OK hood, but not as nice as Canon's
on May 24, 2012
This is an OK hood that's a lot cheaper than the genuine Canon ET-65B product. But, you may want to spend the extra money and get the Canon hood instead.
Differences between the Fotodiox hood and the Canon hood are:
1. The Canon hood is coated with a black matte felt-like material on the inside surface which guarantees that there will not be any light reflection off the hood and into the lens, the Fotodiox hood does NOT have this coating and does reflect light.
2. The Canon hood had a nice tight/secure fit. The Fotodiox hood is slightly loose and wobbles.
Will I keep it? Probably. $5 is a lot cheaper than Canon's $45 price tag.
