Vello ES-52 overview

  • 1Description

The dedicated Vello ES-52 Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 40mm f/2.8 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.

This is a metal hood with a black matte finish.

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-52 reviews

    ES-52 Dedicated Lens Hood is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weird but maybe that's the lens The Canon pancake is kinda' odd, noticeably the autofocus with an extending barrel, but since coupling with the manual focus ring is by wire (electrical, not mechanical) you can't retract the barrel manually without slapping the lens on a powered on camera. But do it, otherwise you risk destroying the geartrain of your lens' autoficus system. Also odd, the hood is far forward compared to the glass and seemingly restricts the diameter of glass that is going to see the light. I suppose it's the whole point and calculated correctly to not cause vignette or worse. After all this, the hood seems OK during regular operation but to be fair I do not shoot this lens very often and maybe I need to rediscover it (on full frame for example as I only had a 7D so far). BTW this hood screws into the filter thread and offers another filter thread on its front side so you can stick your UV filter on top. As such it attaches very differently than traditional hoods, but due to its proper construction and correct filter threading in front & back, it doesn't seem to cause any problems. It is more weight for the focusing system to move around but that seems OK.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever little hood. This is a clever little hood for some extra protection for your lens that blocks some excess light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described! Great addition to my new 40mm pancake lens. Best to use out doors.
