Product Highlights
  • For Canon Macro MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Lens

The dedicated Vello MP-E Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's Macro MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x 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.

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.

          It is a lens hood, so not too much to say. Chose this cheaper alternative over Canon's version, and I see no real difference.

            Comments about Vello MP-E Dedicated Lens Hood:

            The Canon MP-E 65 1-5x macro is an excellent lens, however the working distance is very short. This will help you to avoid direct contact between the lens and subject, or worse yet, a hard object! If you like extreme macro photography, get this hood (and buy the lens to put it on!)

            Can't fit a hood on top the hood!

              Comments about Vello MP-E Dedicated Lens Hood:

              I use this to protect the glass on the MP-E 65. It fits exactly into the ring mount of the MT 24EX, so I have it permanently fitted onto it. I never use the MP-E 65 without the flash anyway.

              But I wish it was possible to fit å small hood onto the small hole of the dedicated lens hood. But it's curved so even if you get a small hood, it won't stick.

                Comments about Vello MP-E Dedicated Lens Hood:

                The problem I have with this lens hood is that you screw it in like a filter, it's not as easy as mounting a regular lens hood, but if you must screw it in why not make it possible to screw other things after it (like with filters)? I can't use it with my ring flash for that reason, and you might think that if you need one you don't need the other but sometimes you do and generally I prefer to keep the lens hood mounted all the time, can't do it here. I you do need it there's no reason to spend more money on the original canon lens hood, they're pretty much the same.
