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.

I always use a hood. This hood with the velvet like inner lining traps the stray light like no aftermarket can.
Not much to say other than it's a lens hood. It does the trick. The only thing that could make it better is a locking tab that locks it to the lens, but I haven't seen that but on my Nikkor lenses. Other than that, it works as advertised.
