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.

Great addition

For the price it's perfect! A little tricky to attach but once on it's perfect. I don't think the Canon version would attach any easier as it's actually the lens itself that doesnt have th ebaynet style hood scew.

Not a good fit - go with the Canon OEM

It doesn't fit very well on the Canon 85mm f1.8. I wish I had purchased the OEM hood instead.

Not to happy with this

By

from Tampa, Florida  -  Semi-pro Photographer

With this lens hood I was very disapointed. First it doesn't screw on like the others and it always fall off when you accidentally hit it with anything. Not to happy looking for another kind to used.

Nice hood

By

from Central America  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The hood is very nice, seems to be durable it doesn't feel cheap, although it is. It attaches very easily to the lens (85mm in my case). The only thing that I don't like is the model number printed on it (ET-65 III) it looks bad.

Annoying but fine.

By

from Oklahoma  -  Casual Photographer

It does a good job. It's tricky to attach and is fairly flimsy, but it's what you get for the price.

By

If I had the choice, I would buy the Canon hood, as it fits better.

Light &durable for difficult conditions

By

from Austin, TX  -  Semi-Professional

Light and easy to use under rough conditions. May not be durable. Does not give max cover to lens.

Doesn't fit securely

By

from NYC  -  Professional

The hood has to be wrestled into place, and once there, its clips don't fit properly into the groove on the lens, so it's not locked into place and is easily knocked off the lens by any minor jostling. Useless. A $5 rubber screw-on would be better.

difficult to install

By

from amman /jordan  -  Semi-Professional

clips looks weak and breakable...difficult to install every time ...but it's the only choice you have since the canon hood is on back order from the Mfr. for more than 4 months...anyway,,install it carefully,be gentle with the clips and everything will be fine ..it will do the purpose.
