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.

Solid hood. Stays on the lens with no issues. Allows you to mount it backwards on the lens for storage as well. A very tight fit, but it fits.

Perfect fit. Easy on and off. Much cheaper than the one from Canon, but just as good.

Like what other people have said, it's a little hard to put it on the lens at first, I almost gave up and thinking if I maybe got a deffective hood. I tried putting it on for about uhmm an hour :p. Until finally, I looked closely to it to see how it should work, and was able to fit it on my lens. It takes a lot of practice, but for the price it's worth it.

I was skeptical about this hood in that it wasn't a genuine Canon however I had read a bit more insight elsewhere on this brand and opted to spend a bit more then the $4-5 ones posted. I received the hood a few days ago and admit it is a very snug fit and I am quite pleased with my decision. Highly recommended - a lot of bang for the buck. Sorry Canon, but $50 for a piece of plastic is merely overpricing and gauging.

IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT: I attempted to put this hood on as soon as it arrived AND had no success BUT DECIDED to wait for my husband to come home to see if he could install it. From my attempts and from all appearance I thought it had to be mismarked/not the right hood. I waited for my husband and he had the same problem. He thought as it was bayonet fit and my lens was threaded possibly bayonet style was incorrect for my lens and that I had ordered the wrong hood! I pulled out another lens with hood I had, that had given me no problems and looked at the way it was made. SAME LOOK about it. I took the new hood and the 70 x 300 and gave it another shot. Played a minute and ! WALLAH ! it fits, REPEAT, IT FITS, IT FITS but takes a firmer twist. No looseness, after the fact, a PERFECT, TIGHT fit. SO, DON'T DISPAIR IF YOUR EXPERIENCE IS THE SAME AS MINE, BE FIRM, BE FIRM, BE FIRM. It really is the right lens hood. I am so glad I HATE TO COMPLAIN which I will do if something is wrong but I am also glad I have patience, it's a good thing to have and saves so many headaches. :) :) :)

Don't get ripped off by Canon's hood, buy this! Perfect fit on my EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM. The snap alerts me that I have got it fully secured on the lens. Because it's a bayonet style I can simply turn the hood around to keep it on my lens all the time. Great product! I would recommend this over the $45 Canon hood any day!

Ive bought this hood for my Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM lens and it fits perfectly, I found it really easy to clip on and off and it mounts backwards onto the lens for easy storage. I was concerned because a lot of the reviews mentioned that the hood was a tight fit or did not fit at all - I'm so glad I decided to go ahead and purchase this regardless of the previous reviews, considering the price, I thought whats there to loose! Well in fact I lost nothing - This hood is made of a good and strong plastic, Ive used it now for over two months constantly switching it between my different lenses. Fantastic buy!

Good fit for the 70-300 IS USM. You've got to know how to install it: insert it and turn it clockwise until it snaps in place.

The hood fits well into my EF 70-300 IS USM (non DO). It has two flaps that align with the front of the lens and lock by turning the hood. To remove, just turn the other way to unlock and voila! I have no idea what other reviewers are talking about when they mention that they had to push hard to get the hood on/off. The only comment I have is that because the front element of the EF 70-300 IS USM rotates as it focuses, it helps if you hold that element with your hands to prevent it from rotating (or damaging the AF!) as you lock/unlock the hood.

I assume this hood is manufactured so its dimensions are similar to the Canon brand one. I used this hood for a while and have not noticed any vignetting at any focal length/aperture combination with the 70-300.
