One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles. Almost all EF and TS-E lenses have a Canon lens hood engineered specifically for it.

I like the hood. It works well limiting stray light as well as protecting the lens.
As you will hear from many experienced photographers (I'm an amateur), they would never shoot pictures without the hood on the lens so why would you?
All hoods are expensive for what they are, a piece of plastic, but they serve a necessary function.
Get the hood if you want the best from your lenses, including this lens the 50mm f1.8 II.
I would give it 5 stars but it is pricey.
However, please note: the lens hood is rather shallow (1 star reduction) and it is a screw-on two piece kit (1 star reduction). One piece is the adaptor that screws-on where the filters normally go (UV Filter) in front of the lens and is intended to be a permanent integral part of the lens and the second piece is the hood that snaps on and off this adaptor. The adaptor ring retains the same 52mm rim size so your protective filter can go before or after the adaptor.
(1 Bonus Star) Because $100 is still a bargain for a 50mm, f1.8, super fast, super sharp, super clear, light weight beginner lens and hood kit!
I hope this helps rather than confuse. :)
Please see my pictures to clearly see the problem. You press buttons on opposing sides to retract tabs in order to secure the hood to the threaded lens attachment; but pressing the buttons compresses the hood making it extremely difficult to attach. This makes de/re-taching the hood a very frustrating task. And because the hood is free-floating on the ring, you cannot remove the hood from the lens without first removing the hood from the attachment ring.
This design was so poorly implemented, I'm really surprised it is sold. This will sit in the box on my shelf. I wouldn't accept this if given to me for free. Get the simple Photodiox hood for less money and better design.
However, if you (like me) bought this lens for low-light work because of the f-stop, you're also buying this hood for the same reason I did: lens protection (vs lens flare.) Since it's the only one Canon offers currently, it's really your only bet.
Lens hoods are pretty much a necessity, but this has to be the mostly poorly made hood I've ever used. Unlike other hoods that screw on, this one requires you to press to opposing clips and then slide the hood one, and release the clips. This leads to problems of alignment, meaning both sides of the clip need to be perfectly aligned in order for the hood to fit right. Although it's a pain and I hate...I don't really have another alternative. Either go w/o a hood, or take this one. Either way, guess I'd rather have a hood on the lense than not having one.
but after receiving it, I quickly appreciated the ability to screw on the adapter and leave it on my lens, while still giving me freedom to place filters on it with no issues. The hood snaps on by pressing in on the two indents and carefully snapping the hood in place.
Your lens cap can also be placed on over your filter with no trouble, and reversing the hood on the lens is no problem. This is the ONLY lens hood that I would recommend for this lens. And I have to give a shout out to Adorama Camera for their fast delivery.
Update 4/24/07: I bought a rubber fold-up hood on eBay, and it's infinitely better than the Canon. It screws solidly into the hood adapter, and folds up out of the way when not in use. I highly recommend getting that instead of this garbage.
