This is the third lens hood I've purchased for my new Canon T5i 18-55mm kit lens with stepping motor. I tried two other hoods that did not fit and eventually realized that this seems to be the only hood that fits Canon's newest version of this lens. The hood fits perfectly snug and is of quality construction. Before purchasing this hood, I read the poor reviews that complained of a loose fit but I believe that those consumers bought this hood for the older version of Canon's 18-55mm kit lens. Although both lens hoods are 58mm, the newer version of this lens has a slightly larger diameter connection, thus making this hood fit loose on the older lens. Hope this helps...happy shooting!

I am quite disappointed with this hood. It attaches to the lens, but it won't stay on if the camera is bumped or even placed into my camera bag. I even took it to a friend who is a long-time photography teacher at the university in town, and he couldn't get it to fit better either.

Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

This is not easy to attach and doesn't ever feel secure. It wouldn't hurt to try an off brand and save a little money.

Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

Fits properly and stays on. This lens hood is the right one for the lens as shown in the description. I read reviews saying that it doesn't stay on, I think maybe the reviewer had the wrong hood for the lens.

Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

I bought this lens hood for use on my EF-S 18-55 mm lens. It differ from the others in the mount . It fit on outside the lens and this avoid the over tightening of similar hoods that fitted in the thread of the filter. Second, I can use the whole focal length without include with the scene. That is, it is wide enough.

Hood is fine as long as it stays on. I have difficulty locking it on 2nd one I bought and both seem to have the same flaw

Awesome product. Easy to get on and off. Small enough to fit anywhere in any camera bag. Definitely saw a difference in my pictures since using the Lens hood. I highly recommend every photographer have one.

Not all lens hoods are alike

By Kelika14

Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

I initially ordered the wrong lens hood. Apparently my research neglected the fact that the newer lenses required a new lens hood and that the EW-60c would not fit the Canon EOS Rebel sl-1. That said, I am reordered the correct lens hood and it works like a charm. No fiddly screwing it on and later having it fall off at the just the wrong moment. It may be overkill but I also ordered a higher end UV filter. Just practice for possibly buying a high end lens. It feels good to know that there is protection on the end of my camera lens now.

Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

Official lens came in Canon box with Canon paperwork and was well packaged and shipped quickly. This lens hood will sit neatly inside the nifty fifty lens hood to save space in your camera bag (if you also have the 550mm f/1.8 STM lens hood). Its the official Canon lens its light and works well. What more do you want?

    Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

    I use a hood when I am outside photographing my kids. I didn't know if it was the right hood for my lens because of the way it fit, so I recommended calling and asking. Even though the description mentioned my camera and lens, it was off by a hair. I wound up returning it for a better fit and it's great!

      Comments about Canon EW-63C Lens Hood for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

      This is a genuine Canon product that is well made and sturdy. However, It does not fit the 18-55
      EF-S kit lens that comes with many Canon Cameras. It WILL fit the 18-55 IS STM lens.
      I did not realize this until I received it. Had to return it for credit.
      Despite my error in ordering, B&H made returning it as easy as can be. Thank you B&H for your always superior service.

          I purchased the hood to go with the rain cover I also bought and it works great to help keep the cover on and keeps the sun glare out of my photos.
