I added this lens hood with my purchase of a Canon 60D with 18-135mm kit lens and have experienced no problems. Always great when heading outside on a shoot and it's red dot allows you to easily align and attach it on your lens.

You just can't go wrong, so if it's compatible with your lens I would highly recommend this accessory.

Cheap

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...Read complete review

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.

Great 2-lens kit - Glad I sprung for it.

Comments about Vello EW-73B Dedicated Lens Hood:

Needed a wide angle lens to take real estate photos. The 10-18mm works great. the bonus was the 50mmf/1.8. I am sure that will come in handy for other uses. At the price, I couldn't resist.

Hard to put on, cannot invert.

Comments about Vello EW-73B Dedicated Lens Hood:

This hood is rather hard and tricky to put on - it does not fall into its natural place from which it needs to get twisted, one has to press on it and apply notable torque to get it on track, which is not good for the lens - can break the lens. Once twisted and clicked, it is pretty snug and sits well, but to get it sliding into the right position is unpleasantly unnatural. I was also surprised to find that it cannot be put on the lens in flipped/inverted position for storing or carrying - very surprising, and awkward, it does not really take much to produce invertable hood, I have another lens with Sigma hood that is invertable and convenient.

Terrible  Fit

Comments about Vello EW-73B Dedicated Lens Hood:

just received the Vello EW-73B hood for my wife's lens.
It is so tight to mount and does not even fully lock into position.
I have been a  pro photographer for over 30 years so I know how to mount a bayonet style lens hood.  Buy the Canon OEM hood as this one is terrible !!!

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.
