Is the hood really needed for this lens ? Someone tested ?
Asked by: Svitlana
The Canon EW-55 Lens Hood (B&H # CAEW55) for the Canon RF 28mm f/2.8 STM lens helps to minimize flare by deflecting stray light from entering the lens. The hood also provides additional protection to the lens from accidental impacts, bumps, or scratching. The lens can be used with or without the lens hood depending on what is required while in use.
