Excerpt: I'll agree with other reviewers in that the lens hood is underwhelming as far as quality is concerned. It's not something that will hold up long under normal wear and tear. For the time being the lens hood will suffice, but I will look into getting a tulip.
Excerpt: It does what it supposed to do. Easy to take on and off. It doesn't obstruct the lens cap. And, it shades the lens. I guess all I need to do now is drop the lens and see if the hood protects it like advertised... :)
Excerpt: I use this lens hood on my EF50mm f/1.8 II canon lens. It does what it is suppose to do and is worth the little extra $. Was kinda worried about it being in two pieces but the lens hood is very sturdy and well built and easy to put on.
Excerpt: Works great, just annoying it's 2 pieces I have to put together. I had to figure out you have to push in the 2 side buttons on the outer hood to release it from the connector ring. Does the job though!
