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.

Don't Let the Sun Ruin Your Shot

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

The EW-63C lens hood shades unwanted sun flare from spoiling your photo. Just line up the red dots give a twist until it clicks on and you're ready to shoot. You can remove it and reverse mount it if you want to store the lens on the camera in a holster bag.

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

What can be said that isn't obvious? It's a plastic lens hood. It fits well, does what a lens hood is supposed to do, and doesn't generally get in my way. I considered getting a cheaper one, but I was concerned about them not fitting very well. I don't regret getting the official Canon hood.

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.

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.

The best lens hood I have ever buy !

By Haitham

from El Cajon, California

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
