Purchased this for my 18-200 EF-S IS lens because it didn't come with one. My previous lenses didn't come with one either and I never bought one for them, so this is my first lens hood. Didn't really know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Easy to attach, easy to store (backward). This will stay with my camera all the time.

I bought a Canon lens shade for my 28-135 lens ([$]) and it was fine. Then I bought a 18-200 Canon lens and I put the shade on it. Good shade and no vignetting unless you want to lock it on. The bayonet lock is offset 90 degrees so the long part of the shade is on the sides rather than on top. Vignetting.Bottom line if you want to use your old lens shade you'll have to tape it on or eat it for another[$] for the same shade with the proper alignment. Sleezy, very sleezy.

    Comments about Canon EW-78D Lens Hood:

    Had originally purchased a no name lens hood for my Canon EF-S 18-200MM because they were out of stock of the Canon hood and I needed the hood for a trip. The other hood always had a slight wiggle, and easily worked its way off. The Canon EW-78D is easily attached and fits snug.

        It does a great job taking out that extra haze you get from side light sources. Very convenient to put away right on the lens and put back on.

            Canon Original Equipement Manufacturer "OEM" parts just work together. I've never been disapointed with "OEM" parts. I would always recomend using canon lens hoods with canon lenses because then you won't have any part of your photo cut off. Spend the extra money and you should always be a happier camper.

                I bought this lens hood to give the front glass on my Canon 18-200mm lens a bit more protection. It does this job very well. It seems to be durable, and I plan to keep it on this lens as long as I own it.

                    - very solid construction
                    - fits perfectly and tightly even when in storage i.e. flipped around
                    - I had bought a 3rd party one and its 2 clips kept getting loose so I had to push them in each time. Eventually I lost one clip and decided to spend the money to buy thisCanon product
                    - the felt lining inside the hood helps cut down reflection too
                    - very happy with this product

                        I thought long and hard about settling for an after market hood but I thought, this hood will be with me for as long as I own this lens so I might as well spend a few more dollars and get something I won't regret, Canon Quality. I've neve been disappointed buying quality, but I can't say that when buying aftermarket.

                                I bought a Canon lens shade for my 28-135 lens ([$]) and it was fine. Then I bought a 18-200 Canon lens and I put the shade on it. Good shade and no vignetting unless you want to lock it on. The bayonet lock is offset 90 degrees so the long part of the shade is on the sides rather than on top. Vignetting.Bottom line if you want to use your old lens shade you'll have to tape it on or eat it for another[$] for the same shade with the proper alignment. Sleezy, very sleezy.

                                Comments about Canon EW-78D Lens Hood:

                                Works well with the Canon EF-S 18-200mm telephoto zoom lens. The bayonet lock on the hood makes it easy to put on or take off, and it is held securely in place while making shots looking up or down. Another nice feature is that the hood locks securely on the lens when it is stored.

                                      Hood fits nicely on my Canon EFS 18-200 Zoom lens and has a positive detent as it fully seats onto the lens bayonet mount. Looks good and the quality is great. I can still remove and replace the factory lens cap (side pinch) with the hood in place, however it would be very easy to do with one of the newer center pinch lens caps. I especially like the "felt" like lining on the inside of the hood that will further reduce light reflection. Granted, it is expensive compared to the after market hoods but as a friend once told me "Always buy the best, that way you only cry once!"

                                        This is a good sturdy Lens Hood. I'm using it with a 18-200mm zoom. It does a great job of cutting down on the flare when shooting clouds near the sun.
