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 at a low price
This product simply does the job and does it well. I started using it on a bright sunny day, shooting a football game. My photographs came out great while my husbands had a hazy cast to his photographs, I had the lens hood his didn't. Good test, we both have the same kind of camera.

Good for protection
$10 cheaper than the Canon brand lens hood. Really used for protection because stray light is not so much of a problem on 1.6 crop body. It fits slightly off-center, so on a full frame, that would be problematic. Otherwise, don't waste the extra $10 on the Canon, this one does just fine.

Quality material, fits and works well all for a good price. What else could you want?
AS usual the transaction was flawless and the lens hood fits better than the canon that I lost.
It is difficult to align the threads and secure the hood to the lens. If it's bumped it still falls off. Next time I would just go with the Canon hood that was designed for the lens. Just trying to save a few bucks. Didn't work out so great this time.
Arrived promptly and works very well. Thanks!
Great fit. No need to spend more money on the "Canon" product.
CAn't tell the differene from the Canon original. Much better price.
Nice lens hood for my kit lens, and far less expensive than the actual Canon lens hood.
GIven the price of Canon's lens hood, this is certainly a better buy...even though it's a bit tricky to attach. With a little practice, it's fine and definitely serves the purpose.
In sunlite it works great
