Canon ET-65 III overview

  • 1Description

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Canon ET-65 III reviews

ET-65 III Lens Hood is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 158.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than the 3rd party knock-offs I'm not a huge fan of lens hoods in general, but I tend to use one on my 85mm prime. They are useful as a lens protector as well as for minimizing flare. I bought a super-cheap knock-off brand, but if you looked at it the wrong way it would fall off! Even though this Canon lens hood has sort of a spring-loaded collar like the 3rd party hood, it fits much tighter and secure. I'd give it 5 stars but for this bizarre collar design where you have to press these 2 opposing buttons to attach the hood. It wasn't horribly over-priced like some Canon accessories, so I'd say it is worth the extra $ in this case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick. Worth the price. Had a 3rd party hood for my 85mm f/1.8 for about a year. I hated the clip in style hood vs the twist lock type normally found on Canon lenses. It was difficult to put on and prone to coming undone. Decided to try the Canon version to see if it made a difference. I still like the bayonet mount more but the Canon ET-65III is a much better hood than the off brands in this case. It mounts securely and quickly, I don't worry that it will be knocked off anymore. The plastic is sturdier and of course the inside has the usual Canon flocking. All in all it is worth the small price difference. Recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, Not the Greatest Design Better than any other 3rd part brand, but is a tottally different design than any other original canon hood I own. It does not twist on, but you squeeze it, and 4 tiny, thin clasps go in & out to lock it on. It can spin when attached to the lens, but does not effect anything, just feels wierd, and I have a suspicion it won't last too long till one of those fragile clasps breaks. However like I said, no other options out there, as I tried and hated 3rd party hoods, but could be better designed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design - Not up to Canon Standards The mechanism on this hood is different than on my other Canon lenses. This hood does rotate to securely lock into place. It has two, difficult to press buttons that allow you to place the hood on the lens, either for use or reversed for storage. Even with the buttons depressed, it is difficult to get the hood to properly attach to the lens. It is equally awkward to remove. I was going to purchase a third-party hood to save some money, but when the design was described as above, I decided to pay extra for the Canon. I did not realize that the third-party hood was a copy of the (very poor) Canon design. This hood functions once in place, but is a needlessly poor design, that is a royal pain to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great accessory for the 85mm f/1.8 This hood is a bit unique because it is not a bayonet mount - uses a button on the side to mount (or remove) the hood using a groove in the lens barrel. It is a very different mounting mechanism than on my 50mm f/1.4 lens and my L lenses, but it fits the 85mm f/1.8 perfectly and is easy to mount and remove. Although it is a simple plastic hood, it does feel like a quality item and does include the standard black flocking on the inside and is actually only a little more than some of the generic ones. I am slightly worried about the longevity of the 'clips' that secure it to the lens, but otherwise I like the hood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gotta be an 80% profit margin for Canon on this I bought this with the 85 f1.8. It's a lens hood & does what it's supposed to, however having to pay Canon over $20 for a plastic clip-on necessity is really irritating. It should be included with the lens. THANKS Canon - I'm feelin' the love! As for the hood itself, it clips on and I don't care for the concept. It feels flimsy (because it IS). I much prefer a bayonet mount.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Absolutely Obnoxious I really prefer the twist-lock hoods. This newer design uses two push tabs and they are incredibly annoying to get lined up perfectly each time. It's not even like you can snap the hood on and then use the tabs to just remove the hood. You must use the tabs each time. The lock also seems very flimsy. I fear just carrying the camera on my shoulder and accidentally knocking into something would pop it off. The twist locks feel much more secure. I use hoods with all my lenses to protect against glare, debris, and fingers. This stupid locking design almost makes me want to throw it in the trash and risk the elements. Why Canon designed something that uses more parts (translation - costs more money to manufacture) versus the established twist lock that was very simple, elegant, and secure is beyond me. It works fine once it's on, but for some reason I have major issues getting it in place. As an event photographer, the last thing I want to do is be fiddling with lens hoods. If the old ones exist with a traditional twist lock, then I suggest buying a used one of those. I'm already looking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from its ok i expected a bayonet style attachment, since i'm used to that with my other canon lenses...this is sort of cheesy...i know it's gonna break sooner or later because of the's ok, nothing better to say...frankly, i expected more from canon...i mean, how much more would it cost to build a quality product like other lenses? i only recommend this lens because there is nothing else canon makes that is better constructed..
