About Canon ES62

One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles. Almost all EF and TS-E lenses have a Canon lens hood engineered specifically for it.

Nice little hood

It does its job.

Not really worth it

I bought this to help reduce flares in my nifty fifty photos. The hood requires an additional mount to attach to the front element, strike one. There are 4 attachment clips that retract when you squeeze the two side buttons. However when I squeeze mine only 3 out of 4 retract, strike two. Lastly, it is a pain to get onto the hood mount, requiring a few tries before it catches, strike three. When this flimsy thing eventually breaks I'm going to try the rubber hood.

Good but a little pricey

I leave this hood on the lens at all times for protection.

Great lens protector

I like the hard custom hoods and Canon's gets it right with there's. The none reflective inner linning makes them a must. I have used the fexible one because they were a lot less expensive… but you get what you pay for. So, once I went to custom hood, I have not went back.

Even a " Kit" lens needs protection

By

from New York, NY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

For guerrilla DSLR filmmaking, you find yourself doing quick setups and banging things around. I have nice lenses—and those generally come with lens hoods. My knock around, do-it-all kit ones didn't. And busting up a Multi-purpose lens while on location while you're traveling light can ruin a shoot day. This little 58mm hood has already saved my bacon at least twice when things got hairy. It's not overly obtrusive, does a good job against fringing and protects my 58mm lenses quite nicely. It's not terribly expensive and is a worthwhile investment.

Meh...it's ok

By

from Abilene, TX  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Used with 50 and 40mm canon lenses. It works. The clips that hold it seem flemsy and cheap and feel like they might break easily.

Needed accessory

By

from Austin, TX  -  Semi-Professional

Every lens should have a lens hood, they are needed to cut down on flair, while I'm annoyed that Canon doesn't provide one with the 50mm f/1.8, I'm glad I was able to pick up one.

Great protection against flare and doors

By

from San Francisco, CA  -  Semi-Professional

A very simple piece of equipment for your 50mm f/1.8 II, yet functional and effective. I notice a dramatic cut in lens flare. No more using my hand as a lens hood (though that works well, too). Very cheap (here at least) and is almost durable. It will take a bang on door frames pretty well and still stay intact. It just feels a little cheap—at least the actual hood part. The adapter ring is solid metal, which is a nice touch. Overall, if you have the new 50mm 1.8, get the lens hood. Besides its functionality, it also makes your lens look more "pro" and people will take you more seriously. It's a sad, but true fact. To many non-photographers (and some photographers), your equipment usually says a lot about you. So, this will give you points.
