Re: No, the hoods from Amazon are junk

I just got a used 14-140mm F/4.0-5.8 locally. Unfortunately, it comes with a UV filter but no hood.

I do not live in the US, so getting the original hood VYC0997 is going to be a challenge.

Since I have no experience with lenses, I would like to know what is wrong with the cheaper hoods (screw-on types).
