Excerpt: This is a ok hood. The Canon 85 1.8mm lens is not one of Canon more pricier lens, and I fine the lens OK. The more you expect the more something is going to cost. This is my opinion. I am ok about this hood.
Excerpt: Bought this as the Vello was really too flimsy for me. This one i better but honnestly not much, and it doesn't fit snug. This is the only lens with which I have such issues, maybe the lens isn't well designed in terms of receiving a hood. Reverse mounting for stowage isn't great either.
Cons: Difficult To Use, Not Functional, Poor Design
Excerpt: Purchased at the same time as my Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens. Helps protect the lens and decreases flare. Only criticism is that the attaching mechanism is a squeeze type versus the L series screw-on.
Excerpt: The build quality and interior coating all seem good enough, and the lens hood does a great job of cutting down sun flare. My only gripe is the snap-on design. Why Canon didn't stick to the previous screw-on mounting design found on the 50mm 1.4 hood is puzzling.
Excerpt: I tried an aftermarket hood for my 100 1: 2 and it was awful. Limped by for a long time, but finally slapped leather and drew some green.... Price was what you'd expect from Canon. Fits well, covers the glass, no more, no less. Should have bought it WAY earlier than I did..
Excerpt: Good for protecting the front element. I got it so I can take it in and out of my bag on location and not have to worry about caps. The pinch design is a little flimsy compared to the twist on hoods for my other lenses, I could see it breaking easy. That being said, mine has held up great.
