Product Highlights
  • For Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

The dedicated Vello EW-78BII Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM 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.

    I bought this for my Canon 28-135 and haven't taken it off since. It does a fantastic job of cutting down on lens flair and, most importantly, has protected my lens from what would have been some very serious damage, scratching, or smudging. The most important thing you have to remember is that it does add and additional 2 or 3 inches to your lens and makes it considerably wider at one end, which must be considered when purchasing a camera bag or lens case unless you want to take the hood off every time you pack your camera. The additional weight of the hood also promotes lens creep which, although I could care less, some might think of as a flaw.

    It looks just like the canon version, which is why I purchased it. However, it is really hard to attach and remove. It is tight to the point that you really need to hold the end of the lens to prevent adding too much torque to the fragile inner workings of the lens. I will probably go with the Canon version from now on. Lesson learned.

        This hood works wonders with the 28-135mm IS USM. At first i thought the size my be a bit much, but it's perfect. I highly recommend it with this lens!

          Comments about Vello EW-78BII Dedicated Lens Hood:

          any photographer knows the inportance to a lens hood. Any lens you use needs to have this hood on it to keep out the side lighting it prevents side lighting from entering the scene and giving any false readings to the sensors. I do not shoot with out one.

              Purchased to use on my Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and it works perfectly. Prevents glare and lens flare and I like the screw on lens hoods better than the slightly less expensive pop on lens hoods.

                A little cheaper than the Canon hood. Works as it's supposed to. It's not "flimsy" as others have said, no, it's not Titanium, but it's stiff and feels of good quality. It doesn't say Canon on it, but it works. Clicks into place easily and also sits backward on the lens with no problems.

                (All lens should COME with a hood!)

                          The Canon EF 28-135mm kit lens should come standard with this hood! The hood is sturdy, easy to attach, fits nicely, and provides nice protection from stray lighting effects. It also helps protect the lens itself from damage whether it is attached to the lens for use, or fitted over the lens in its storage position. This is a must have!

                                    This lens hood, by Vello, is affordable and durable. It fits the lens nicely, and even allows for some control while inverted.

                                      It's a lens hood. What can I say about it? It does it's job.

                                          I haven't played with this very much yet, but it fits well on my lens. Just make sure you can't see the hood when you shoot photos!

                                                I bought this hood for my 28-135mm Canon lens. It works great. It fits fine and does what it should.
