It's for 55-200mm Nikon lens with 52mm opening, although it should fit other Nikon lenses with 52mm thread, i.e. 18-5mm (however, the shape of the petal is design specific for that lens). All Nikon hoods have a dot with L shape and a dot with line to the left on the right side. Align the the dot with L shape on the lens hood to the dot on the top of the lens located right behind the lens filter thread and turn left a quarter turn until the dot on the lens and the dot on the hood aligns with a click. If it doesn't work, then you got a wrong hood or lens or else ...

No, the HB-46 is the correct lens hood. It is supplied with the lens when purchased new.

I know this lens hood compatible with AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED (filter 52mm). The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR also has filter 52mm, so does this lens hood compatible with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR ?
Thanks

No, you would need the HB-37 for the VR version.

Question

why not compatible with the VR version?

Sorry to come back with this topic. But why wouldn't this be (optically at least) compatible with the VR version? Aren't they optically the same lens? I happen to have both this and the HB-37 and they both do assemble perfectly so that's not an issue.

The only issue has been the storing of the hood on the lens as it does not allow the lens to retract fully when reversed.

But "optically" will it work the same?

Thanks

Not familiar with the 55-200 VR, but the only reason not to use a tulip lens hood is if the front of the lens rotates when Zoomed and focused. The tulip would not always be in the right orientation.
