If you want the best lens flare protection for your 18-55mm you'll purchase this for your lens. It mounts/unmounts with ease, and with the new inner release Canon lens cap design, one can leave this hood in the ready-to-go position all of the time. Unless you're going for intentional lens flare, I would have this accessory mounted for every picture!

I love Canon lens hoods, and find them preferable to mounting a UV filter to every lens for protection. I've gotten accustomed to the lens hoods that come included with Canon L lenses and Tamron lenses, so I get annoyed when I need to buy them separately.

While this one isn't bad for Canon, you can still find cheaper alternatives easily, and the Canon ones seem remarkably expensive for what they are. Abnormally for Canon this hood is not felted on the inside to prevent glare off the hood, something that typically sets Canon apart from the cheaper options. In this case you likely won't loose anything going with a non-Canon option for half the price.

    Comments about Canon EW-54 Lens Hood for EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

    Canon's EW-84 lens hood completes the EF-M 18-55mm lens. I also added a 52mm haze filter. Both work perfectly together.

              This makes so much sense. Works very well to protect the lens, but does not extend the lens length too much.

                It does protect the lens from bumping into stuff, and provides shade in sunny areas.

                  This is an excellent lens shade for the EOS M camera. Fits it like a glove. Only problem Canon should make it a standard part of the camera and not an add on. My other Canon high end lenses (24-70 and 70-200) come with the lens hood.

                  If you want the best lens flare protection for your 18-55mm you'll purchase this for your lens. It mounts/unmounts with ease, and with the new inner release Canon lens cap design, one can leave this hood in the ready-to-go position all of the time. Unless you're going for intentional lens flare, I would have this accessory mounted for every picture!
