Works Just As Well as the Canon Model

I use this product with the Canon 55-250mm IS lens, and I have never had a problem with the hood. There is no reason to shell out more money for the same piece of plastic with the Canon name printed on it. If you're looking for a nice hood and don't care about advertising the Canon name on every single piece of your gear, save a few bucks and buy this model.

Great Fit

Comments about Vello ET-60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

It fits great. It's just what the doctor ordered to keep out the sun glare. It also fits my 18-55 lens which wasn't listed.

Vello Hood is ok!

By Susan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vello ET-60 Dedicated Lens Hood:

My only wish is that it was a tad bit more sturdy. Knocked it the other day and screwing area cracked a bit
Can still use just thankful it wasn't as expensive as canon hood!

          This hood does not fit my lens. I even took the uv filter off and thought that would make the difference but it still not go on. Very happy with the rest of the order.

                Light weight and thin but seems strong enough for most everyday shooting. The cap was easy to install. Reverses for easy storage with lens.

                          Did not fit my Canon EF-S 55-250mm STM lens. The plastic tabs that hold the hood on the lens were too wide. I speculate that this was designed for the prior version of this lens. Luckily it fit my Canon 28-90mm lens perfectly.

                          This lens hood fits great and functions just as the canon one does but for a lot less. Unless your a name brand freak, this is the route to go. Great product all around including durability of material.
