Nikon Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR announced

Right, there was nobody saying "an effective hood".

That wasn't the point. You'll admit that it's impossible to design an effective hood for any kind of super zoom, no matter what brand. It's not something you can blame on Nikon...

To me, a hood serves two functions: protection from stray light, but also a physical protection of the front lens.

The point was: unlike in other cases (the Z DX zooms, for example, and some AF-S DX zooms, too) it's at least included and not offered as a separate and overpriced additional purchase.

They're ok, in my eyes. Plastic, but not the cheap kind. Robust enough and do not easily show marks and scratches (like all the Canon hoods from a while ago). Nothing to get excited about (it's just a hood), but they do the job.
