Leica Hood for 28mm f/2.0 ASPH (11604)
SKU: 799429124519 Mfg Code: 12451
Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. Since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact. Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. This hood also includes the front cap for the lens hood.
