  1. For who it may concern:

    the Nikon 80-200mm 2.8 AF-S hood (HB-17) is discontinued and almost impossible
    to find.
    I went to B&H today and took my 80-200mm 2.8 AF-S and try the hood for the
    70-200mm 2.8VR (HB-29) and IT FIT perfectly, even lock into place.

    So if buying a used 80-200mm 2.8 AF-S w/o hood or the hood of your need
    replacement there you have a alternative to the discontinued HB-17..
    PS: IT DOESN'T FIT THE 80-200mm 2.8D AF (two rings).

    hope it helps someone, I was looking for this same info some time ago and wasn't
    able to find any concrete answer..:)


    Just in case you want to see the difference between the AF-D and the AF-S..;)

  2. I did something similar when I bought the Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 VR. I did not
    like the long hood that came with it because I use a Lowepro TLZ2 holster bag and HB-36 in
    place is too long, I want my camera immediately accessible. The is more for protection than
    light refraction. I looked around for a shorter one and found that the HB-28 fit, only slightly
  3. Thanks Juanjo, I was looking for a replacement and did a google search and this post came up. I was also thinking of the 28-70 AF-S lens hood but had no way to try it.
