Excerpt: So yes, this is a lens hood and does all the things you'd expect from a lens hood! Amazing! My only complaint is the original (the same product) wore out after 3 years and wouldn't stay permanently attached to the camera - it just spun around and fell off at inopportune times.
Excerpt: I searched the internet looking for this hood. There were several bad reviews for a knock-off hood, and I wanted to make sure I got the genuine item. I checked prices and B & H was competitively priced, plus they had it in stock. The hood was just what I wanted.
