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.

      Perfect lense hood

      By Clint Jones

      Comments about Canon EW-73B Lens Hood:

      The build quality of this lense hood is great. Locks into position very well on the exterior side of the lense allowing you to use your lense cap.

        This lens hood fits perfectly on my Canon 18-135. When shopping online and for the added $$'s I don't have to bother with 3rd party cost/benefit ...just go with the Canon and be assured you are getting the best value and function for the money.

                    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.

                                Comments about Canon EW-73B Lens Hood:

                                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.
