I purchased this as a recomended accessory to my Canon 60D/18-200mm kit. It's cheaper than the Canon brand but, it only goes on one way, cannot be turned around and it makes adjusting circular polarizer and lens cap replacement difficult. I just keep in my bag until needed. You get what you pay for.

    This hood does what it's supposed to at a very good price. I've owned this brand of hood before, and they take a pretty fair amount of abuse.

        Comments about Vello EW-78D Dedicated Lens Hood:

        I never thought a hood was that important until I started using it. Since I use it I don't know how I lived with out it for so long. It keeps the glare off my lens when I take the picture, so the pictures come out better.

                The flower peddle design allows for easy access to the lens cap. It also allows for rotation to line up on the parts of the shot that you want to have shaded.

                            This lens hood fits snugly on my Canon 18 - 200 lens. Can be reversed on the lens for when I put the camera in my camera bag. Materials are fine and no noticeable gaps when on the lens.

                                      This product is very reasonable for the price, can't believe some people is still paying more just for the brand, this product does everything the top brands do, so why pay extra? all in all, this product is worth loving for!
