Bought this hood after 9 months and realized what I was missing, its incredible how you can experience better light/distance sensitiveness. Must have, recommended.

If you do not have this on your lens, stop what you are doing and go get one. Your wonderful "kit" lens needs this little added protection as well as the preventative against lens flare, period. The lens may be inexpensive but it's one of the best lenses Nikon produces. Do you have your's yet?

Can't get this to attach to my AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 3.5-5.6GII

I recently purchased this lens hood for my D3200 with the AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 3.5-5.6GII lens. I can't get it to stay on the lens. It doesn't snap on, there doesn't seem to be a way to mount it. What am I missing?
Response from Nikon:By Nikon USA SupportMay 6, 2015
The HB-45 is the correct lens hood for the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II Lens but it will not fit on the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Lens. The correct hood for the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Lens is the HB-69. If you are having trouble attaching the HB-45 to the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II Lens Lens please contact Nikon Support at 1-800-NikonUS.
