          Comments about Vello ET-67B Dedicated Lens Hood:

          Making a lens hood is not rocket science. This Vello hood is as good as the Canon product, but about half the price. It is the same size and shape as the Canon, it is good material, good construction and it fits the lens.

                Comments about Vello ET-67B Dedicated Lens Hood:

                This lens hood is much cheaper than the Canon mount you can buy, fits perfectly whether mounted front or back over the lens body, and looks absolutely fine on the lens. Most macro lens hoods are not of the petal variety, so its round shape still looks appropriate. Too bad Canon does not just include lens hoods and tripod mounts with many of their lenses, but this is just the opening that a firm like Vello can exploit. Shame on Canon.

                    Comments about Vello ET-67B Dedicated Lens Hood:

                    I like to have lens hoods on all my lenses to prevent flare and damage to the front element of the lens. The Vello lens hood fits well on my 60mm macro lens and is much cheaper than the Canon version. There is no reason to spend more for the Canon one.

                      Okay, first it is a lens hood, so there is not much that can be said about it. But for the price it is a great piece of hardware and fits nicely on my EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens.

                                        This hood functions as described. While it lacks the fancy felt lining that Canon hoods come with, this doesn't seem to affect its ability to keep unwanted light out of my EF-S 60mm Macro.

                                                Bought this for my new 60mm macro lens and it works exactly as it should. Is well constructed, lightweight, and durable.

                                                  I thought the Canon lens hood was just too expensive for what it is, so I bought this Pearstone version and saved $$$$.
                                                  Perfect fit, in fact, it feels more solid and tighter fitting than some of the hoods I have for my L lenses.
                                                  The exterior finish is exactly the same as my 60D too, so it is a match made in heaven.
                                                  If you have the Canon 60mm macro lens, you MUST get one of these.
                                                  It stores well when you fit it on backwards too.

                                                        No complaints with this hood. It fits my Canon 60mm macro perfectly for shooting and storage. At nearly half the price of the Canon hood, you can't go wrong.
