Very good! – Lens Hood for Canon EW-73B Reviews

posted by skocko76 on 03/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
-Very good, fits snugly
-Can be mounted reverse on the lens
- The inside is matte
- It feels sturdy enough
- You can't tell it's off brand
- Finishing is very good
Cons:
-It says "For Canon" not "Canon" but it figures
-It doesn't have the little red dot for aligning
Other:
I haven't owned an original hood so I cannot compare, but this one will break if you sit on it or whatever. I suppose it's the same with the original.
I suppose the inside rails could break if you treat it rough, but I always go easy on all my equipment so I'm ok.
Bottomline:
There's no reason to pay big bucks for a piece of plastic.
Buy this one.
