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.

      Comments about Vello EW-78D Dedicated Lens Hood:

      I bought this for my wife's Canon's EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS.
      Works very well; not loose or flimsy. Excellent value. I've read reviews about flimsy, ill-fitting 3rd party hoods before, well not this one for this particular lens. Just as good as the Canon hoods on my 24-105mm, 50/1.4 and 85 f/1.8 (granted the hood on the 85 is a different type of attachment-type)

      B&H was awesome as usual with streamlined order and delivery.

          I have just received this lens hood. It fits the 18-200 mm lens very well, and can be put backwards on lens for easy storage in bag. I have not shot any photos yet, due to bad weather, but plan to do so soon, so can't comment on vignetting.

          Perfect for blocking light into the lens, plus it also provides a little extra protection for the front of the lens.

            Inexpensive equivalent to Canon's offering that fits perfectly and does what it's supposed to.
            Seems like it will last as well.

              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 is a very nice lens good that doesn't appear to be any different than the Canon manufactured hood but at a far more attractive price
