  • Great hoodie

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Bought for canon xsi 18-55 mm IS lens and fits decently well

    - Great replacement or buy if you don't have a hood already

    - doesn't look too bad compared to real ones

    - not visible when shooting without flash

    Cons:

    - it will be visible when you use the internal flash at 18 MM range and above 35ish mm. Basically when your lens is extended phyiscally

    - a little tough to put on at first, be sure to put your ring on MF to reduce risk of damaging motor.

    OtherThoughts:

    Provides protection and blocks out the light that does not form images.

    Try going for a lens hood in the shape of a pedal, i bought that one as well. Circular hoods do not block out light as well as pedal form. However, pedal will be longer.

    Bottomline:

    buy it to protect your lens from abuse. Take it off when you use flash.
