Excerpt: i will use the product for personal photography.<br />The quality is as good as it gets.<br />Nikon engineers have thought of everything. There is little more that could have made the product any beftter.
Excerpt: Lens hood, well-enough made to also provide shock protection for plastic-bodied lenses.Have a neutral uv filter between from element and hood. Dropped one 3 ft and only lost filter. <br />Considered a HR-2 but thought it might shatter Nikon's from stuff on impact.
Excerpt: I carry a lot of gear. The space-saving aspect of a collapsable hood is a plus. Being a Nikon product I just assume it will be durable. An evaluation maybe a bit premature as I jusst started using it.
