Hood Fits Nikon

Hood Fits Nikon
"I can use a lens hood HB-34 in a non-VR Nikkor 55mm-18?

Im getting a Nikon D40 in a few days and I want a flower pedal hood type in it. until Now all I have seen that is built specifically for that purpose is a normal lens hood round. if an adjustment of HB-34 custom, could you tell me what flower pedal hood would fit. Thanks in advance for your help!

There are pedal to the lens hood if you want one, you can use a generic like that this link, but not the lens bayonet, like bells of other Nikon. This screws into the filter threads. http://cgi.ebay.com/52mm-Flower-Petal-Lens-Hood-for-Nikon-Canon-Sigma-Sony_W0QQitemZ270400398422QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLens_Accessories?hash=item3ef51ea456&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65:12|66 : 2 | 39:1 | 72:2096 | 240:1318 | 301:1 | 293:1 | 294:50 hood HB-34 is designed for the 55-200 mm lens, so that bullets will its 18-55 mm lens, except the focal length of 55 mm
