      I bought this inexpensive lens hood for a Canon 35mm 2.0 that I took with me on vacation. The hood functioned well, was inobstusive, and also served to "grip" the camera to a surface when it was set on a table. That last is an added benefit. I had no issues with the rubberized hood becoming malformed or bend out of shape by setting it down in such a manner. I can't comment on its durability, but I have no reason to suspect that it won't last a long time. In either case, I like the compactness and inexpensiveness of this lens hood. A nice option.

      rubber wide angle lens hood

      It's round and made of rubber but otherwise not so great. Does not stay collapsed and the threads need improvement. Tough to screw onto various different filters. Poorly machined.

                    I have a number of these hoods, and really like them, thus the 5 stars, but unfortunately this hood causes vignetting when used with the M.Zuiko 9-18mm 1:4-5.6 lens below 11mm.

                        This is a great and easy product to help with lens flare. The flexibility of collapsing on the camera is great so you don't have to take time to unscrew it and take it off and then make sure you don't lose it. It can always stay on the camera and doesn't get in the way of the frame (so far just used it with my 35mm fixed)

                                Great hood, light, but annoying having to set camera on it's back when hood is on to prevent hood from being bent and twisting out of shape.
                                Consequently, from all the times I didn't bother to do that, it's glue started to separate from the metal ring, but it still works fine.
