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.

            What more can be said about these lens hoods? I love 'em, they're well built and won't let you down. Just make sure this is the correct hood for the lens you'll be using, they're purpose built for a specific set of lenses, make sure you match the hood to the lens.

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

                                          Twists right on the front of the lens, locks up tight and does the job just like it should... No problems and no complaints at all!

                                            I bought this lens hood for my Canon 55-250MM telephoto lens. It is exactly what I wanted to do the job on bright sunny days. I did not want an after market lens hood because of the quality and sometimes fitting problems. This lens hood is perfect.

                                              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.

                                              I purchased to help keep the sun out of shooting some local football events to my 70-300 Cannon lens. Works well and helps to keep the sun out of the lens.

                                                Canon quality. Better than the cheap off brands. Clicks on firmly, and doesn't look like it will crack easily.
