If you have a Canon EF 50mm F1.8 lens you want this lens hood, especially if you're shooting outdoors, or in crowded areas (takes the brunt of impact from people bumping into your lens).

The adaptor is made out of metal, and fits perfectly with the 50mm lens. No forcing necessary. The hood itself is made out of plastic. The plastic is fairly thick and seems to be quite sturdy. One gripe is the release mechanism. It is hard to get the hood off and on to the hood adapter, it takes a bit of wiggling to get it right.

I only rate it a four star because it is a bit overpriced for a bit of plastic. But considering the price of the EF 50mm lens, together they are a great deal.

Lens hoods are very useful accessories to have on every lens. Not only do they block out non-image causing light, they protect the lens from bumps, debris, and moisture. This particular lens hood does not have the best design. This is partly due to the design of the lens too. The adapter ring for this hood screws into the threads for filters, and the hood clips onto this adapter. The hood has two buttons, one on either side, which must be pushed in order to retract the locking mechanism to install or detach the hood. It does take some practice to get the hood on and off of the adapter ring quickly. The reason I only gave this 3 stars is because the design could be better. The focusing ring for this lens (50mm f/1.8) is very small, and I wish that the hood could be spun to focus this lens. The hood is shaky on the adapter, but it will not fall off. By shaky, i mean that it wiggles around, and feels loose. The adapter ring is solid, and constructed of metal. Although it is not the best design, it still functions and does the job that it was meant to do.

    Comments about Canon ES-62 Lens Hood with HD Adapter 62Lens Hood:

    I'll agree with other reviewers in that the lens hood is underwhelming as far as quality is concerned. It's not something that will hold up long under normal wear and tear. For the time being the lens hood will suffice, but I will look into getting a tulip. Otherwise, it's a fine product that I would recommend to anyone wanting a lens hood option for their 50.

      I use this on my 55mm lens. As others have noted, it is flimsy and is awkward to add and remove the hood to the adapter. I always feel like I am going to break it. However, once on, it does the job.

        It does what it supposed to do. Easy to take on and off. It doesn't obstruct the lens cap. And, it shades the lens. I guess all I need to do now is drop the lens and see if the hood protects it like advertised... :)

          I use this lens hood on my EF50mm f/1.8 II canon lens. It does what it is suppose to do and is worth the little extra $. Was kinda worried about it being in two pieces but the lens hood is very sturdy and well built and easy to put on.

          Works great, just annoying it's 2 pieces I have to put together. I had to figure out you have to push in the 2 side buttons on the outer hood to release it from the connector ring. Does the job though!

                Bought this for my new (to me) 50mm lens. It's the first time I've bought a lens hood for a lens this size, so it's probably just my ignorance...I'm not crazy about this product. To use it, I have to screw on the adapter and then connect the hood. Not hard work, just an extra thing to think about and the adapter is an extra piece to have to carry around and worry about losing when I'm out doing street photography. Not a reflection on the quality of the product and it would probably be fine for someone else.

                    This should have came with the lens. Nonetheless, I am glad wiht my purchase. This really keeps unwanted glare away from the filter and lens in sunny/bright conditions. The pastic is durable. My only gripe would be its a bit of a pain to get hte hood on and off the adapter, other than that its a must buy.

                      I didn't pay alot for this, so I did not expect a mega quality device. It is a bit finnicky and seems fragile when you try to clip it off an on. I have only had it for a while, so all is ok, so far. However, I truly wonder if it will break with regular use.

                      Also, I have never had a lens hood, so I have nothing to compare it to.

                            It's perfectly mated with the 50mm lens. Don't get the cheaper version that friction fit, this is the real deal and it's great.
