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.

    Great Product

    Comments about Canon EW-78B II Lens Hood:

    I ordered this OEM lens hood after owning an aftermarket hood for years. Take it from me, spend the extra few dollars and buy this one. The picture quality is better; especially when shooting into the direction of bright sunlight. This is due to the coating on the inside of the hood. Of course B&H delivered before the promised delivery date!

              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 use this Lens Hood when shooting outside during the day. It is very easy to put on and take off. I would certainly buy this product again, just what I needed for the right light!

                                      Bought the Canon brand so I was sure it would fit my Canon lens snugly. Quality product, spend a few extra buck...you get what you pay for!
