Vello EW-83J Dedicated Lens Hood $19.95
You Pay: $49.00

The Canon EW-83J Lens Hood, like all other Lens hoods, is 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 The EW-83J 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.

Essential but not included with the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens. As expected, it is well matched with the lens and does an effective jog of controlling light entering the lens without intruding on the image at any zoom setting. It is even possible to (carefully) adjust a circular polarizer with the hood in place.

I definitely would not purchase a knock-off brand lens hood, but for the cost of my 17-55 2.8 IS lens, this should have been included. There aren't any moving parts, so no complaints as of yet. Great product, bu I don't think Canon is being hurt this bad by the economy that I should have to pay for it.

            I have the Vello hood that came with the lens when I bought it. The Vello was prone to lens flare. The felt lining of the Canon seems to have done away with it. The only reason for the 4 rating is that the material is not as heavy as some of my other Canon lens hoods for the price.

              had to stay with the original Canon Hood as I've done in the past.. why go 'on the cheap' even though the Canon-price is too high( so -1 star out of the 5).. works well for controlling flare

                I bought a cheap-o lens hood for $4 from [*] that was supposed to work for this lens; but it definitely did NOT. You could see the hood through the lens!So I sucked it up and bought this. I immediately noticed the quality of construction, and snug fit to the lens. Plus the inside of the hood is covered by some form of fabric to prevent shine. Great product. Would've given 5stars if it wasn't so dang expensive. How much can it really cost Canon to make a piece of plastic?!

                            Although I was on the cuff about purchasing Canon's lens hood versus a third party hood, in the end I am happy that I did. No worrying about whether the hood would fit correctly or whether a lack of felt interior would generate flare (a potential problem on third party hoods). This item works as it should!

                              Fits well and does what its supposed to do. The only problem I have with it is that the lens now takes up extra room in my camera bag even when reverse fitted. Which means I have to leave something else at home now or get a bigger bag.

                                I bought this for a EF17-40 lens used on a crop body and it works great. Also have a ET-83II that came with my EF70-200 F2.8 and it still fits like new, so I wouldn't think of buying a non-Canon hood. A little pricey for what it is, but no regrets.

                                                Comments about Canon EW-83J Lens Hood:

                                                This lens hood does its job. The only downside or upside to it, as with any lens hood, is that it'll make you significantly more "high-profile." It's great for blocking bumps and frocking dust away (there's some velvet-y lining on the inside of the hard plastic hood), but the diameter is significantly (a subjective word used here) larger than that of diameter of the lens it's used on. Because of that, it's something to put away if you're shooting casually say for street or friend purposes when you're not on assignment. The lens hood also makes the lens feel unbalanced on a rebel body, but that's more of an issue with the rebel series bodies than anything else. The lens hood does scratch a little easily, but that seems to be a common plight with a lot of lens hoods with the same semi-matte finish.
