Works Just As Well as the Canon Model

I use this product with the Canon 55-250mm IS lens, and I have never had a problem with the hood. There is no reason to shell out more money for the same piece of plastic with the Canon name printed on it. If you're looking for a nice hood and don't care about advertising the Canon name on every single piece of your gear, save a few bucks and buy this model.

      Comments about Vello ET-60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

      Did not fit my Canon EF-S 55-250mm STM lens. The plastic tabs that hold the hood on the lens were too wide. I speculate that this was designed for the prior version of this lens. Luckily it fit my Canon 28-90mm lens perfectly.

      Cheap and Good

      Comments about Vello ET-60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

      This lens hood fits great and functions just as the canon one does but for a lot less. Unless your a name brand freak, this is the route to go. Great product all around including durability of material.

              I bought this lens hood to shield my 75-300 from the sun. it works very well and has protected my lens against a few bumps. overall it has a very good build quality and will protect your lens. Great buy!!!

                        Works great, easy to install and remove from lens and is a lot cheaper than the Canon brand hood. Only problem I have with it is if using a lens filter the hood doesn't fit on the lens, but is that a lens hood problem or the filter or lens it self.

                          Attaches securely, sturdy, perfect fit and doesn't vignette. If I was a brand-concious kind of guy, I'd cover "Vello" with a Canon logo. As with the Canon, the hood has to be removed to get to the lens cap, but a pinch-cap will solve that.

                                  This is a good lens hood for a 55-250. It is to replace an old one, but it works great. Storage is easy as well.

                                  Inexpensive enough, and easy to replace.

                                    I use this on my Canon 75-300mm lens. Lens hoods are a MUST for any lens. The Vello lens hood gets the job done at a fraction of the cost for a Canon branded lens hood. One of the resons I bought this hood was because it fastens exactly the same way as the Canon lens hood, and when storing the camera in your bag this lens hood will flip around and go on backwards so you can leave your long lens on the camera and store it. If you want a great lens hood at a great price, look no further.
