm). As far as I can tell, nothing rubs or scratches when the hood rests on the focus ring, so it doesn't bother me.

Summary: Im really happy with the hood!

Well it is Nikon so it has to be quality. I tried a knock-off version before that would not stay on. This one works perfect.

Amazon was able to meet my need for a replacement of a Nikon Lens Hood which I was not able to secure from local camera stores for under $10.00 within 3 days of submitting my order.
