Hello all, this may not belong here, moderators move to where you see fit. ;)

I recently bought a Nikon 35mm f/2 for my D50 and an HN-3 hood. I'm not liking how tiny this thing is. I feel like there is very little benefit from its size.

Has anyone purchased a larger one or a different one for this lens? Or can recommend a better one? This one comes out about 1 inch to perhaps 1.25 inches.

Thanks.

Thanks! I'll check it out. Is it possible to put a lens cap on these?

The HN-3 is for the 35mm on a full frame camera (film or DX) so you can use a longer hood on a DX D50. In theory a hood for a 50mm standard lens should work but you should really check for problems at small apertures.
