Canon ET-86 Lens Hood for the 70-200mm f/2.8L "IS" EF 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.

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.

      Comments about Canon ET-86 Lens Hood:

      I had acquired the lens with a knock-off hood. It was flimsy and I didn't like the way it fit. The original euipment hood fits like it should and goes on and off easily. It completes the feel of a quality lens system. Sure, it's more money, but there's more quality as well.

        Comments about Canon ET-86 Lens Hood:

        You can buy other brand hoods, or even online knockoffs, but if you buy Canon you will only buy once. OK, it might not outlast the lens, but you can be sure that it won't let you down. Worth every penny.

              I use a lens shade all the time and had misplaced mine.
              Nice to know that I can just call up and find that you have it
              in stock ready to ship.

                Comments about Canon ET-86 Lens Hood:

                Bloody expensive for what it is, but it does say Canon on it. Never tried a 3rd-party hood, such is the appeal of the OEM gear. Image really is everything.

                strong, great fit and gives my photos a cleaner look with more contrast due to keeping the light from flaring the lens.

                I don't think I would try to shoot outdoors without this hood.

                        Works well when putting lens against glass for pictures of animals at a zoological facility. Also helps with lens flare. Can be difficult to attach to the lens as it is a tight fit.
