Excerpt: I lost the hoot to my 80-400 lens, and without a problem whatsoever, B&H came to the rescue. What a great resource, and I highly recommend them for having what you need, when you need it, and at a price that you can can't beat.
Excerpt: I purchased a used 80-400 VR Nikon lens from B&H and the lens hood was not included. This hood was recommended as used or if I preferred new. The price for new was not that much different and I chose new. Lens hood fits right and stores on the lens backwords when not in use.
Excerpt: This is a quite sturdy unit. I cracked the original when I fell with the lens in front of me onto some rocks. It suffered a small crack but prevented any damage to the lens. (It took me a few weeks to heal.) It also works well for its intended purpose, that is as a shade.
Excerpt: And had to get a replacement. Luckily the original hood took the force of the impact, saving me any grief with the lens. Bottom line is the replacement hood fit just perfectly and I am off shooting once again.
Excerpt: My previous lens hood for my Nikon 80-400 VR lens fell off the lens into the water while I was photographing birds. It did not have a tight and secure fit on the lens. This new lens hood fits more securely and should not fall off while taking photos.
Excerpt: This lightweight hood does a good job of eliminating lens flare. It also screws on the lens backwards for easy fit into camera bag and storage. However, don't bang around from the side too much in reverse position - recently had to replace mine.
