Years ago I went to a lecture by Ernst Wilde, MR. Hasseblad himself, where he showed the difference that a lens hood would make on a Hasseblad lens. Since then I have always used them faithfully on every lens I own. The longer the lens, the more efective the lens hood can be if it is specifically designed for that lens. This is the hood Canon has for their medium telephoto lenses, the 85f1.8, 100usm macro, and 135mmf2.8 lenses. The hood will protect your lens from dust, scratches, damage, while at the same time preserving the maximum contrast your lens can deliver. This differs from a filter, that will take away from the inherit lens sharpness and contrast. A analogy is wearing a baseball cap which will improve your vision and protect your eyes from cataracts, while not distorting your vision like sunglasses will.
This is a Canon original equipment hood. I almost gave up on finding one since many sellers seem to be out of stock on the ET-65III, which is the hood I needed for my EF-85mm F/1.8 USM lens. I began to wonder if Canon had discontinued it for some reason. I found many substitutes, but I try to buy original equipment since there's a lot of junk out there in the aftermarket (and of course some good stuff that's not OEM too, admittedly).
The picture on Amazon seems to hint that this hood is gray. It's not. It's black, and a perfect match for my lens in terms of color. The picture also hints that the hood is NOT tapered. But in fact it is, with a nice 0.5" diameter increasing taper over its length.
As noted in many other reviews, the EF-85mm F/1.8 USM lens does NOT have the more traditional twist-n-lock feature for a lens hood. Rather, it has a simple recessed band 360 degrees around the end of the lens. It's in to this band that the spring loaded clips of the lens hood insert for mounting.Read more ›
I've used those collapsible rubber hoods before while in college, but this hood is definitely worth the investment: well built, fits backward on the lens for storage (but too long while the lens is on the camera), and provides good protection for the front of the lens (it's quite deep).
Note that this will NOT fit the newer 50mm f/1.8 Mark II version (all plastic mount with no distance scale).
Photographers often state the protective abilities of a hood as a reason to have one. This hood being a solid conical two inch long offers some protection from keeping moisture and wind blown debris off the from lens element. There is nothing more irritating than reviewing your images to find dust spots or other flaws. When in place, the hood can protect the lens from impacting solid objects. Replacing a damaged hood is usually cheaper than repairing or replacing a lens.
This hood is manufactured for the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8, EF 100mm f/2.0, EF 135mm f/2.8 with Softfocus, EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM lenses and normally is not included with the lens when sold new. Amazon often suggests purchasing one with your lens, and is worth considering.Read more ›

Not much to say... It's a lens hood. It blocks out unwanted light away from your lens.Published 1 month ago by Scott B.
Does what its supposed to do. I wish it were the twist and turn type hood but since the 85mm f1.8 USM lens is so old and hasn't been updated this is what we have. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Rebecca B.
