Key Features
  • For Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

Vello EW-73D Overview

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution.

Has a subtle speckled appearance that has no affect on the matching appearance on it's intended lens. Easily fits in the shooting mode locking/unlocking in with the push button. Quality is good and price is surprising when compared to Canon product. Only negative is when mounting in reverse storage position it can be slightly difficult to remove.

Tight fit

This is my 2nd Vello brand lens hood, the other one was for the Canon 18-55mm STM lens. Both of these lens hoods are a bit too snug to easily reverse so I just leave them in the shooting position. Fortunately they're both fairly short and allow ease of handling. Perhaps with use the fit will loosen a bit and more easily allow removal and reversing.

fantastic

Canon is (in)famous for selling lenses minus a hood. The separately sold Canon hoods are very pricey. This Vello hood for my RF 24-105mm is well made, fits perfectly, and is very inexpensive. Thank you, Vello and B&H.

Does this lens hood work with the Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 STM lens? The Canon version hood is an EW-73D, but the description doesn't mention compatibility for the RF lens.
Asked by: Mitch
This lens hood would fit a few different lenses, such as the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 STM and the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM.

question

I tried to reverse the hood on a Canon EF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens and it will not lock in?
Asked by: Gerald v.
I'm sure you've probably got it by now but here goes... Place the inverted (reversed) EW73D hood over the lens with the VELLO name & # in the 12 o'clock position. Give it a little wiggle and you will feel it 'slot' in place. Then rotate the hood to the left (with the lens facing forward) 90 degrees. The red key icon & the lock tab should be on the top (12 o'clock) & it will lock, you will hear the click. I find the lock to be a good feature but it is a bit of a hassle if you forget it's not a Canon hood and try to quickly remove it.
