This is the third lens hood I've purchased for my new Canon T5i 18-55mm kit lens with stepping motor. I tried two other hoods that did not fit and eventually realized that this seems to be the only hood that fits Canon's newest version of this lens. The hood fits perfectly snug and is of quality construction. Before purchasing this hood, I read the poor reviews that complained of a loose fit but I believe that those consumers bought this hood for the older version of Canon's 18-55mm kit lens. Although both lens hoods are 58mm, the newer version of this lens has a slightly larger diameter connection, thus making this hood fit loose on the older lens. Hope this helps...happy shooting!

I found the petal design of this lens hood to not provide the same benefits as a full rounded lens hood due to the size of the hood itself. The size lends itself to being extremely narrow where it drops in the U shape going from an inch to a half inch wide. I would not trust the narrow areas for giving much protection from glare or from physical protection. This narrowness also makes for more flex/bend when trying to get a grip on the hood for removing/attaching so I find I must be sure to only grasp the wide sections when turning it.

    Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

    I use a hood when I am outside photographing my kids. I didn't know if it was the right hood for my lens because of the way it fit, so I recommended calling and asking. Even though the description mentioned my camera and lens, it was off by a hair. I wound up returning it for a better fit and it's great!

      Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

      This is a genuine Canon product that is well made and sturdy. However, It does not fit the 18-55
      EF-S kit lens that comes with many Canon Cameras. It WILL fit the 18-55 IS STM lens.
      I did not realize this until I received it. Had to return it for credit.
      Despite my error in ordering, B&H made returning it as easy as can be. Thank you B&H for your always superior service.

          I purchased the hood to go with the rain cover I also bought and it works great to help keep the cover on and keeps the sun glare out of my photos.

              Typically, I attach this item to the outer end of the lens, thus blocking unwanted light from striking the surface of the glass.
              Attachment system is quick and easy.
              Should be packaged with the lens rather than being a separate purchase.

                    Fits well and is exactly as described. I bought a Promaster version from a local camera shop only find out it was a 2 piece design which was flawed in design and was a waste of time.

                    Also the turn around time from purchase to delivery is fast. Keep up the great work.

                          Getting back to photography after a long time away I needed to replenish my equipment. B and H online was a dream come true - all the stuff I wanted and I wanted this Lens Hood! Fits my lens great - easy to fit and easy to remove. Stores in my case just right. Not too much shading and not too little. Friends are already asking where I got it so I am sending them to B and H. Our area is a little shy of good camera shops. Thanks BandH!

                              Good build, although it's plastic, not metal. But not many lens hood are nowadays, even for OEMs.

                              Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

                              Does what it's supposed to do. Since it's from Canon, it fits perfectly. There are other cheaper alternatives, but I prefer this over Chinese knockoffs on @. Wish it was a bit less expensive. Plus, it looks great.
