I bought the ET-60 lens hood for the 75->300 mm kit zoom lens bundled with the Canon Rebel XT I purchased about two years ago. Of the several lenses I have purchased for this camera, this is the only one where I get inconsistant results. The main problem I seem to have is that the light meter seems to think there is more light available than exists and results in under-exposed pictures. This happens more often at the 300mm end of zooming. I assumed that too much light is getting in from the side. I tried a rubber screw-in hood and that did not seem to help much. The Canon seems to help a lot, is inexpensive, and is easy to use. I think that a hood should probably be standard with all lenses over 100mm. I should have purchased this when I bought the lens. It is made of thin plastic, so care should be taken to avoid breaking it,

I purchased this hood for my 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS EF-S USM LENS. I expected the inside to be felt lined which it was not. The fit is fine but it is basically a [$] piece of plastic. This quality of hood should be furnished with the lens as part of the package.

                I had one and broke it! I decided I did not need to spend any $$$ on a new one. So for the past year and a half I've been shooting digital photo without a hood and my pictures have looked like a child shooting into the sun or worse!This hood really helps you focus on your subject and contain light the way you want your pictures to look

                              I have just started using lens hoods. They are great for cutting glare when taking pictures outside. I ordered the Canon hood since I knew it would fit my Canon 55-250mm lens exactly with no light leakage. I like that the hood can be turned around on the lens for storage.

                                  Bought this lens hood, to use with my Canon EF-S 55-250 MM and it works perfectly well, although I do not use it always. I decided to buy Canon original instead of a generic brand, because of the quality reputation and I don't like to use non Canon accessories on my Canon equipment. Only problem is that Canon should sell the hood together with the lens and not separately.

                                        Experience with my Canon 7D has taught that only Canon brand hoods precisely fit.

                                        Bought this for my wife's Rebel. Fits great. No problems.

                                              I bought it for my new 55-250 lens. It would have been cheaper to buy a generic, but I always buy Canon accessories

                                                Sturdy, fits well on the lens, no vignetting on my 55-250. Shots looks great!

                                                  Product is as described. The fit to the lens is snug and secure. It is a Canon product not an inexpensive knock-off.

                                                  I decided on a genuine Canon product and not an after market job. It bayonets in place and if you turn it around, it can stay on the lens with the lens cap on.

                                                    I used It to keep the glare out and it did great The only bad thing is when changing the lenses you have to change the hoood
