When using the lens hood that came with the 18-105mm lens there is a half circle shadow at the bottom of each photo. This is cause by the hood. When I take it off it is no longer a problem.

The solution is to not use the lens hood but I am curious as to why using what is provided with the lens would produce a problem such as this. I assume the lens is seeing the bottom part of the hood. I have checked and the hood is on property as far as I can tell.

PS: Not sure if this should be in the D7000 forum or the Nikon lens forum. This is the lens that came with the D7000.
