  • perfect choice for non-zoom lenses

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Pretty cheap for such quality

    - No vignetting for standart-to-tele lenses (no quality reducing for my old soviet 135mm Jupiter-13A)

    - Ring tightening works pretty well, the hood sits without any backlash.

    Cons:

    - This hood can not be installed reversed - there is no transport position so you can only detach it from lens. However if your bag has enough of space just leave it attached.

    - This mounting mechanism - at first you screw this hood to lens and then you adjust the ring. That is not too rapid.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    Though i prefer hoods that can be mounted reversed while transporting i have no regrets becouse this hood fits my needs (135mm manual lens) perfectly.
