Vello ET-83II Dedicated Lens Hood

B&H # VELHCET83II Mfr # LHC-ET83II
You Pay: $15.95
Product Highlights
  • For Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L Lens

The dedicated Vello ET-83II Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 70-200mm f/2.8L Lens.

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 "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. 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.

            Fit was a little snug at first, was worried about torquing on the lens, but after a few uses, all good.

              I shoot a lot of sporting events and the light can come from strange directions, this hood keeps out unwanted light and also serves as great protection when maneuvering through large crowds. Great replacent for the original. A+

                    The hood works well and fits better than the worn Canon equivalent it replaces. Finish is not up to par with Canon; has rough unfinished edges, granted this does not affect function. Nice for about a third of the cost of the original.

                      I use this product as a replacement for the missing Canon 70-200 IS. Canon's hood is an expensive piece of plastic to block flare. This is a cheaper piece of plastic to block flare. It does a really good job at that. It doesn't fit on as easily, but once its on the lens it works great at being a piece of plastic that blocks flare.

                      I use this with my canon 70-200 f/2.8. I didn't want to spend the extra $$ on the canon version so I bought the Pearstone. It is identical to the Canon version except there's no fuzzy stuff on the inside. Even without the fuzzies it performs exactly like the Canon counterpart - a great purchase for the money saved. The only con is the fit is not quite as tight as the Canon
