Just received the NIKON polarizing filter and the suggested NIKON HN-13 hood for this lens. I'm sending the hood back. I am totally amazed that NIKON would supply this hood for this lens and polarizer combination. You can actually see slight vignetting in the corners of the veiwfinder at 85mm. At 24mm only a small circle in the middle of the screen is viewable. It's like you are looking through a pipe! I don't see how you could use this hood at any focal length.

Best regards,
