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.

Does the Job
Good bang for the buck as it does what it is intended to do with no quality issues. My only gripe is that it is a little hard to get started on the stab lugs but once there it is just fine.

This Adorama knock-off looks like the Canon ET-65B hood, but it doesn't function like one. It's cheaply made and would not screw onto the lens. The Canon hood attached very easily, but it cost more. The knock-off went right into the garbage, [...]. Spend the extra $30 and get the Canon.I've tried other Adorama hoods that have worked well, so it was surprising and disappointing to find this one did not.

This product is not bad for the price! The only difference I see with this and the "real" Canon product is the felt flocking on the interior of the hood, which Canon adds to greatly reduce the possibility of glare to the lens from the plastic. This unline replacement product I feel would still have a small bit of reflection capable of bouncing off the bare plastic into the lens if the glare was quite strong. Overall, not a bad choice for the budget conscious photographer. You could line it yourself easily enough.
The Adorama lens hood is a great value above the Canon version. It fits the Canon 70-300 IS USM lens perfectly, locks in place securely and reverses on the lens for storage. It's plenty sturdy and represents a true value for the cost.
I use this hood for landscape and wildlife photos
The quality is much improved from the same hood I purchased two years ago. Easy install & take off with secure attachment.
its perfect for waht i need it for
Using a lens hood means one less thing to worry about when constantly changing positions.
Other than being a little difficult to attach and detach (tight threading) this is an awesome lens hood.
Great economy lens hood. Fits & performs like the OEM.
For the difference in price between this and the namebrand I could purchase 5 'noname' lenshoods, of course when I've been out & about I've eyeballed other 'name' lenshoods other than the "emblazoned" name I don't see any difference
