Honestly, probably doesn't make much of a difference in image quality. I have yet to shoot a picture without a lens hood so I'm no judge of this. That said, there are some good reasons to get it anyway...
1. The hood is what I grab onto whenever I manually focus. This is something other people forget about, but the 18-55 kit lens has a very small ring to try to grip when you manually focus. I mean, it's tiny. Since the hood rotates along with the focus ring, you can just grab the hood instead. When you're behind the viewfinder you're going to be feeling around for the focus ring anyway so having something bigger to lurch for is really handy.
2. When you put the lens down, you can just rest it front down. Because the hood makes a nice little base, you don't have to worry about it rolling away. Don't try this with the camera body attached.
3. It protects the lens from bumping into stuff and scratching. Sure you can get a UV filter, but I don't like leaving a filter on there if I don't have to. I've bumped the hood against things, while if I had done the same thing with the UV filter, then I would have had to either clean the filter or buy a new filter. Theoretically a UV filter can slightly degrade image quality, especially if you're buying one commensurate to the kit lens. Theoretically this hood raises image quality.
4. It makes the camera look cooler.
That said, it's seriously overpriced for what it is. Just call it cheap insurance and get over it. If you're looking at this, you'll probably going to buy it anyway.
That being said, lenses such as the EF-S 18-55mm and EF 28-90mm are simply too wide at the low focal length to be able to use a very big hood (it would interfere with the photo if it were bigger) which is probably Canon made this an optional accessory in the first place (higher end Canon lenses usually come with a hood)
As for function, the EW-60C does an "okay" job. If the light is too far forward of an angle, it will let some flare into the lens (more so than larger hoods would) but it is better than no hood at all. It does a GREAT job of protecting the front element- something I found out the first day I took my camera out with this hood and ended up face down in the dirt when I was tripped up on some sticker vines! (The hood survived as well, testament to the quality of the plastic used!) It also gives you a bigger gripping area when you manually focus the lens- a plus considering the focus ring on these lenses are a bit small.
All in all, it's more of a "nice thing to have" rather than a "must have." It's as good as it can be, adds a few nice things to the lens, in my opinion is better than nothing, and the best you can get for the lenses it's made for. (much better than those horrid screw on "professional tulip style" hoods you get for $4.00- don't waste your money on those!!!
The inner side of the hood is specially coated to reduce glare. This coating, called "flock," gives the inner surface a non-reflective matte texture.
The EW-60C is designed specifically for the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (AKA the "kit" lens), the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, the EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 USM, the f/4-5.6 III/II USM, the EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, the EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 III/II, and the EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 IV USM/ V USM lenses. The optical properties of these lenses is taken into account in the design (such as the depth and shape) of the lens hood.
Do not try to fit your lens with hoods designed for lenses with different focal lengths or you might run into a problem with vignetting (a phenomenon where the edges of a picture are darkened). Although there are "cooler" looking lens hoods, such as one with a "petal" design, they will not work properly unless they are designed for your lens.
There are also "generic" (or "knock off") versions of this hood made by other manufacturers, such as ...Read more ›
