Excerpt: The HB-45 snaps on for a perfect fit. Would not consider any other lens hood for your 18-55mm kit lens.Has two spring loaded buttons on each side which must be depressed for removal. No problem. Great lens hood.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Perfect Fit Durable, Reliable
Excerpt: Works perfect for what I need it for and what it is designed for. Shades my lens and protects it from bumps. It fits in my camera case with the hood attached. It snaps onto the lens quickly and easily.
