Canon EW-63II Lens Hood for EF 28mm f/1.8, 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 & II Lenses

You Pay: $24.95

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

    Works as expected - stable, durable and easily bayoneted on/off.

    It's a lens hood. It does what you would expect.

    However, it doesn't snap on my Canon 28mm 1.8 as nicely as for example the hood that came with my 70-200mm. This hood fits all right, but at times it's a squeeze and doesn't rotate as smoothly going on or coming off.

    The velvet is a nice touch. I mainly have it on for protection because the 28mm 1.8 has a rectangular shade built in to the front element.

    If I were to go back in time, I would be about 60/40 in buying this hood again, since it doesn't seem like such a must have any more.

      I recently picked up the canon 28mm f1.8 lens. I found that the hood would be perfect addition to already great lens. It attaches well and is very secure, does its job as designed and I am very happy with my purchase.

        Comments about Canon EW-63 II Lens Hood:

        When I originally purchased my EF lenses, they were for still photography. Now, I also use them for my Canon C100 when shooting professional video. The lens hood helps control corner light and also adds some important visual substance to the look of the lens on the C100. The lens snaps on firmly, just like the hood on the 24-105mm lens. It is definitely worth the price.

          Considering that I use this lens for landscape mostly (full sensor camera), I should had bought this lens hood months ago!
          It is a must have, with the great Canon quality!

              I use this lens hood to minimize lens flare and to protect my camera lens.

              I only wish it also came with an instruction sheet as to how to most easily attach it correctly.

              Great price and great service, as always, from B&H made this purchase a no-brainer.

                  It was ok til it stopped clicking and locking into place. It just freewheels now which sometimes causes opposite corner vignetting. I haven't seen this happen before. It was my best fitting hood but it should last.

                          I bought this lens hood for my 28mm. Its great, it helps protect the lens, it does its job. If your reading this then just buy it already, its great. I looked at the cheaper knock offs online and they are poor quality, most of the time with no felt inside the hood. This is a pretty good price, just buy it.

                            I would suggest to pay the extra money to get the Canon lens instead of the other makes available for cheaper.

                                Maybe it's just a lens hood, but it has been out of stock everywhere for months. I purchased a third party hood because I couldn't wait any longer, and I hated it!! It was so tight to put on, and it did NOT go on in reverse for storage. This original hood from Canon goes on nice & smoothly, and mount backwards like I wanted, definitly worth the extra money.....when it is available to purchase

                                Very useful to control flare during night shots. Easy to shift framing slightly to introduce or remove flare from oblique lighting sources.

                                  This is a very sturdy lens hood, with a very nice finish. Generally, it gives you a feel of good quality, even though it's plastic. Of course it does a better job of eliminating excess light and flare on a 35mm sensor.

                                    You pay more for the Canon branded product but it is much better quality. You get what you pay for. Fits perfect.
