Top Customer Reviews
While the 50mm f/1.8 is an exceptionally affordable lens and produces great photos, it has substantial weak points due to its plastic construction that prevent the use of a lens hood. The lens hood is very susceptible to sideways knocks which are exacerbated when the lens hood is attached. I bumped mine and as most people found, the front element dropped off. The interior of the lens is held together by four plastic clips. One or more of the tabs will be broken and while it is possible to re-attach it, the lens will be wobbly or have a much grittier auto-focus noise.
So, buyers beware: The increased leverage on the front element produced by this lens hood will break apart the lens upon a sideways impact especially when the front element is extended.
But again, for 1/3 the price of Canon's, it's still a great deal.
So, I'm leaving it on for now, but think I'll end up removing it and tossing it in a drawer.
I noticed a difference, and that's what matters.

Fits correctly, does the job without paying Canon's exorbitant price for a hood that doesn't work any better. Keeps out stray light and provides a bit of mechanical protection.Published 10 days ago by David R. Voth
