Product Highlights
  • For Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM & EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lenses

The dedicated Vello EW-73B Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM & EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 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 "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.

    Most people have figured out that Canon doesn't include lens hoods with their EF-S line of lenses. Shame on them! This product offers the perfect reason to just say no to Canon's inflated price for lense hoods. The Pearstone version is made well, fits well with just the right amount of tension to not rattle or move when mounted, but easily removed and replaced as needed for space in the bag. Save your money to spend on better filters! or lighting, or whatever. This lense hood works great for me and saved me a little chunk of cash. SWEET!

    Do the job, but it is pretty cheap (seems easy to break).
    If you can, take a look at the original Canon part. Maybe you will choose to pay more for this one.
    Of course, if your budget is limited, this is not a bad choice.

              I needed a Lens Hood and didn't need to buy a $ Canon factory Lens Hood that would do the same job, and so, Vello was the key and under $. I get the same results that I needed with this Lens Hood. Though many things may need to be purchased from the factory, Vello is stepping it up to ensure that 3rd parties are just as well. I trust Vello and others should as well, especially if you are a pro on a tight budget.

                          Works well with my canon lens. The only reason I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5 is that it is a little hard to put on the lens cap while the dedicated hood is attached to the lens in the stored position. Other than that this is a great hood and has definitely improved the quality of my images.

                                    I'm not sure that the hood will provide the necessary shading from extra light. I am relying on the expertise of the manufacturer.

                                        Product is exactly as expected and does not differ from the Canon version. Great construction and feel, tight fit, but easy to take on and off.

                                          Saved a couple of dollars over the OEM EW-73B hood. Fits on the end of the EFS 18-135/17-85 lens (67mm) and secures with a twist. This ensures that the hood is properly aligned. When not in use, the lens hood fits on backward.

                                            I purchased this to go with a Canon 18-135mm walk-around lens. It fits snuggly and not only adds glare protection but also adds lens glass protection.
