Most people have figured out that Canon doesn't include lens hoods with their EF-S line of lenses. Shame on them! This product offers the perfect reason to just say no to Canon's inflated price for lense hoods. The Pearstone version is made well, fits well with just the right amount of tension to not rattle or move when mounted, but easily removed and replaced as needed for space in the bag. Save your money to spend on better filters! or lighting, or whatever. This lense hood works great for me and saved me a little chunk of cash. SWEET!

Do the job, but it is pretty cheap (seems easy to break).
If you can, take a look at the original Canon part. Maybe you will choose to pay more for this one.
Of course, if your budget is limited, this is not a bad choice.

Comments about Vello EW-73B Dedicated Lens Hood:

Fits my Canon 18-135mm lens. True bayonet mount, 1/4 twist or so and its on securely. Only 4 stars cause it seems a little pricey.

    Fits the lens I bought it for, does what it's supposed to with respect to cutting glare, and protects the lens a little from bumps, fingerprints, etc.

                          This lens hood fits perfectly on the Canon 18-135mm lens. It aligns with the lens easily and after a twist, the detents work very well. It is a precision product and feels secure once installed. And it works equally well in the reverse position for storing the hood on the camera's lens.
