    ive got a question why do certain lenses have the flower effect around the lens? does it give a different effect?

    o and where did you manage to trade in you lens for a different one?

    i traded it in at my local camera shop, they gave me 500 for it which was alot less than i wanted but i had no offers locally.

    the end peice is called a lens hood, it prevents light rays from street lights and the sun from making flares on your photo. it also acts as a protector if you drop your camera.
