      At first, I did not see much , if any reason to purchase this shade. But, when I put it on the lens, it gave it a little more substance, and protection form hitting the front of the lens when your camera falls forward on the table. Yes, you could just put a filter in front, but I like the shade for a little more form and style.

      The ES-52 Hood is light weight but made by
      metal. So I feel this little hood has very good quality, Even better them L lens hood.

      I always use UV filter and lens hood to protect my lens. Using UV filter with this hood together on Canon 40mm f2.8 STM is good, Do not cost vignetting.

      But for a pancake lens, put hood and filter on it together looks like not "pancake" anymore. So If you want to buy this hood, better not buy UV filter for this lens.

      if you already bought a UV filter cover your Canon 40mm STM, do not buy this hood. Save your money to buy something else.

        Save your money and get a nice filter. It doesn't look like much because it doesn't do much and just adds bulk to the already compact and lovable canon 40mm pancake lens.

            Great for the rain when you want to carry your camera under your jacket. It keeps my filter from getting rubbed, smudged, etc. And, it allows you to fit the lens cap on the camera without removing the lens hood....... I am not convinced it reduces lens flare. But, I haven't had any flare with it on.........!!!!!!

                  I am enjoying the Canon 40mm pancake lens. Why the little piece of useless metal Canon calls a lens hood is 1) no included; 2) sold at all, since all you need for both protection and lens shade is a filter is a mystery to me. Canon's greed in pricing accessories is an astounding example of their chutzpah. Canon's cameras and lens are good, but overpriced junk they try to stick you with as accessories is shameful.

                                  This lens hood is good enough for protection, and marginal for stray light. I use it with a filter making it a little more useful for blocking light from angles near perpendicular to the lens.

                                  I bought it mostly for protection from bumps. I think it's useful in that way.

                                  Again, this design of lens hood is very shallow, unlike most Canon Hoods.

                                  Think this is a necessity for protection, my camera can swing pretty good when bending down. I really like the lens, so I'm protecting.

                                    At first, I did not see much , if any reason to purchase this shade. But, when I put it on the lens, it gave it a little more substance, and protection form hitting the front of the lens when your camera falls forward on the table. Yes, you could just put a filter in front, but I like the shade for a little more form and style.

                                    This is really nothing more than a 52mm metal filter ring without any glass. It screws into the 40mm lens' front filter threads. I recommend you save the money this empty filter ring costs and use your hand, a hat, or some other object to block point light sources and prevent flare.

                                      Comments about Canon ES-52 Lens Hood:

                                      It's very, very thin, so I wondered how much protection it was going to give to my pancake lens. I screwed the UV filter on the lens and then the lens hood on the filter. It creates some more distance for protection. It is a cheaper lens, so some may wonder why you would even use a hood on it. I do it to prevent oily finger smudges more than anything. Canon really needs to include hoods with their lenses. It's pretty ridiculous that Nikon and Fuji (and probably others) do, but Canon doesn't. Boo Canon.

                                          I found the design to be very interesting. It appears to be very different from most hoods in that it looks as though the actual lens shielding feature is not the portion thhat protrudes, but the portion that screws into the lens. close to the front element.
