1)Some degree of Protection in case you drop the lens/camera- the idea is that the hard plastic will absorb the impact and either get damaged or pop off the lens, therefore the glass of the lens and the lens body won't be affected.
2)Blocks stray light from getting into the image-If you are shooting in strong light this will limit the light that enters the lens to only what you are shooting at (there is actually felt inside the lip of the hood to absorb additional light). This will prevent lens flare or spots on the image.
3)Allows you to shoot against glass/other surfaces- This is particularly useful if you are shooting in an aquarium or a museum and want to avoid the reflection of existing light on the light. With the hood you can press against the glass, eliminating stray light.
This particular lens hood is very well made, with felt on the inside and perfect fit for the 50 f/1.4 lens. Because the lens is prime (fixed) it is a regular cylinder shape and does not extend that far past the lens (maybe an inch and a half).
It twists on and off the lens easily. When it's on, it's very snug and secure. Kind of pricy for a piece of plastic, but Canon's in business to make money.
That said, I also have to rate products considering what the price should be. Was it complicated to make? Are the materials expensive? For something that cost a couple dollars to make, I don't think it should be selling for (the low low price of) fifteen times that. So, Canon gets a 0 out of 5 stars for that. So, I rate this a 2.5 stars out of 5 overall. If I had to do it over, I'd probably go to an auction site and buy a generic brand hood for 1/3 of the price.
update: i recently bought a generic hood for my canon 10-22mm and it feels as good as the canon hoods (less than 1/3rd the cost). i'll be buying generic from now on. enough with the canon hood price gouging.
The hood has done its job in eliminating peripheral glare. It does not, though, lock snugly in place... with only a slight twisting pressure the hood will unlock from the lens and is then loose. This is potentially a major annoyance, but perhaps I got a bad bottle cap...err I mean lens hood. There is also a sliver of space between the base of the hood and where it twist-locks with the lens; this is likely only an aesthetic concern, though not expected from a brand name lens hood.
Finally, it's a minor challenge to fit the lens cap onto the camera with the hood in place... and I worry about going in at a bad angle and scratching my lens. Maybe canon will make a lens hood cap accessory with a nice 'canon' logo that I can pay twenty bucks for... or maybe it should have just been included with the hood.
Reasons to buy any hood:
1. Protects the glass from your oily fingers when you reach for the camera. (I prefer not to use a UV filter - ghosting/degradation/etc)
2. Sacrifices itself rather than the front element if you drop the lens
3. Prevents lens flare (disclaimer: hasn't been an issue for me)
Reasons to buy THIS hood:
1. Black Matte interior on the inside of the hood that Canon applies is not found on 3rd party hoods
2. Fits lens appropriately, can be installed forward or backward
3. Holds value when combined with this exceptionally popular lens
Also, since you're buying this if you have the 50mm 1.4, it is a good idea to store the lens with the hood reversed, as it protects the auto-focus mechanism, which is very fragile on this particular lens.
