awesome – Lens Hood for Canon ET-60 Reviews

posted by FlavioSurf on 08/30/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
sturdy, feels good, inner and outer matte finish, can reverse and attach for easy storage, looks like original canon product but does not have the "Canon" label as seen in the photos. is slightly flexible but thick enough to feel high quality
Cons:
the threads do not fit the 55-250mm IS telephoto - they are too tight. You need to file them down so that they are thinner so that it can actually slide on and off the end of the lens. Take care to file it down enough that it can slide off without moving the focus ring (even if you switch it to MF and its not ruining the AF motor, I would much prefer that it fit better and did not move this part of the lens!)
Other:
much cheaper than the original canon product, but the threads issue was annoying. it was fixable with a little effort. recommended to purchase only if you shoot into sunlight alot and really really need the hood to reduce lens flares, otherwise not worth the effort for a "cheap accessory"
Bottomline:
None!!!
