The good thing about this hood is the ability to store it without having to make more room for it. The lock is secure enough for the average photographer but don't expect shoulder to shoulder picture taking and expecting it to stay on.
The downside to this is the locking ring does not stay well on my Tamron Autofocus 18-200mm lens. It will screw on about 2 threads before it skips off the lens thread and becomes loose again. Now if I put a separate lock ring from ANOTHER hood and then mount this one on the prior lock ring, it will work fine (which is odd).
Good for what it is, just double check right when you get it that it actually screws on the lens and "locks" in place.
Nothing wrong with the quality - but the design is questionable. The cap and keeper are great, and they even include a microfiber lens cloth, so no gripe with the vendor - just wanted that out of the way. Got a smoking FleaBay deal on a used Sigma 17-70 2.8 macro, but the original hood and cap had been lost (probably why it was a smoking deal).
The hood, depending on the lens you'll use it on, may be great or awful. Anything under (guessing, based on EVF) about 28mm will have major vignetting, and as you go wider the problem gets exponentially worse, Longer focal lengths should have no issues. This is because the mounting ring (what the hood itself attaches to) does not mount to the hood threads on the outside of the lens barrel end, but on the internal threads of the lens itself (like a screw-in filter). Theoretically, you can still use filters and your lens cap when this is in place, but in practice, you can't because the outer part of the hood is so close to the...
This lens hood fits the filter mount for my Tamron 10-24mm lens for Nikon cameras, but the adapter moves the filter too far forward so that the petals are visible at the sides of the frame in the widest angle settings. I tried filing down the petals so that they are out of the frame but discovered that at its widest angle of 10mm the mounting adapter ring itself is still visible at the corners of the frame. My Tamron lens is not specifically listing in the sellers ad as being compatible with this lens hood (The Nikon 10-24mm lens is listed, not the Tamron), so I can't really say this is the fault of the Seller. Since I drastically altered the product, I did not feel justified in returning it.
