- AF-S VR DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G
One of the most important accessories for each lens you own.
A lens hood provides multiple functions:
- It shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather
- It can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens
- It protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles.
