Summary: The Canon lens hood fits perfectly and does not wiggle when used. This lens hood fits the 18-135 mm lens that is an option for the Canon D-60 camera. It mounts on the bayonet mount on the outer part of the lens, so it does not interfere with any filter. Before you purchase this lens hood, go to the Canon web site and verify which lens hood you need. [...
Summary: Well, It is just a piece of plastic, right? Not exactly! I bought the third party one from Precision Design which has nothing to do with precision. In fact, it does not fit well on the lens and never locks, I mean, it should lock on the lens when you turn it to the side. Canon charges a lot for its original hood and I definitely think that it should be supplied with the lens! Acting like this, Canon is just playing too much tight.
Summary: This does what it is supposed to do. Make sure it can fit in your camera bag while it is still attached to the lens if that's what you intend to do. It is not small and extra space in your bag is necessary.
Summary: I bought this lens hood instead of "generic" brands because it got better reviews and it's made by my lens manufacturer. The fit seems a little tight and I've had some trouble using it (I'm used to my old Tamron lens and hood) but it is very good quality and is meant to go with my lens.
Summary: ...if it wasn't for the vignetting. Just be careful when using it. Vignetting can be reduced through some fast post processing, although many photographers would rarher not do that. The hood fits perfectly on the lens. Using a hood makes you more noticeable...also an unwanted secondary effect to many photographers. All in all, its a must buy: some vignette can be tolerated; but the flare can totally damage your pics.
A cure for circling the end of the lens with your hand!

Summary: Sometimes I like a bit of artistic sun flare but I was finding many times where I was trying to hold the camera and take a picture while shading the lens with one hand. Not a real comfortable position. The lens hood makes the lens bulkier and takes a second to put on but it is worth it in my opinion.
Summary: Great Canon Quality and B&H service. The team work that I have come to expect and why I don't shop around. I get what I pay for at the most competitive price and in the fastest time possible. The lens hood was made to fit perfectly and certainly heavy enough to last me a lifetime. One unexpected bonus is that the hood on the 17-85 lens is just the right height to let me set my 20D camera on a flat surface and the camera and hood form their own tripod.
