Mennon DC-s 52 Screw Mount 52mm Flower Lens Hood, Black
The main function of the lens hood is to shade the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality. But it will also protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles and in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens. The advantage of the petal shape design is, that it offers the same prevention of flare as the corresponding circular or rectangular design, but with a smaller size and a lighter weight.

It is a solid product and accomplishes the job, but there is no provision for putting a lens cap on.

This is a good lens hood. Pay attention if you're gonna use it on wide angle lenses as the flower design can returns unwanted vignetting on the shooting. No problem at all on 50mm lenses.

Great Hood; great priceAug 10, 2009
By James R. McMahon
I was looking for a hood that would fit my Pentax K2000 DSLR, and this one fit perfectly. I have 2 interchangeable lens with the camera, and should have bought 2 hoods. I did get a rubber lens hood for the second lens, but it is not a well-suited as the Mennon DC-s...JimMc
