Product Highlights
  • For Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L and 70-200mm f/4L IS Lenses

The dedicated Vello ET-74 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 70-200mm f/4L and 70-200mm f/4L IS Lenses.

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. A dedicated lens hood is designed to perfectly match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for. Moreover, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. And since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens.
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light.
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements.

        Had to replace the Canon lens hood. I found it goes on easier and it's a lot less expensive. Much happier with this product.

        Comments about Vello ET-74 Dedicated Lens Hood:

        Serves the same purpose as the original. It fits very tight, I can only mount it about a quarter turn. Although it will not fall off easy, it will take some time of continuous use to get it to lock all the way. I modified my hood, cut it about an inch shorter. White lens plus a very long hood is just like a magnet to peoples eyes. Lens with hood attached fits my bag and easier to carry. So far my photographs are okay, no glare problems. I usually use this telephoto lens hood outdoor when the sun is high above. Sun close to the horizon could be a problem.

              I lost the original lens hood for my Canon 70-200 lens. This replacement is easier to attach and detach than the original

                  Comments about Vello ET-74 Dedicated Lens Hood:

                  There are three choices for getting a hood for your 70-200 f/4L lens. You can pay about 40 bucks for a plastic hood from Canon. You can buy four hoods from Vello for about the same cost. Or, you can buy one hood from Vello and have $30 to put toward other gear. The hood is really durable and handles scratches better than the Canon hood. It does fit tight, but that's a good thing. It does break in and get easier with some time on the lens. Id rather have a snug piece than something that's loose and rattles off.

                  The only thing the Canon hood has that the Vello doesn't, is the felt type material on the inside. But that doesn't make a bit of difference. I'm not one to throw money away, so I'll be buying Vello hoods from now on.

                  It's a lens hood.

                  Not much to say, really, because it's rather straight forward. Should you need to replace the factory lens hood, this is a good alternative for a fraction of the cost of the Canon brand hood.

                      Cheaper than the original Canon product and just as good. What's there to complain about? Of course, you won't need it unless you lose or break the one that comes with the lens.

                        Comments about Vello ET-74 Dedicated Lens Hood:

                        About the only difference I see between this and the Canon hood is the printing on the top and the Canon has the black fuzz instead of nonreflective plastic on the inside.

                        I bought it because my OEM hood had become very loose fitting and would fall off. Comparing the two side by side I see no reason to pay 3x the money so the hood has "Canon" written on it.
