Product Highlights
  • Fits Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens
  • Black Felt Interior Lining

The ES-71II Lens Hood from Canon is compatible with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens and features a black felt interior lining to absorb light and therefore reduce unwanted light reaching the lens. 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.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Great product, worth the price

The lens hood fits my 50mm 1.4 perfectly and for the price I'm glad. It never leaves my lens and has protected the front element and any filters more than once.

The lens hood fits my 50mm 1.4 perfectly and for the price I'm glad. It never leaves my lens and has protected the front element and any filters more than once.

Solid and light construction and felt lined. Reversible for storage but I find I like it in the normal position as it does a great job of protecting the focusing elements and any filters. I wish there was a flower options but the tube design works great. Significantly cut down any unwanted flare and doesn't get in the way of my flash. And there's just enough room to adjust a filter with the hood on. Plus it just make the 50mm 1.4 look that much cooler!

I buy and use lens hoods for every lens whenever possible, and I'm big believer in them. I purchased this for my Canon 50mm EF f/1.4. I'm not thrilled with the fit. It's fine when used as a shade, but you can also reverse it and use it as a protective cover for the lens barrel. In the reversed position, I find it very difficult to attach. I have not had a problem reverse-attaching other Canon hoods.

Also it's made of plastic and it's not quite as rigid as I would like. Considering the price, it seems like this hood could be better.

If I had to do it over, I'd consider a less-expensive non-Canon hood, just to see if the reverse fit were better.

                        It's the official Canon hood for the 50mm 1.4. You can probably get something cheaper without the felt lining but I like to stick with Canon.

                                    It is always a good idea to have hoods for all of your lenses. I believe if you pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a lens, why not spend another $[$] to protect it. My only wish is for Canon to include the hood with the purchase of all their lenses, as they do with the "L" series. The interior of the hood consists of a microfiber skin which helps grab dust before it reaches the glass. Overall, it is worth the money for what does.

                                      I use hoods for all of my lenses, and will overpay for them for this reason. If I am spending several hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a lens, why in the hell would I not pay another $ for something that will protect it. However, I do believe all of the lenses should come with a complimentary hood, not just the "L" series. Build is solid, and they attach and detach with ease.

                                        Being able to store the hood backwards on the lens makes it worth the few bucks more than less expensive alternatives.

                                            This is essential for the 1.4 to protect the vulnerable micro USM AF system. It's a little bit pricey but the built quality and protection is unmatched by other replicas.
