    I dont know how useful it really is for the 50mm 1.8 as a shade. But it does well to absorb knocks etc. Problems are that it is not a bayonet, and has to be screwed/unscrewed which is a hassle. I also am wondering about the longevity of the rubber…folding it and unfolding it may have some effect on its lifespan.

    Great lens hood. I wasn’t sure about a rubber hood at first, but this little guy does a great job, and is really handy. I’m a big fan of how easily the hood can be collapsed down when not in use. Great deal.

    There are currently no reviews stating that this HR-2 hood will work without vignetting with the AF-S 35mm 1.8 DX, so I took the risk of ordering it. Even the Nikon USA website does not list this hood as an accessory to the AF-S 35mm 1.8 lens. Since the original plastic HB-46 hood included with the 35mm lens is very short, I wanted something better since I take my Nikon D40 everywhere without a camera bag. As luck would have it, this works perfectly and photos have no vignetting with this fully extended. This hood also allows the use of a 52mm Hoya UV filter. First attach any filters directly to the lens, then screw this hood on the end of the filter (the instructions provided state that any filters should attach to the actual lens first). The opposite end of the hood is also threaded, so if for any reason you wanted to mount a 52mm filter on the opposite side, you could do that as well. The original Nikon lens cap will insert perfectly. The hood extends and contracts with a high quality feel. This item is made in Japan, and I didn’t mind spending a little more money for a genuine Nikon product. From the look and feel of this hood, it will last for years.

    This is a must have for the 50mm 1.4 lens. I leave it on all the time and it pretty much stays out of the way when I don’t need it. It’s so nice to be able to just pop it open as I need it. The only big problem I have is that when it’s folded closed you can’t really use the manual focus ring because it’s mostly covered by the hood. It’s not the biggest deal in the world, but it would be nice to be able to just leave it folded sometimes.

    It’s a well designed product, very compact, but sturdy. However, be aware that it vignettes very heavily on focal lengths under 24mm.
