Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) This review is from: GSI Super Quality Lens Hood for CANON EF 50mm f/1.8 II and CANON EF 50mm f/1.8 Lenses - Functions Exactly as the Canon ES-62, Provides Protection from Light and Impact (Electronics) the hood serves well for it's purpose. my only concern with this hood it that the adapter that connects the hood to the lens is plastic, compared the canon version which is metal.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) this one isn't exactly like the branded version, and it can only screw on; though I couldn't imagine paying 30 dollars for a piece of plastic. this one goes for 10 and gets the job done. the plastic even feels pretty sturdy like its quality stuff.
Summary: This product does exactly as it says. It's a hood cover for the Canon 50mm lens. The ONLY thing I dislike about it is the hood itself isn't very sturdy. When you press the buttons on the side to slip it onto the adapter, it squishes the lens hood so it's no longer a perfect circle. Making it a bit difficult to get on. I was scared at first trying to take it on/off thinking I might break it.
Summary: I bought the lens hood to sharpen up my pictures by eliminating reflected light. It makes a noticeable difference at a small cost. I wish the hood was made with a more rugged plastic. When putting the hood onto the lens, you must squeeze the sides to retract tabs on the hood. The whole hood bends, making it harder to fit onto the included adapter. Otherwise, a good addition that offers nice protection for your lens.
Pros: Good Lens Protection, Improves Function, Lightweight
Summary: Lens hoods are very useful accessories to have on every lens. Not only do they block out non-image causing light, they protect the lens from bumps, debris, and moisture. This particular lens hood does not have the best design. This is partly due to the design of the lens too. The adapter ring for this hood screws into the threads for filters, and the hood clips onto this adapter.
