to avoid unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. The bayonet connection makes attaching the lens hood to your lens very simple. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.IMPORTANTThis lens hood is designed to replace the manufacturer branded version. A dedicated lens hood such as this, is specifically designed to match a lens or a number of lenses.

Just because the lens hood is designed for one lens does not mean it will fit a different version. If in doubt please check the manufacturers website to ensure you are purchasing the correct lens hood.
