Official Canon hood, not worth the price
on August 10, 2013
Bought the Canon EW-73B Lens Hood because I thought it would make a huge difference from the generic ones. We have used generics in the past, and felt the build quality wasn't quite there, but even with this Canon official product we see similar build quality.
The product itself has held up fine. It does product a great tool to help block out unnecessary light exposure.
You can find a lens hood of equal value for about half the price. I wouldn't recommend paying extra for a Canon branded lens hood.
