It will fit but will not lock or stay in place without taping it to the lens. The HB-7 already does its job, do you want a petal hood just for decoration purposes? You might get some vignetting because the hood was not made for that lens.

Yes, for a nicer look.

I believe vignetting is lowdue to the 1.5X crop factor.

Sorry, I meant the opposite: less coverage of the lens because the hood was not made for the lens, meaning light might get in from the petal openings and possibly induce contrast reducing flare - which will not be minimized at all by the DX sensor from your camera.
