What item is right for you?

The dedicated Vello EW-78D Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 USM & EF-S 18-200mm 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.

    I purchased this as a recomended accessory to my Canon 60D/18-200mm kit. It's cheaper than the Canon brand but, it only goes on one way, cannot be turned around and it makes adjusting circular polarizer and lens cap replacement difficult. I just keep in my bag until needed. You get what you pay for.

            Comments about Vello EW-78D Dedicated Lens Hood:

            I bought this for my wife's Canon's EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS.
            Works very well; not loose or flimsy. Excellent value. I've read reviews about flimsy, ill-fitting 3rd party hoods before, well not this one for this particular lens. Just as good as the Canon hoods on my 24-105mm, 50/1.4 and 85 f/1.8 (granted the hood on the 85 is a different type of attachment-type)

            B&H was awesome as usual with streamlined order and delivery.

                I have just received this lens hood. It fits the 18-200 mm lens very well, and can be put backwards on lens for easy storage in bag. I have not shot any photos yet, due to bad weather, but plan to do so soon, so can't comment on vignetting.

                    This hood does what it's supposed to at a very good price. I've owned this brand of hood before, and they take a pretty fair amount of abuse.

                        I never thought a hood was that important until I started using it. Since I use it I don't know how I lived with out it for so long. It keeps the glare off my lens when I take the picture, so the pictures come out better.

                                The flower peddle design allows for easy access to the lens cap. It also allows for rotation to line up on the parts of the shot that you want to have shaded.

                                            This lens hood fits snugly on my Canon 18 - 200 lens. Can be reversed on the lens for when I put the camera in my camera bag. Materials are fine and no noticeable gaps when on the lens.
