Product Description

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact. Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

It fit perfectly on my Canon 55-250mm and my 18-55mm lens.

The lens hood is very difficult to attach and detach, and it worries me that I will break the lens as I try to fit it on the mount.
S. Heckard
Just as good as the official Canon lens hood but so much cheaper.

I am happy to confirm all the good things said about this lens hood by the previous posters. Also, this hood is deep enough to protect the lens and shield it from stray light. I used this hood when taking 1500 photos with my Canon 55-250 lens and there was no sign that it affected the photo in any way.

I am very impressed with Fotodiox as a supplier of camera accessories. I now have hoods for two lenses and lens caps, all very well made and purchased for a fraction of what I would have had to pay for the equivalent from Canon or other suppliers.

You will need a center-pinch lens cap if you use this hood. The Fotodiox lens cap sold by Amazon would be a good choice.

This lens hood seems to be pretty much an exact match for the much more expensive Canon-branded product. It mounts perfectly and seems to be well made. I have no problem recommending it.

Well, I'm impressed.

Once again, an aftermarket company makes a product that is the OEM's equal in every way, only at a much better price!

These hoods use the lens's bayonet mount, and can be reversed on the lens for storage, just like the ones made by Canon. They are the right length to prevent vignetting on their recommended lenses. I also bought one for my kit lens and it is just as nice as this one I got for my EF 75-300 II.

Great product, outstanding deal.

I love this lens hood! I wish I would have ordered it three years ago! I've been using lens hoods on all my big lenses, but hadn't ever gotten around to getting one on my 55-250mm IS lens... What was I thinking?

The lens hood came early, was the exact item I ordered and works marvelously! Slipped right on first try, reverses perfectly as mentioned by others for storage. Love it! I take a lot of photos in the early morning and late evening sun and this is just what I've needed. I shoot with a Canon 100-400mm L IS lens quite a bit and never shoot without it. I've recently started using this 55-250 IS lens again quite a bit and man, I needed this lens hood. Very, very pleased.

Some people may need to know that the lens hood does go on very easily if you put it on the correct way. When it's fitted properly, the Canon name will be at the bottom. I've seen some people try to mount it with the letters starting to the right of the top, but they need to start from the left side of the top and twist down until it locks into place with the Canon name on the bottom. No problem if you do that!

Great accessory, don't hesitate, it's just as promised!

It seems like this product is a hit or miss. Some reviews say it fits perfectly, some say it does not. I belong to the 2nd group. I tried to put it on 55-250 IS lens - for storing it on the hood, it fits perfectly, screws on and off really smoothly. To put it on for taking pictures is a different story - one of the blades seems to be a hair thicker than the rest. This makes it REALLY hard to put it on, I'm afraid I'm going to damage the lens, if I keep putting it on. It only goes on about a quarter of a turn... But it stays on securely then. But, it's a bit bigger in diameter than the lens, so, you can see daylight between the lens and the hood. I guess I'm going to have to shave that blade a little bit. If that won't work I'll throw it away. Also, I expected it to be a little sturdier. It's a shame, because it's a great looking hood for a great price. Oh, and shame on Canon for price gouging on their lens hoods! There's no way a small piece of plastic should cost that much...

UPDATE - after I shaved the blades it fits just fine.

I have a canon T2i with the 55-250mm lens and this hood fits perfect. When screwing on/off theres a bit of resistence however not bad at all and it makes you feel that its on securely. I also like the fact that it uses the threads on the outer part of the lens and not the inner part. It also has "Canon ET 60" stamped on it so it looks almost OEM. Makes your set-up look pro. My friend has an OEM and he was amazed at how much money I saved. Great for an OEM replacement or to just save some $$ as most of us do.

The fit was perfect and it has already protected my precious lens as it should. Does shield unwanted light from the side. I highly recommend it for your 58mm lens. It fits my Canon EF-S 55-250 lens perfectly.

I received this before the promised date. Came packaged great! My expectations were low because of the past reveiws..but I am pleasantly surprised! It fit perfectly on my Canon 55-250mm and my 18-55mm lens. I was worried about that but it fits great! I normally use a Tulip style and have been happy (every now and then a stray beam slips past the Tulip hood) so I wanted to try a Bayonet style to see if that would help elimnate that. I have only taken a couple of pics and haven't noticed that stray beam yet! The flip around, on lens storage is very convenient compared to using the Tulip style. Completely satisfied all around. Especially the price!
