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.

Well designed and necessary item. It's just that nearly $50 for a simple piece of plastic is a bit much.
I just finishing going through hundreds of foliage shots, moose and lake scenes I took in the last month here in Maine. The lens hood on my Canon 20 - 35 mm L series lens was obviously a perfect fit and never impeded a shot. It actually kept out annoying glare and enabled me to go full F2.8 in low light. Adorama once again delivered [...] at a price that can't be beaten. Thank you.
