Should have come standad with the lens...
on May 15, 2014
You really do want one of these on your lens! This is the hood for the EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens that goes on an EOS-M Canon (mirror-less) camera.
Major advantage - It helps protect the lens! It's designed to help with light flares and this does work. This is a real Canon OEM lens hood, and it fits perfectly, easily on, and off. (Off brand hoods have a bad habit of fitting too tight). I love mine.
Message to Canon -- really Canon? why don't you include one of these as a standard with the lens?? You really need to!
