Vello EW-83J overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello EW-83J Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 17-55mm f/2.8 IS 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 "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.

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 EW-83J reviews

    EW-83J Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 90.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just Buy the Canon, Tight-wad ;o) It works, as far as blocking approximately the same amount of light and glare as the more expensive Canon hood. But you won't like it. The worst part is it's lack of a positive lock. There is no satisfying click as it slides into the correct position. Which, as it turns out, is more than just a sound. This hood will move on you, if bumped slightly. After shooting a few hundred shots with this hood attached, it has rotated on me twice. True enough, I noticed it in the viewfinder before each shot, but it still did it. You just spent almost a grand on a lens. Do yourself a favor and pony up the extra $25 and get the right hood for it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Grooves not aligned with lens The only way to attach the copy of the Vello hood I received resulted in a 90 degree variance. The two long petals were on the sides of the front of the lens, and the two short petals were at the top and bottom. The misaligned long petals were visible through the lens, which would seem to be the case even if they could be aligned properly top and bottom. I returned the Vello and ordered the Canon version for approximately twice the cost. B&H quickly processed the returned merchandise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick for ess purchased with my 17-55mm, and so far i'm pleased. no, it does not lock as securely as some of my brand name hoods, but i haven't had any issues with it rotating without me knowing it. Still enough room to rotate a polarizer and get the lencap on/off. Good value.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so good... I got this because the 18-55 IS f2.8 NEEDS a lens hood--there's a lot of expensive glass out there with that huge objective and heavy lens, not to mention ghost/flare risk. So the tough choice is...buy the crazy expensive Canon hood, or the the priced Pearstone. I went cheap, unfortunately. The good: it fits well and looks good. It was durable, taking some scrapes without a problem. The bad: it does not lock reliably. It often twists in use, causing unintended vignetting. Worse--it falls off with minor jostles. It was finally lost for good in a crowd when it was stripped away unnoticed. So, I am out this cost and the cost of the real hood from Canon, which we shouldn't have to buy!!! I'll post of the Canon hood is a bust, though other Canon hoods have withstood the rigors of hard use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well - good price Fits well either extended or pointing towards the camera to save room. Good price, too. Can still use lens cap, but it takes a little more effort to put the cap on and take off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hood even better price Very well made for the price. The fit is perfect and secure. If you are using the Canon 17-55mm 2.8 you need to use a lens hood to cut down lens flare this lens is notorious for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More protection for the lens This less costly hood fits my 77mm lens with a filter well and is easy to reverse for fitting back in my bag. I can still get my lens cap on while out and about.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vello Hood The hood works as it should as far as shading but I just don't like the way it locks in place because it doesn't actually lock in place like a Canon hood does. The Vello detent is not very positive or strong because the detent projection does not engauge the lens cut out to hold it in place. It's too easy to rotate the hood out of position if it gets bumped. I have two Vello hoods for two different size lens and they are both don't lock in place very good. At $ it's a bargin.
