Thread: For those with the Nikor 18-55mm (kit lens)

  1. For those with the Nikor 18-55mm (kit lens)

    Not the new VR Nikor 18-55mm... The one that came with the Nikon D40 and D40x...

    In your documentation for the camera/lens (as well as on the Nikon website), it states that there is a hood for the lens- the Nikon HB-33. It has been discontinued- and you can only find a rubber replacement.

    However, the bayonet hood for the Nikor 18-55mm VR- the HB-45 does fit- I got it today from Adorama.

    Just wanted to pass that along... and save frustration to the many D40 users here in this board!

    Thanks for the info.....now what would one use this for?? I have one that came with my 55-200 VR lens that I use occasionally, but don't know the correct reason why, lol. I use it outdoors for glare purposes but have no idea if thats the right use. Sorry for hijacking the thread
