  • Good replacement for original

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Fits easily to my EF-S 18-55 IS (450D Kit objective)

    - Never visible in the image frame, i.e. it has the correct dimensions for 18 mm.

    - Not large enough to ever get in the way. Always on the objective.

    - Softens any bump to the objective, since it is not completely hard plastic.

    - Looks good

    -

    Cons:

    - Only blocks light coming in at very wide angle, but this is more a limitation of the objective since the front turns on focus and therefore the hood has to be symmetric (unlike e.g. SKU 10916).

    - Slightly tight to take on or off. Be careful not to break your objective's focus.

    OtherThoughts:

    A cap with central grip like SKU 5485 is probably a good combination with this hood, as the lens cap becomes slightly less easy to remove.

    Bottomline:

    Recommended buy. Removes some light, gives some protection against bumps and is really not in the way (given that it fits your bag).
