Well priced alternative! – Lens Hood for Canon EW-73B Reviews

posted by AfricaDave on 10/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Looks like the original Canon hood
Fits the Canon 18-135 lens (although slightly tight).
It even has the "for Canon EW-73B" printed on it
Well built considering the price.
Can still attach/detach lens cover
Can still operate circular polorising filters.
Cons:
Has a slightly tight fit on my canon 18-135 lens but not hampering in any way (minor con).
Slightly tricky operating a circular polorising filter with the hood attached but still possible. I'm not sure if the original hood is any better in this regard. (so also a minor con).
Dosnt look like it can fit on backwards for storage.
Other:
Bottomline:
Great buy for the price! at a fraction of the price of the Canon hood. It makes your lens look a little more pro... Oh and it also blocks out unwanted glare.
