The dedicated Vello EW-83J Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 17-55mm f/2.8 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.

    Very well made for the price. The fit is perfect and secure. If you are using the Canon 17-55mm 2.8 you need to use a lens hood to cut down lens flare this lens is notorious for.

    I got this because the 18-55 IS f2.8 NEEDS a lens hood--there's a lot of expensive glass out there with that huge objective and heavy lens, not to mention ghost/flare risk. So the tough choice is...buy the crazy expensive Canon hood, or the the ½ priced Pearstone. I went cheap, unfortunately.

    The good: it fits well and looks good. It was durable, taking some scrapes without a problem.

    The bad: it does not lock reliably. It often twists in use, causing unintended vignetting. Worse--it falls off with minor jostles. It was finally lost for good in a crowd when it was stripped away unnoticed. So, I am out this cost and the cost of the real hood from Canon, which we shouldn't have to buy!!! I'll post of the Canon hood is a bust, though other Canon hoods have withstood the rigors of hard use.

          This one is pretty simple it does what it is suppose to do. Stays in place very well better than some of the sigma lens hoods I have used which sometimes twist to the side and you don't notice until you get back to edit your photos and oh boy what a problem with the corners of your photos blacked out, but no need to worry with this one it stays in place nicely.

                  This is a good product, cutting flare and glare very well. It doesn't fit my Canon f/2.8 17-15mm lens as perfectly as the Canon lens hood for my f/4.0 24-104 L series as it requires a little more pressure to get it to lock and turn. But, for the price, it's a real value.

                                          There's not a lot to say about lens hoods, but this one from Vello looks great, fit perfectly, and does what it said. B&H shipped it quickly and so I highly recommend getting lens hoods from B&H.

                                              Price obviously good. Had one for a 70-200 that was tight at first, but this one fit perfect.
