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.

This really is a great replacement for so much less $$ to the original. I found it to not be quite as easy to attach to the lens but it really is minimally different. The quality is excellent and the anti relective liner in the hood is good quality. Worth the money and definitely worth the cost savings as opposed to buying one from Canon...
Does what it should at a cheaper price than the Canon.
