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.
The Canon EW-65B is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Canon EW-65B: Durable, Easy to use and Lightweight

HAVING USED THE LENS FOR SOME TIME NOW AND FOUND IT TO BE EXCELLENT. I RATED IT A 4 ONLY BECAUSE OF THE PRICE AND BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHEN ORDERING. I ONLY LOOKED UP THE HOOD FOR A 24MM LENS BUT INSTEAD OF ORDERING IT ON LINE I CALLED ON THE ORDER. IF YOU HAVE AN IS LENS IT USES A SPECIAL HOOD BE SURE TO TELL THE AGENT YOU HAVE THE IS LENS. THE HOOD FITS GOOD AND IS MADE EXCELLENT. I RECOMMEND IT FOR THE CANON LENS.
i needed a hood for my 24mm lens and found this one from canon a little pricey so i gave it a 4 rating. the hood is well made as you would expect from canon. i use it mostly in the field to protect the lens and cut down glare from the side. for those reasons and the fact it fits perfect i would rate it a 5
The lens hood is well built and attaches to the lens securely with a release button. One of the better implemented lens hoods in the Canon line up. If you own one of the lenses, this hood works well.
I like the locking mechanism; just wish Canon didn't price it so high.
