Solid Lens Hood – Lens Hood for Canon EF-S Reviews

It's a bayonet type that is especially made to fit the Canon lens. Fits perfectly onto my EFS 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lens. The plastic seems solid yet flexible enough that it will survive being accidentally stepped on. It can be mounted backwards for situations where you do not need a lens hood.
It's the ordinary round type. Other than that no real cons.
The bottom line is if you're getting lens flare, i.e. circles of bright light coming from strong sources in your peripheral view then this item is for you. It's a lot cheaper than the official Canon branded accessory.
