...but I'm new, so here it goes. Nikon makes a lens hood for their Coolpix cameras. It is a HN-CP17. It is 40.5mm and takes 58mm filters. Not bad for the 16-50 Kit Zoom!! They also make a 40.5 UV. Bad pic, I wouldn't stack them like this, but you get the idea. The hood is good protection for the lens when the camera is swinging on a strap.
