About Adorama

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.

Works great

While I have Canon lens hoods for some of my lenses I went with the Adorama Hood because of the significance in the cost difference. Adorama was much less. I can't tell any difference between the quality of this hood and the Canon hoods. I will definitely order more Adorama lens hoods when I need them.

works for what it's designed for

By

Easy to install and works well. Only problem I have is putting on the lens cap with the hood installed. because of the size it is difficult to get your fingers in to install and remove the cover.

Why spend more on the OEM one?

By

Perfect fit for my 50mm 1.8 on my 5D Mark II. Looks great and performs as expected!!!

Very good for the Price

By

I bought this lens hood in place of the canon hood just becasue canon is way more costly. This hood does what it is supposed to do. It screws on to the front filter thread of the lens. There is no vignetting with this hood on (on an APS-C sensor). There is no internal thread built into the hood, so if you want to use a filter like a polarizer or UV or ND, then you have to first put the filter on the lens. Then screw the hood on the front thread of the filter. With one filter on the lens I did not see any vignetting on APS-C when this hood is used. Since there is no internal thread, it is difficult to put the lens cap on while the hood is still on the lens. You can put the cap but it is just held onto the inside of the hood by friction only. I am satisfied with the purchase.

Nice fit and finish

Fit well construction is nice overall and it's a bit thicker than the 50mm hood I purchased. No complaints!

Inexpensive, it works fine. No need to spend $20+ on the original canon hood

simple and self explanitory

By

A little finicky to attach but you get what you pay for. A great price but the only complaint i have is that you cant put it on the lens backwards when not in use, but you get what you pay for. no other complaints does exactly as advertised and does a swell job of it

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is it possible to use a filter and lens cover with this all at the same time?
SYBIL M  There is only one thread available to attach either the filter or the lens hood, but not both. The lens cover will still fit.
