After 5 years my lens hood popped off my 24-70 f/2.8L Canon lens while leaning over the stone wall of a reservoir when the hood hit the stone and popped off - this was while I was trying to get an unusual shot of beautiful hand-hewn stone on the spill-way. Watched with sadness as it dropped hundreds of feet onto the roof of a maintenance shed that was unreachable by any means. I thought I would end up with a knock-off but when I received my new lens hood ([...]) I was happy to see it was identical to the lens hood I lost including the felt on the inside. Very happy and relieved as this is my favorite lens and the lens hood has saved the lens from many knocks and bangs.

I wish I had a different lens hood for this lens that was smaller, less bulky and didn't constantly get knocked off when stored in the bag. I seem to remember having a smaller length one that had equal coverage some time back. I still recommend it though, because for me a lens hood is mandatory.

    Comments about Canon EW-83F Lens Hood for 24-70mm f/2.8L Lens:

    You need a good hood for your lens. While moving I unfortunately lost mine so I had to purchase another. It's sturdy, and I'm confident my lens will be safe if I somehow drop my camera. The only thing bad I can think about is how easily it scratches, but it does it's job.

    Comments about Canon EW-83F Lens Hood for 24-70mm f/2.8L Lens:

    I know it comes with the lens, but if by any chance you misplace it, is something you just can't have to protect & prevent flairing, it's an important part of this awesome lens.

        Please be careful. If you own a Canon 24-70 f/2.8 II lens this will not fit. I ordered it to replace the EW-88C that came with my lens. The II generation of the 24-70 must be 5mm different in OD then the generation I.

          I lost my last lens hood in a graduation crowd and finally got a replacement. I decided to go with Canon instead of a knock off because I didn't want any problems with fit. I also decided that it was worth the expense to save my very expensive lens as I use this for protection for my lens even if there will be no issue with glare. It fits perfectly, is easy to put on and I'm much less worried about my lens now.

            Does it's job. Good as if I got it new. Old one fell off into the ocean. This new one is clings onto the lens... the old one was a little loose after heavy use of putting it on and taking it off. It is a little bulky for what it is, but then again pretty much all lens hoods are bulky. As always, lens hoods are pricey for what it's worth... it is after all, a piece of plastic.

            Nothing like an OEM part

                  When I was on vacation, I cracked my lens hood somehow. I attempted to replace it with an after market part to 'save money', I should have known better.
                  Part got to me but the plastic was softer than the Canon part and there was no black felt on the inside of the lens hood to stop light sheen from the plastic.
                  So, off I went to the fabric store to purchase some black felt and some glue.
                  Glue the felt inside the lens hood... let dry... cut the felt to fit. Looks ok but the plastic is still soft and hood keeps popping off my lens.

                  No time or money saved on this issue.

                  Sooooo... I ordered the Canon lens hood from B&H. Of course, I ordered the incorrect one. It got here in record time but it was incorrect for the lens I had.
                  I called B&H.. Told them what I did. The sales person was great... gave me a return number, helped me select the correct part and kept all comments to himself about my mistake.
                  I sent my incorrect part back as requested. My correct part got here in record time and I even got some money back as the correct part was less expensive.

                  Moral of the story.... Do business with a quality Company and stick with OEM parts.

                  B&H has always treated me great.

                    I bought this lens shade to replace the old one that cracked. I use the 24-70 lens the most and have had it since 2006. I could have bought a cheap knock off but I once purchased a "made in China" release cord for my camera and had nothing but problems. I do this full time for a living and I would rather pay a little more for the original than have to deal with the drama.

                      I had a canon 24-105 before with many lenses. But After I switched to canon 24-70 2.8 L lens I realized the quality and the depth of field of this lens. When I am shooting with a heavy son light or with lots of lighting devises EW-83F lens hood worked me so perfectly. It seriously cutdown all the light flares. also good protection for the lens too. I always recommend this to all the photographic friends who lives all around the world!

                      Great lens hood, the only complaint I have is I lose them when shooting concerts, in thick crowds I use two slrs and they get jostled around quite a bit. The twist snap on is ok but it's not built to be jostled around.

                        This is my third hood. Works great when on the camera, but you can't leave it on the camera because it falls off too easily. Have had two fall off when shooting in areas where they aren't retrievable!

                          Comments about Canon EW-83F Lens Hood for 24-70mm f/2.8L Lens:

                          I lost my original somehow and this was a perfect replacement. Not exactly like the one that comes with the lens but perfect canon none the less.

                          Useful in all situations where there is a possibility of stray light. My old one was stolen and needed a replacement... had to have it!
