Great value! – Lens Hood for Canon EW-73B Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheap but doesnt look cheap, feels well made and fits tight on the 17-85 IS USM.
Cons:
Well..if there is one thing it must be the tiny little drop of spilled silver paint on the edge (where it doesnt belong).
Other:
Canon charges more than 5 times the money for this... I didnt go for the JJC version as on several forums this was described as a low quality lenshood. I didnt expect this was much better but for this money it was worth a try and i am NOT dissapointed!
Bottomline:
If you got a 17-85 IS USM and are looking to buy the lenshood from Canon be sure to try this one first.
