Canon EW-73B Lens Hood

You Pay: $24.95

The Canon EW-73B Lens Hood is 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.

Lens Compatibility
EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

This lens hood works just like all the other similar hoods from Canon: Attach it to lens, turn 1/4 of a revolution and there it is.

It protects the lens front from stray sunrays, rain, snow, dust and some violence.

You can also store it backwards on the lens, in which case it doesn't add anything to the length of the lens, but still to the diameter, of course.
The drawback with this one is that it's rather small. Compared to the significantly larger EW-83J for the EF-S 17-55 mm f/2.8 IS USM, which has the same widest angle, it seems this could have been a bit longer, even if it has a smaller diameter.

No, it's not included with the lens, so you have to buy it separately.

            Comments about Canon EW-73B Lens Hood:

            I had bought the cheaper one to save money and the third time putting it on it cracked, so I called B&H and at total surprise to me the rep gave me an instant credit towards the Canon one, all I had to do was pay the difference.
            Now that's customer service, from now on I'm always buying name brand and always buying from B&H, if your not your waisting your time and money.

              I have never had a lense hood that did not do what its suppose to. contrary to some opinions the hood cannot put on reverse (for safekeeping and transport) one might try it again, it definitely works.

                    I found this lens hood by clicking on the possible accessories for the lens that I bought off here, and it works perfectly, of course. The way this website is set up makes it so easy for people to find the things that they might need, it's insane.

                        This is a nice lens hood. A little more expensive than the Vello brand version, but works just the same. I bought this for my 18-135mm STM Canon lens and works great. I love that it twists on and off and is reversible, as apposed to the clip on kind. My only issue is when my lens is is at the 18mm setting I can see the outer edges of this hood so I always have to be slightly zoomed in. I know this fits other lenses that may not have this problem, so overall a good lens hood. It does what it does.

                                Comments about Canon EW-73B Lens Hood:

                                Have this mounted on a 18-135mm STM. Fit is excellent and does not feel loose or sloppy at all. Have used it on a sunny day and did not get any lens flares.

                                  What can I say more than it's Canon and fits perfectly on the lens, on the contrary of other third party lens hoods that I bought in the past.
                                  I like also the black lined interior that should help even more to avoid glare on the lens.

                                  Great hood for protecting front element of lens and blocking lens flare. Product fits a little on the tight side, but I imagine it will loosen up as time goes on and it gets some use. Does not fit as good as some of the hoods on my L lenses, but much better than after market hoods I've used.
