What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

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.

      I bought this lens hood to protect my canon lens against accidental hits and also reduce glare from light.
      It does its job and also looks good on the lens.

                                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.
