Vello EW-65B Overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello EW-65B Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM & EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM lenses. 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 EW-65B Reviews

    EW-65B Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Choice I needed a lens hood; accomplished. I use hoods as much for protecting my lens as I do for stray light. This one is all plastic, no flocking, and turn-clips into the lens with a spring loaded clip. None of that is my favorite, but for something I will most likely crack/break at some point, it's NBD. And low cost! I would (will) definitely buy again. Only thing to note is the petal shape gets pretty shallow on the sides, which is obviously unavoidable, but does leaves the lens more vulnerable. If you use it cropped perhaps it's possible to get a hood for the similar 35 IS...? dunno

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well - much cheaper than Canon I use this hood on the Canon 24 mm f/2.8 IS, and I couldn't be happier with it. I am quite annoyed with Canon for not including the hood for a lens this expensive and then having the nerve to charge $ for it. This is a really easy decision - a hood is not that complicated, and this one works as well as any OEM hood I've owned. In fact I like it better than most because it has a push button locking mechanism that keeps it on securely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A low-priced alternative In the past, I have bought the authentic Canon lens hoods. I wanted a lens hood for my new EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM lens and the Canon lens hood was simply too expensive this time. The build quality seems on-par with my other Canon hoods. However, the Vello hood does not have the felt on the inside that the Canons have. One minor issue: The lens hood does not lock into place like it should. For me, it only locks into place when on the lens backward for storage. That said, I think it is adequately secure when in-use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the Canon 28mm f2.8 IS USM In some reviews, people stated that placing the hood on in reverse for easy storage was a tough fit, but it works very well on the 28mm f2.8. Easy to place on, easy to take off, and no problem storing it in reverse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Value I bought the Vello lens hood for my new Canon 24mm f/2.8 IS USM instead of the Canon OEM hood primarily due to the outrageous cost of the Canon product. The Vello is constructed of high quality engineered plastic and is of sound design and functionality. Others reviewers have noted this hood doesn't lock in place properly every time. This is true of my copy as well, but I think in time the catch tab will wear in properly and fit snugly. I'd rather have a snug fitting hood than a loose one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works as advertised. I was hesitant after reading the earliest reviews of this item from back in 2013, which mentioned the hood would not lock in place. I am glad to find out that is not a problem with the one I bought in December 2016. Sure it is just a piece of plastic and feels somewhat flimsy, but having owned a few Canon lens hoods over the years I would say the OEM ones are the same in that regard.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is a hood...it works! I saved a little money by buying this Vello hood, and it works fine when mounted on the lens. It gets a little cranky though when mounting it reversed for storing. I have run into this many times on 3rd party hoods, so no surprise. It does work, but is sometimes fidgety, getting it in the right groove.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hood I use this on my Canon 28/2.8 IS lens. It's less than half the price of the Canon hood, and accomplishes the same thing without feeling like junk. Unfortunately it doesn't always lock on, but it does remain in place. For the money it's good.
