Bought to use with the new Canon 35mm f/2 IS lens. Together with the center-pinch lens caps, this lens hood has an improved design that has a button to lock it in place (similar to Nikon hoods...and caps). It works great.

I also use it in conjunction with a 67mm Heliopan Variable ND filter. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to use the hood at the same time, but you can. It's a bit tight, but the hood does fit with the filter on. (Keep in mind, the variable ND filter is just a tad wider than a normal 67mm filter due to the ridges for rotating the front element). The other issue is that the filter is a bit recessed into the hood...combined with a snug fit, it takes a bit of effort to rotate the filter. Not the end of the world, it still works.

EDIT: upon further inspection, due to the integration of the locking button, the mounting area (bayonet part if you will) is thicker/deeper than the previous Canon lens hood design. With the old design, the sides of filters are exposed completely inside the hood. With the new locking-button design, there is a well of ~8mm, so filters are recessed into this well...and makes it harder to rotate my variable nd filter. This also might pose a problem if you use larger filters w/ step-up rings.

Similarly, the center-pinch lens caps are thicker as well, due to its inherent design.

The EF 35 2.0 IS USM is my favorite walk around lens and lives on my 6D most of the time. The EW-72 hood protects the front element from dust, fingerprints, doggie noses, rain and flare. Canon knows shooters are suckers for OEM accessories and puts the screws to you with a hefty price tag. So what does 54 greenbacks buy you? A well made plastic hood with matte paint perfectly matched to the lens finish, rayon flocking to nix stray reflections, an easy squeeze tab release, a Canon logo and "Made in Japan" inscription. The lightly textured matte finish, unlike most Canon hood finishes, is fingerprint resistant!

The bayonet design is different from other hoods. Rather than a tight groove, this hood fits loosely while being twisted on. It only locks tight at the optimal position (cutouts horizontal). To remove the hood, press the release tab while twisting. The purpose of the new design was to prevent users from installing the hood incorrectly and justify a higher MAP.

I'm not a fan of screw-in hoods but if a Vello EW-72 clone were available I'd be all over it. I don't regret my purchase--I knew what I was getting into--but buyers should know this $54 hood is not any better made than Canon's $24 dedicated hoods. It merely costs more. Basically this is an attractive and well designed hood priced at twice the price it should be.

UPDATE 11/16/2013: An inexpensive ($14) EW-72 clone is finally available: RainbowImaging HEW72 Lens Hood Replaces CANON Lens Hood EW-72, for Canon EF 35mm F/2 IS USM Lens. I haven't tried it but it appears to be a very similar design, right down to the release tabs. I own a couple Rainbow Imaging hoods in other sizes and they are decent in build but not nearly as nice as the OEM versions.

A bit expensive, but the locking feature on these newer lens hood are pretty good. Older ones typically rotate on their mount and show up in photos, but these do a better job at staying in place. Although the first wedding I shot using this hood, I almost lost it as it popped off in the woods. A little gaffers tape to hold it on. Still better than the old ones, but not perfect.

I always buy L series lenses, but wanted this version over the older L because of the IS and newer optics. It's great, and it seemed wrong to put an off brand lens hood on it... I like the fit and feel, and the inside coating with felt or whatever that is, is a nice touch. Works great.

Helps meter light better and adds additional lens protection.
I like the locking button but the lock is not totally necessary.
