For the users of the 180mm f2.8 AF-D lens. Do you use the built-in lens hood or is there a better alternative lens hood when using this lens with a DSLR camera? I'm fixing to order this lens within the next few days and am wondering if I need to order a different hood for it at the same time. I know it comes with a built-in hood, just wondering if there is one that is recommended to be better when using this lens on a digital camera. Thanks in advance for the replies.

If you want a deeper hood than the built-in hood, consider the B+W screwin metal telephoto hood. Check B&H for details. This hood is much longer than the built-in hood, it probably vignets when used on film cameras but should be fine for DX.

the builtin is great and the builtin part is even better
the 300/4 has the same s/u
but both are also open on the back end so be careful changing lenses

I can't imagine what I'd shoot with mine that would require a different hood. I was shooting backlit GBHs and cormorants this morning near my condo with no problems. I think you'll find the built in hood adequate. Not to worry ... and you're in for a real treat when you view your first images with it. Be well and shoot lots.
