Lens Hood 52mm Snap-on Tulip Lens Hood is designed to fit lenses with Lens Hood 52mm filter thread. The hood is designed for use with internal focus type zoom lenses. When used with full frame sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 20mm. With APS-C sensor cameras, the starting focal length should be above 15mm. With wider lenses, especially on full frame cameras, some slight vignetting might occur.
The petal shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage with the minimum amount of weight and hood area. In addition, the design of this hood allows it to be reversed and stored on the lens, when not in use. It is also designed to accept lens caps.
