    It seems that Nikon has stopped making the HB 33 Lens hood. How odd. This is for the 18-55 kit lens. Well, seems it can't be found anywhere. So is there a different hood that will work with the 18-55 kit lens? I REALLY prefer a flower hood, rather than just round, and no cheap rubber hood.
    I'm sure there are others looking for the same thing. Nikon does not come out and say that any other hood will work. Any ideas out there? Anyone using one that works.
     
  2. I personally prefer round screw on hoods like the HN-3 since it makes life easier with a polarizer. If you want a flower hood just look on ebay for a 52mm hood. They'll be screw on petal hoods but they're cheap.

    Just any 52mm won't work. I tried the one for the 50 1.8 and it wont work. It shows up in the picture when you zoom in to about 30mm
