Excerpt: This hood replaces the broken one for my favorite action lens, my 70-200mm VR II. It fits perfectly. There is no discernible difference between this one and the original equipment hood that came with the lens.
Excerpt: I lost the original Hood for my f2.8, 70-200mm VR Nikon lens and replaced it with an HB-29, which simply did not fit well, especially when reversed in the storage position. I then purchased the Nikon HB-48 (and some aftermarket HB-48 replacements). All fit great and better than the HB-29, but the Nikon, though more expensive, was more solidly built and is worth the extra cost.
