Good quality for a small price! – Massa Camera Lens Hood (for 52mm Diameter Lens) Reviews

Pros:
It is made of strong plastic, it doesn't seem as it is going to break any time soon :). It does what it is suposed to do, protects the lens from light rain, accidental drops, flares...
Cons:
Takes time to put on/off the lens which isn't a problem if you are not in a hurry (or you never take it off). Not suitable for wider lenses because the hood can get into your frame (on Nikon 18-55 lens if you zoom below 24mm in some circumstances you'll see the hood in the corners of the picture; it can be fixed if the hood is manualy rotated).
Other:
This is the first hood I ever bought so for me it is difficult to judge if it is better or worse than some other hoods. Also, the one I got is a bit different than the one shown on the picture - it has slightly different ring, it's rounder (nicer), and on the hood it's printed DC-S and not DC-SN. But nevertheless, it's good.
Bottomline:
Good quality for a small price!
