Vello ES-71II overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello ES-71II Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

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.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements

    Vello ES-71II reviews

    ES-71II Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 191.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as Canon and half the price The Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Autofocus Lens doesn't come with a Lens Hood so I bought this one believing that a ring of plastic is a ring of plastic and the word Canon on the side wasn't going to make a difference. It didn't. This Vello hood fits perfectly, can be reversed for storage and does the job exactly as the Canon product but at half the price. One thing I like better about it is the interior is finished with flat black as opposed to Canon's black flock. The flock probably absorbs more light, if slightly, but it also collects dust which is hard to remove. The Vello finis does the job just fine but is much easier to keep clean.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! Fits perfectly the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4. It attaches to the lens the same way as the Canon lens hood (it does not screw in the front focusing element). This is important to protect the fragile front focusing element of the Canon lens. It is made from plastic and it is a copy of the Canon brand hood. Build quality is on par with the Canon hood (after all, it is only a simple piece of plastic). Great price for the peace of mind of protecting the front element of the lens. I bought this over the Canon one because the Canon hood was not available and I am completely satisfied of my purchase. Also since it is cheaper I would recommend it instead of the Canon brand hood.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Does not fit properly like all the other hoods from this brand. Some are better than others, but I am returning them all. Here I was just trying to get back-ups in case I lose another one and can't get a replacement before the next job...big mistake going generic.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really not that great This feels like it's made of a cheap plastic. The fit on the lens leaves a lot to be desired as well. I've never owned the Canon version of this lens hood, so I can't do a direct comparison, but I CAN say that the lens hood that came with my Nikon 50mm f1.4 was SIGNIFICANTLY better! It has a very positive fit. With THIS lens hood, I find myself rotating it left and right, until I find where the hood engages the lens. With use and practice, I'm getting better at attaching the lens hood. On the other hand, there is NO learning curve with the Nikon. I seem to engage the Nikon properly, the first time, EVERY time. In the end, I can say with most certainty I would never buy this product again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job The ONLY benefit of this hood over the Canon hood for the 50mm is price. It feels rough when it goes on and remains so. Perhaps it is the finish on the lens itself or a combination of the two. It has no ribbing or felt on the inside of the hood to minimize any stray light on the surface. It does fit very well on reverse, for stowing, but turning onto position always feels rough.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it Tried to save a few bucks. Hood appears identical to original but does not fit properly and yes, I know how to install a lens hood.
    Date published: 2009-03-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hood for the money I use this hood with my 50mm f1.4 lens; nice attachment for the money. The hood is a little rough screwing on at first, but after the first 10 uses I found the hood loosened up just enough to make it fit perfectly. My hood has a little gap on the left and right side near the screw-on point. It doesn't effect any of the results, but I could see light leaking through the backside of the hood in specific conditions. The plastic quality of the hood is pretty good - strong enough to protect the lens when put on reversed in my bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it's Job Meant to protect my USM lens from experiencing a painful demise in a chance meeting with a wall in the future. So far, it has done exceptionally well at keeping overhead sunlight out of the frame as well as protecting the lens from bumps and scrapes. One useful purpose I discovered the other day is that if you take a photo looking through glass when the hood is against the glass it gets rid of any reflection, making photos from inside looking outside look simply as though they were taken inside most of the time
