Brilliant lenshood for the 18.5mm
Dec 7, 2012

Got the lenshood for the 18.5mm today.
My first thought - it’s too tiny for a 50mm equivalent.

Until - aha - you mount it the “wrong” way around.

It gets narrower towards the front and has an opening just big enough for the field of view. Inside is space for a protect filter mounted on the lens. Outside is a filter thread for the lens cap.

This made my day. I thinks it’s brilliant, unexpected, out of the box thinking that Nikon’s designers have done here. It gives the lens with lenshood a very low profile look.
Love it.
