A lens hood or lens shade is a device used on the end of a lens to block the sun or other light source in order to prevent glare and lens flare. It is recommended to have lens hoods on all your lenses for this reason, as well as protection.
One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles.
