Product Highlights
  • For Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

The dedicated Vello EW-83H Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.

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.

      A word on the importance of lens hoods: if you use your camera a lot, it *will* drop at some point. I have badly dropped my camera twice in 5 years. One time I had a lens hood on an L lens, and the hood took all of the damage, leaving the lens unaffected. The other time I had the hood off a Sigma lens, and the lens casing broke. Build quality was probably a factor but had I had the hood on the Sigma, I'd probably still have that lens.

      I bought this hood from B&H when I bought a used 24-105 L lens to replace the Sigma that I dropped (this is the one benefit of breaking a lens - it's a good excuse to upgrade). The used lens no longer had its hood and I was spending enough on the lens so I decided to save on the hood.

      Having used it for a few weeks, it seems fine. Maybe a little less elegant going on and coming off than the original Canon hood. Compared to the original Canon hood I have for my other L lens, this one does feel a little "cheaper" but functionally it gets the job done.

      Definitely a good purchase if you're looking to save a few bucks.

      It fits, but not as nice as original

      Bottom line: I wouldn't buy it again. It fits fine, but instead of the velvet that that Canon ones have, this is more of a matte textured plastic....Read complete review

        My canon lens hood was destroyed. This Vello hood is much cheaper than a canon and fits like a glove.

                My 24-105mm f4L lens fell from a short distance and the original lens hood broke into many tiny pieces. I'd buy another if this one broke because these are cheap enough to be replace multiple times if they break.

                    This hood definitely does the job for me. I was skeptical about this hood, but once I put it on my 24-105L, I felt 100% confident. The original is a bit more sexy, but it doesn't make your photos any better.. Save the money.

                                Great Product. Snapped right onto lens. Lost my original, was nervous about this one especially after some reviews. Its just the same as the original with a fraction of the cost. Save some green, buy this one, it works fine.

                                                Cost's half the price of the Canon brand. The only difference I could find between them is this lens hood actually fits on the lens better than the Canon brand.

                                                  Bottom line: I wouldn't buy it again. It fits fine, but instead of the velvet that that Canon ones have, this is more of a matte textured plastic. ...............

                                                    We use this with our 17-55mm Canon Lens. Fits and works flawlessly.

                                                        I'm a professional photographer who has a bad habit of losing my lens hoods.
                                                        I read some of the reviews that said the Vello is a bit hard to screw on. I've had no problems at all. It fits as well as my Canon did, at about a quarter the price. This is well worth saving the extra $$.

                                                                        Not as easy to attach as the Canon but for the savings, it's fine. I left my original Canon behind at a wedding and needed to replace it.
