Just as Good as the Canon brand
on January 21, 2012
I have used Canon equipment since I was a high school photographer for both my Yearbook and student newspaper in the 1980's. I have since converted to Digital photography and once again picked Canon. I own the 60mm Macro EF-S lens, and this hood fits it perfectly. The lens has a "dedicated" mount, meaning it is designed for a lens hood to be fitted to it. You simply line up the hood with the ridge mounts on the very front edge of the lens, and twist it on. It solidly locks in place and will not come off. This hood even has the "Canon" logo on it in very small letters next to "for ET-67B". The ONLY difference I see is that most Canon brand hoods have small "nylon" wheels that do the sliding when you twist them on a camera lens. I guess that is so the hood is "gentler" on the lens mounts. After a few years and many mounts/dis-mounts, these nylon areas eventually wear down and the hood slips on easier and easier eventually making the fit feel kind of "loose". I'll have to see how this one compares over time, but I don't think it will be an issue. Also, some Canon lens hoods actually have a "felt like" material on the inside portion of the hood to eliminate any light flairs. This knock-off does not have that, but most people buy a hood to protect the lens in the case of being dropped or impacting something when it is in use so...bottom line is, this seems to be a good bargian, espicially at 1/3 the price of a Canon hood. I mean really, they are all just plastic anyway.
