Great lens protector

  • Excerpt: I like the hard custom hoods and Canon's gets it right with there's. The none reflective inner linning makes them a must. I have used the fexible one because they were a lot less expensive… but you get what you pay for. So, once I went to custom hood, I have not went back.

Even a " Kit" lens needs protection

  • Excerpt: For guerrilla DSLR filmmaking, you find yourself doing quick setups and banging things around. I have nice lenses—and those generally come with lens hoods. My knock around, do-it-all kit ones didn't. And busting up a Multi-purpose lens while on location while you're traveling light can ruin a shoot day. This little 58mm hood has already saved my bacon at least twice when things got hairy.

  • Excerpt: Used with 50 and 40mm canon lenses. It works. The clips that hold it seem flemsy and cheap and feel like they might break easily.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Design

Needed accessory

16 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Every lens should have a lens hood, they are needed to cut down on flair, while I'm annoyed that Canon doesn't provide one with the 50mm f/1.8, I'm glad I was able to pick up one.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Cheap feeling

Great protection against flare and doors

Soyary Christopher, Adorama

  • Excerpt: A very simple piece of equipment for your 50mm f/1.8 II, yet functional and effective. I notice a dramatic cut in lens flare. No more using my hand as a lens hood (though that works well, too). Very cheap (here at least) and is almost durable. It will take a bang on door frames pretty well and still stay intact. It just feels a little cheap—at least the actual hood part. The adapter ring is solid metal, which is a nice touch.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Not Durable

Not really worth it

KIP, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I bought this to help reduce flares in my nifty fifty photos. The hood requires an additional mount to attach to the front element, strike one. There are 4 attachment clips that retract when you squeeze the two side buttons. However when I squeeze mine only 3 out of 4 retract, strike two. Lastly, it is a pain to get onto the hood mount, requiring a few tries before it catches, strike three. When this flimsy thing eventually breaks I'm going to try the rubber hood.
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Design
