Excerpt: I use the lens hood to protect the lens. To enclose the subject that I want to photograph. To keep out unwanted light . The product does a very good job of taking care of these items. The disadvantage is that it falls off a little easily. The slightest jar often will cause it to come off of the lens.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Improves Function, Lightweight
Excerpt: You get what you pay for, and in this case per example, nothing works better than the original manufacturar equipment, so no unforeseen issues occur. And the fact that B&H has the original equipment on hand, is one further reason to return here to purchase photographic equipment, and and great service.
Excerpt: When I bought my canon lens used, it didn't have the lens hood. I purchased a generic lens hood and have always had trouble getting it to stay on the lens. This one works perfectly! I highly recommend the extra pennies be put into buying a lens hood that is the same brand as the lens, what a difference!
