Beginner has lens hood question
Mar 31, 2013

I've recently graduated from point&shoot to a Sony A57.  It came w/ 2 kit lenses.  The bigger Tamron lens came with a hood, but the Sony 3.5-5.6/18-55 did not come with a hood.  I do a lot of hiking and outdoor photos and quickly realized I need a hood for this lens.  I've looked at Amazon and Ebay and it is overwhelming which one to get.

Is this what I need?

I prefer not to buy one that has to be shipped from overseas (many are from Hong Kong and China).

I welcome any suggestions of elsewhere to buy, or alternate hood that might be needed.  Also, I purchased a Sony DT 2.8/30 macro lens.  I haven't used it yet, but will I need a hood for it?  I'll do a lot of blooms, bugs, and tiny critter photos with it.
