Vello EW-88 Dedicated Lens Hood $9.95
You Pay: $59.95

The dedicated Canon EW-88 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with the 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens.

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.

        Use a lens hood to prevent stray light from hitting my lens. It's compact, lightweight addition for my photography gear. Wouldn't travel without one.

            Great lens hood. More expensive over the 3rd party brands but the quality is so much better.

                Product is made for the 16-35 2.8 L lens and works well. I have had no issue with the product working in conjunction with the lens threads that accommodate it. I wish the plastic were more resilient to scratches, but what do expect from a plastic lens hood? It certainly helps with any sort of lens flare on the wide end of the lens. Overall another great product by Canon.

                      Comments about Canon EW-88 Lens Hood for 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM:

                      I was told that digital shooting was different in that you could shoot without lens shades and polarizer filters.
                      Not so from looking at the difference. Using a lens shade allows the detail in the light to saturate much better, yielding delicious colors and detail. I recommend shading every lens - always. But, Especially outdoors.
