Canon EW-78BII Lens Hood for EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens

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.

Apart from regular landscape , floral and company photos I take, EW 78B lens hood has been a big help with most of my macro studio lighting shots. We normally use a black board cut and pasted to the extender of all our tripods. It shields the slave lights (including under the glass table lighting). Adding this tool had helped me remove stray lights and focus on the light needed for our specimen.

The hood is made of plastic and it tends to bend and adjust with the other contents in my lowepro bag. I don't know if it will warp if I keep it long enough in there specially when travelling. Carrying it vertically gives me that apprehension. So far it has served its purpose.

If there's a company that would make a bag for all lens hood of different sizes with sturdy sides that would be great.

Is it worth the price? I bought it because I couldn't find a cheap alternative. My experience with a collapsable rubber hood on my Ef75-300 was not good. It fell of when it bumped against something, which was often, and it tore at the fold.

The EF 28-135 is my basic walk-around lens and it on my camera about 80 percent of the time, and I am rarely without my camera. The hood doesn't pop off when it bumps into solid objects and it's not going to tear.

Still, it's an awful lot of money for a piece of plastic. Lens hoods should be provided with each lens, like other lens manufacturers.

      Comments about Canon EW-78B II Lens Hood:

      I always, ALWAYS buy Canon brand lens hoods for my Canon lenses despite the fact that they are always 3 times more expensive. However, I don't mind paying a little more because the quality is sturdy, and will protect my lens that I have invested in.

      When it comes to protecting your Canon lenses, do you really want some cheapie version of a hood?

                  Fits the 28-135 lens perfectly. However, when reversed on lens if shield not needed, gets in the way of zooming. One can zoom, but the shield covers portion of the zoom ring.

                                I recently bought a Canon 28-135mm lens and purchased this Lens Hood to go with it. I won't shoot without a lens hood. This hood works perfectly with the lens it was designed for. I've tried off brand lens hoods before and in my experience they aren't worth buying. I'll only buy the lens hood that the actual manufacturer makes for the lens.

                                Comments about Canon EW-78B II Lens Hood:

                                The EW-78BII lens hood seems to have eliminated or at least reduced the lens flair of my 28mm shots, which is what I had hoped. I find the hood fits very snuggly, which makes it feel very secure, but also makes it a little harder to put on and take off. Over all it does what it is supposed to do very well for the price.

                                  The hood fits snugly. It looks like it will do a nice job of mitigating flare.
