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.

Great lens hood
Besides using a filter to reduce the suns effects, I also use a lens hood. A lens hood is also helpfull when it sprinkles outside.

Easy to use, once I realized it didn't screw on. Does what it's designed to do --- what more can I ask?
I bought this with Canon EF 85/1.8 Lens and it fits perfectly!
I use this item for avoid the lens flare. If you are looking the best gear this is the best lens hood for your lens.
The clip on Lens Hoods of this series of lenses is new to me and I am used to the bayonet lens hoods of more upscale lenses in the Canon line. This lens hood will do one of its jobs well - keeping stray light from hitting the lens objective. However, the build is flimsy and will not protect the front of the lens from mishaps (bumping into the wall or accidental contact with the floor as well as its better made siblings. The clip on feature of these is also not as reliable as the bayonet feature of the more upscale hoods. It feels like it would be easy to knock off, and it is fiddly to put on, take off and reverse. I would recommend it to others because of its functions and because I believe this is the only option for the purpose.
I cannot count the number of times that lens hoods have saved my lens or camera from destruction. Using a tripod on less than stable ground, I have had a camera take a face dive into some rocks. The lens and camera were fine, and the hood got a small scratch in it. I regularly carry my camera on a sling style strap and feel much safer in the knowledge that the front element is protected from bumps. When shooting macro and trying to get really close, the hood also helps me to not get the lens smashed up into or smudged by my subject. Also, when working around children, a lens hood helps keep those curious fingers off the front element. I consistently purchase hoods for any lenses I purchase that do not already come with a hood included. Honestly, the only time I could see not using a lens hood would be in a studio setting where the environment was controlable.
What can I say, it's a canon lens hood for a canon lens... it works perfectly.
A lens hood is an essential accessory, in fact, this should always be part of the package of the lens.
I especially like the way it reverses.Helps to protect the lens.
Its OK (Should have been included with the lens (85mm 1.8)
