Excerpt: Thought I would save some money by purchasing a 3rd party lens for my new Canon 60mm f2.8 macro lens. BIG mistake! Although it would seem like a very simple thing to duplicate this was not the case. Fit was so tight I couldn't get it on the lens properly.
Excerpt: Keeps out the extra light. Strudy. Easy to take off if it is in the way on a macro shot. With extention tubes - the hood can start to get in the way. Hood is great when using the lens for a protrait or landscape type shot. All my Canon hoods have black felt inside - this one is the same way.
