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

Pros:
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.
Cons:
It's the ordinary round type. Other than that no real cons.
Other:
Bottomline:
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.
