Canon EW-83H Lens Hood for EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

You Pay: $42.95

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.

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.

    Good Product, But Over priced!

    The lens hood is the perfect design for the lens that it is designed for. For the price the hood should be metal as the plastic breaks easily.

    Both this and the identical RMA replacement fit loose and can be heard rattling in the wind when shooting video with my 24-105 Canon lens. neither Canon or B&H have ever heard of this problem and Canon simply suggested wrapping the lens edge with white plumbers tape to sure it up.. I don't think so!

      Comments about Canon EW-83H Lens Hood:

      I dropped my camera while on a visit to US and this Hood saved me from a big disaster. Hood broken but nothing happened to my Camera and Lens (5D and 24-105 USM). My advise: always use lens hood and save yourself.

        Comments about Canon EW-83H Lens Hood:

        With lens hood I feel mush secure about the lens, as (like almost everybody wrote already) it not only reduces unnecessary light, but protects the lens/filters. Was surprised by the high price of original Canon pieces, but when I touched the non-original ones (though 3-4 times cheaper) decided to go for original Canon hood. But worried if it will be secure on the lens - I dropped the original hood to the waterfall in Vancouver area last year - was not fastened too secure to the lens.

              The EW-83H Lens Hood is a must for shooting up angles with the 24-105mm lens. I use it for skydiving events and other action work.

                      This is an exact replacement for the lens hood I lost. Expensive but functional. Probably should have tried the Vello at 70% less.

                          I broke my first lens hood for my Canon EF 24-105 F/4.0 IS Lens broke.

                          It's nice to know when this happens, B&H Video has a readily available replacement that is just days away.

                          This lens hood comes with this lens and is perfectly designed for it.

                                    bought this for my 17-40 f/4L and it works perfectly. on a 1.6 crop camera anyway, like my 7d. it blocks a lot more of the stray light than the hood that normally comes with the 17-40. if you are using a full frame camera with the 17-40, then you probably want to stick with the stock hood.

                                    I have a lens hood for each of my lens at this time. They also help protect my lens glass.

                                        It's exactly what you think - a replacement hood for the 24-105 f4 lens. Simple and complete.

                                          This hood is specific for the Canon 70-300 f4-5.6 IS USM Lens. I tried aftermarket hoods, no good. Always buy Canon, always buy from B&H. [...]Good, sound product. Fits great!!

                                          The lens hood is the perfect design for the lens that it is designed for. For the price the hood should be metal as the plastic breaks easily.
