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. Otherwise, it's a fine product that I would recommend to anyone wanting a lens hood option for their 50.
Excerpt: I use this on my 55mm lens. As others have noted, it is flimsy and is awkward to add and remove the hood to the adapter. I always feel like I am going to break it. However, once on, it does the job.
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!
Excerpt: Bought this for my new (to me) 50mm lens. It's the first time I've bought a lens hood for a lens this size, so it's probably just my ignorance...I'm not crazy about this product. To use it, I have to screw on the adapter and then connect the hood. Not hard work, just an extra thing to think about and the adapter is an extra piece to have to carry around and worry about losing when I'm out doing street photography.
