Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. HB-38 Lens Hood

Question

I plan on using a circular polarizer on the 105mm micro lens. Will I need to remove the lens hood in order to manipulate the polarizing ring?

Also, am I correct in assuming that using a 77mm to 62mm step-down adapter for the filter will conflict with the lens hood?

I am using a 62mm polarizing filter on my 105mm micro vr lens with the HB-38 hood mounted. While looking through the viewfinder, I manipulate the filter ring by reaching around the front of the hood, extending a finger into the hood, and moving the ring with my fingertip, being careful not to touch glass. The maneuver is a bit awkward, but it works.

I am currently researching the feasibility of using the Nikon HN-30 screw-on hood in lieu of the HB-38 hood in the hope that screwing the hood to the outer ring of the polarizing filter will allow me to turn the ring by grasping the hood. However, the HN-30 is designed for a 200mm focal length lens, and the hood might be too deep for the 105mm lens, resulting in vignetting.

You may leave the hood if your filter is precisely 62mm; but if you have a larger 77mm on an adapter, you'll indeed need to remove the hood.

Don't know about the HB-38, but the HB-22 is the correct lens hood for the micro nikkor 85mm 2.8.I doubt the HB-38 would fit, the HB-38 is for the AFS 105mm micro which takes 62mm filters and the 85mm pce micro takes 77mm filters.
