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.

But the price is simply crazy and that takes a star off.
Also, this is the hood that falls off the lens the most of all lenses I have. It's almost like I am living with stripped threads. I have already lost one of these hoods and have had to walk my way through a packed venue in order to retrieve it multiple times. - 1 star for that
Anyway... yes. You can buy a cheaper knock-off lens hood for about half the price. However a lens hood is not a decorative object just stuck on the end of your lens to make your lens look big. It IS serving a purpose. You want to reduce flare on a capture, so you're attempting to eliminate stray light hitting the lens surface. Buy a cheap Chinese knock-off hood, and what do you see? A nicely polished glossy interior to the hood. Canon's hood has a flocking on the interior of the hood which is designed to cut down on the light hitting the lens surface.
