Vello ET-87 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello ET-87 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II 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 ET-87 reviews

    ET-87 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stand-in for the Canon hood First, the hood fits perfectly and locks in place with a snap as it should. Release button allows easy removal as well. Plastic is a bit thinner than the robust Canon version, but it is adequate. Overall quality is quite good in my opinion. I used this replacement hood over this past weekend while shooting some drag races where the hood occasionally brushed a cement guardwall where I was in a crouched shooting position. It took a few light scrapes on the front petal edges as I expected it would, saving the lens itself from that contact if the hood was not there. I left the pristeen Canon original in my camera closet at home- no need to beat it up when the Vello is on the job. I would certainly buy this hood again if it became lost or broken, and I'm recommending it to anyone looking for a replacement hood. Just make sure you are intending to use it on the correct lens- there are subtle differences in the hood mountings of Canon's various 70-200 lens models.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ET-87 Dedicated Lens Hood by Vello I managed to lose the hood for my Canon 70-200 telephoto lens. I was not able to replace it with the original Canon hood. So I jumped on the B and H site and just typed in the specifications of lens and need a replacement hood and the Vello ET-87 Dedicated Lens Hood came up and it was available unlike the Canon. In 3 days it was delivered and fit perfectly. I could not be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what it's intended for This lens hood does exactly what I bought it for with a significantly lower cost than the Canon equivalent.It doesn't have the felt that Canon has, but the Vello is sturdy and will protect the front lens element from rain, flare, and damage just fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Was not sure because of price but this is a perfect fit right down to the button to release. It does not have the felt liniing like the Canon version but does seem to have a dulled plastic finish inside for glare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly like the canon product Pretty much the same as the canon version with maybe not as nice material but does the same exact job and even has a lock.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 70 200 f2.8 hood Work as good as OEM, it even has the unlock button. I would purchase again.
