    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Cheap

    - Does what it should

    Cons:

    - Still a bit pricey for a simple plastic ring but in the end much cheaper than the one from canon.

    OtherThoughts:

    A lens hood is a very simple way to improve your pictures. I really can't think of a reason why canon don't include one with the lens - apart from making some extra money of course.

    To avoid damaging the micro motor focus in most EF-S Lenses you have to switch to MF bevor mounting or unmounting the lens hood. This has of course nothing to do with the design of the lens hood.

    Bottomline:

    If you don't have one: Simply buy it. You won't get it cheaper elsewhere.
