I always keep a lens hood on lenses. They are less expensive than even the cheapest filter and they provide a few more inches of separation between the front element and disaster without effecting the image quality. The Canon lens hoods are high quality and the EW-78E is the traditional bayonet style so it's secure on the lens, doesn't impact any filters that you do use and they're reversable for transport. The EW-78E is also wide enough to get your fingers in to remove the lens cap. It's just a shame Canon doesn't include them with the higher priced EF-S lenses like they do with the L series.

I went all out an got a Canon EF-S 15-85 lens for my Canon XSi camera. I wish the lens hood was included with the lens, but it is not. I have found lens hoods to really help reduce stray light from hitting the lens, and protects the lens from damage. Given the cost of the Canon EF-S 15-85, I sprang for the Canon brand lens hood rather than try an off label brand which was only slightly less expensive. You really need a lens hood for a lens of this quality. If you go Canon or off label is up to you.

        Like others have said, it's very well made and fits perfectly. Probably the nicest hood I've ever owned. But it's too expensive, and should have come with such an expensive lense.

        A bit expencive for what it is

        By Antoine

        from Montreal

        Comments about Canon EW-78E Lens Hood:

        Nicely build and work as expected but it's too expensive for a piece of matte black plastic with some non reflective material inside. But at the same time because it's plastic it's lighter.

          More expensive than the non-canon brands but functionality more than makes up for this. Easy on and off, easy to reverse load for storage. Good price at B and H.

                I heard a few reviews of third party hoods not fitting well so just went for the Canon hood for my 15-85. I don't regret my decision. It's definitely more expensive but fits perfectly and is built nicely. Would recommend this.

                One thing to note is that the hood will create a shadow if you use the internal flash (sometimes). Remember to remove it when you use internal flash.

                        The lens hood blocks light, easily slips on and off, and is made sturdily. The inside is textured to reduce reflections. Worth the extra money.

                                      I can't understand why anyone would want to put anything but Canon parts on there lens... this fits perfect and is worth every penny.

                                        I use this on my 15-85mm Lens. This is a must have item. Reduces or eliminates lens flare, increases contrast and makes colors look better. Also potentially protects the front of the lens. Construction quality is very good. It has a crinkle paint finish on the outside, and black felt on the inside. Twists onto the lens very smoothly, and securely locks into place.

                                        The bad? Doesn't come with the lens. Shame on you, Canon.

                                          Comments about Canon EW-78E Lens Hood:

                                          There is not a whole lot to say about the lens hood, other than it does its job. I purchased it for my 15-85mm lens and it does what I expect it to. The hood is solid plastic and does not feel cheap. It has a felt interior and snaps into place securely, both forwards and backwards. I do notice less stray light, but if I use the built-in flash in my 7D, there is a shadow cast by the hood.

                                              A valuable addition to any camera bag to keep out stray light and to help protest the front of the lens. The hood is very well constructed and appears to be a quality product, typical of Canon.
                                              It locks firmly in place and stays put. The only downside is the shadow at the bottom of the image when flash is used at the widest focal length.
