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 lost my original hood down a canyon while horseback riding in AZ. This replacement hood is exactly like the original and fits perfectly. I just couldn't justify saving a few dollars for another brand that I didn't know would work or fit very well. Better safe than sorry, and I am definitely not sorry.
