Canon ET-83 II Lens Hood for EF 70-200mm f/2.8L Lens

You Pay: $42.95

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.

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

      Comments about Canon ET-83 II Lens Hood:

      I tried to save a couple dollars and replace my damaged hood with a used one. Not worth it! This hood fits my 70-200 perfectly - no wiggle, no worries. Really helps reduce flare.

      Shields the undesierable indirect light and fits smoothly over the lens' mount system. Light and effective.

        Comments about Canon ET-83 II Lens Hood:

        You get what you pay for, and in this case per example, nothing works better than the original manufacturar equipment, so no unforeseen issues occur. And the fact that B&H has the original equipment on hand, is one further reason to return here to purchase photographic equipment, and and great service.

            You pay 5x more for the canon brand, but it really pays off when you slip the hood onto the lens.

            Comments about Canon ET-83 II Lens Hood:

            When I bought my canon lens used, it didn't have the lens hood. I purchased a generic lens hood and have always had trouble getting it to stay on the lens. This one works perfectly! I highly recommend the extra pennies be put into buying a lens hood that is the same brand as the lens, what a difference! Just be careful not to loose it :)

            DON'T GET SOAKED, USE A CANON LENS HOOD

            • Time-lapse photography

            Comments about Canon ET-83 II Lens Hood:

            Up above the 48º latitude, misty, drizzly or sleet often can ruin a photo shooting.

            You need to have your camera ready, and can't always clean your lens
            when a wildlife or maritime scene won't wait.

            Even for time-lapse photography, a Canon Lens Hood is a necessity.
            Moonrises would be lost without an effective hood on my Canon 70/200
            telephoto lens on my 7D camera.
