"D50 + filter + hood... dumb question"


Camberley, GB
          

Please excuse what is probably a dumb question(s).. also not sure if I should be posting this on the D50 section but here goes.
I've just purchased (but not to be opened until Christmas) a D50 with the standard 18-55 lens kit.
I am considering adding some front of lens protection by getting a 52mm UV filter. Will I create any problems by doing this? My current intention is to keep the filter "permanently" on.

I am also considering getting a Hoya (or maybe a Hama) rubber multihood which I understand can be adjusted for wide angle, standard and telephoto settings. Will I have any problems with this? Is it right that I would have to remove the hood if using the internal flash?
In addition, there appears to be a question on whether the lens cap will then clip onto the lens with the hood attached?

Am I right in thinking that in this scenario the filter would screw to the lens, and then the hood screw to the filter? and not the other way around.

Sorry again for so many dumb questions ... great site btw.

Putting a good quality UV filter on your lens won't cause any problems at all and it can be left on permanently if you wish.

I've no experience with the Hoya lens hood so I can't say how well it will work but there's a good chance that it might not work well with the internal flash at wider angles.

If you have a good filter like Hoya, Nikon, etc the hood will be able to screw in to the top of the filter.

I tried an aftermarket lens hood on mine. screwed on top of the filter. even with the filter pulled back, I got this at 18mm

it was caused by the ring on top of the filter,not the hood.

Thanks for the replies. I'll take your advice and order the Nikon hood... HB-33 seems to be the one.

Nipprdog... your photo with the vignetting illustrates the problem I could have got into. I note that the Nikon hood has a bayonet fitting as oppsed to the Hoya which was screw in.

Wise choice. The UV filter shouldn't cause you any vignetting problems on its own, but you can purchase a Hoya Ultra series filter which has been made extra thin for wide angle if you feel you need it. Personally I haven't experienced any problems at 18mm with a standard filter on my 18-70mm lens.

Adding a lens hood on top of the filter, as Nipprdog has shown us, is obviously not a good idea.

So, just to make sure I've understood this correctly.

I should put the Nikon HB-33 directly onto the lens, then screw the filter onto the hood. Is that correct?

The hood probably fastens to the outside of the lens. The filter fastens to the threads on the inside of the lens front.

The hood fits over the filter and does not connect in anyway if it is a bayonet lens hood.

I have a rubber lens hood and got a lot og vignetting at 18mm wide. So no I have switched to the Nikon HB33 hood and dont experience any vignetting at 18mm wide.

A 52mm skylight is a must and I have not yet taken my 52mm skylight off my lens.

Happy clicking
