    If you have a lens whose front element is already deeply recessed, an additional lens hood won't gain that much. Also, fixed hoods for zoom lenses are problematic - unless the lens uses additional mechanics to adjust the hood, they may cause vignetting at the wide end or may be not very effective at the tele end.

    If you have the choice of spending $50 for a lens hood or a "UV filter for protection", there's little doubt that the hood is by far the better investment for image quality.
    yup, 3rd party provides lens hood.

    if u r wondering about "N", yeah they do

    when you're on a tour to some winter countries,never forget to bring your lens hood because the sunshine plus the snow to reflect light to cause lens flare/sun glare and man did it spoil most of my landscape shots.

    My Nikon 70-300mm lens, with the f65 package, comes with lens hood. I only use the hood when I do shoot at long range.
