Count on B&H

  • Excerpt: I got the EF-S 17-55mm direct from Canon, but no hoods in stock. B&H had them and shipped the same day. Definitely a necessity with this lens as it is prone to flare issues. Hood arrived in great shape, fits perfectly and takes care of the lens flare issue. Thank You B&H!

Very desapointed

  • Excerpt: A year ago when I buy my 17-85 lens, I buy the Vello LHC-ER83J hood to go with, the hood fit very well and is Strong build. The down side is, when the lens is wild open, he does vignetting. So I decide to buy the dedicated Canon hood.

I would by this product again!

  • Excerpt: I have the Vello hood that came with the lens when I bought it. The Vello was prone to lens flare. The felt lining of the Canon seems to have done away with it. The only reason for the 4 rating is that the material is not as heavy as some of my other Canon lens hoods for the price.

  • Excerpt: had to stay with the original Canon Hood as I've done in the past.. why go 'on the cheap' even though the Canon-price is too high( so -1 star out of the 5).. works well for controlling flare
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Felt Inside Hood, Lens Flare Control
  • Cons: C'mon Canon Lower That Pr, Canon-price Too High

  • Excerpt: I bought a cheap-o lens hood for $4 from [*] that was supposed to work for this lens; but it definitely did NOT. You could see the hood through the lens!So I sucked it up and bought this. I immediately noticed the quality of construction, and snug fit to the lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Expensive
