Vello ET-65B Dedicated Lens Hood $14.95
You Pay: $38.00

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.

It fits the 70-300 tele with a UV haze filter just fine. Wish it was a little sturdier, but then it would be heavier too.
A nice feature is it can be inverted and put back on over the lens. This allows the whole assembly to store in a smaller space and provides some extra protection in a camera bag.

I didn't realize this would be so big just by looking at the pics. Besides that, well... it's just a hood, it's meant for my lens and it does what it's supposed to do.

One thing to note though, if you have a case/bag specifically for this lens (70-300 IS) like I did, you'll probably not be able to fit it in with the hood on since it significantly increases the diameter on the lens.

Oh, and the whole thing rotates as the lens is focusing which feels kinda weird.

        Comments about Canon ET-65B Lens Hood:

        This was a replacement lens. The original saved the life of my 70-300 tele lens and probably my camera too. The monopod slipped out of my hand so it was about a 5' drop. Landed on the hood on concrete. The hood jammed up on the lens so that the ring where it attaches cracked, but the hood was soft enough to soften the impact while at the same time hard enough to prevent the lens from getting broken or damaging where the lens joins the body of the camera. I was tempted to buy a cheaper replacement. There are plenty out there and I am a very frugal person - i.e.. cheap. But in this case you get what you pay for and this lens way more than paid for itself in protecting my really expensive equipment.

          Although the lens hood is very expensive for a plastic product, the Canon quality is top notch. It fits my Canon 70-300 IS USM lens perfectly and is lined with velvet like their other lens hoods. It is a very large hood but works great with the focal lengh of my lens. I just wish it was sold at half the price, but I'm glad I purchased this genuine Canon hood.

            Comments about Canon ET-65B Lens Hood:

            I purchased this to use while shooting outdoor swim meets...it has literally changed my photos. Before the hood, the pictures seemed washed out, "fuzzy," and too bright. Now, they are much clearer, and the colors don't need as much adjusting in post process. I especially love that on the inside of the hood there is a coating that feels soft, almost like fabric- it sucks up any errant light! It's amazing! I cannot find anything negative to say! Best $$ I've spent!!!

                I bought this hood for my EF 70-300mm IS USM. I am glad I stuck with Canon and didn't go with a cheaper off brand because you just can't beat the quality. I especially like the inner lining(felt-like) it has. This will prevent light from bouncing into the hood. It has 2 tabs, one on each side, that you press in as you put it on to lock it in place instead of screwing it on. Doesn't make a difference in performance either way but worth noting. Definitely large enough for the lens!

                      I have a lens hood by another company, and while the price is very nice, it just doesn't compare with the ones from Canon. Canon flocks the inside surface (important) but what's even more important for me is how well it fits. It attachs and detaches smoothly and with ease, with normal and reverse attachment - all features are much better than the clones. You get what you pay for.

                      This is a great lens hood but it should be included with the lens when bought. It fits on the lens for use then turn it around when not needed or storage of the camera/lens. Easy to use and install. Works great. Not much to say about a lens hood but it has to be better than anything aftermarket.
