Excerpt: i will use the product for personal photography.The quality is as good as it gets.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. 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.
