mostly for protection – Lens Hood for Canon EF-S Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
it's the same size of the original. mine came branded as if it were original which is weird. it removes flares from some extreme positioned lights (80 and up degrees)
Cons:
Quality control is not the best, and it came a little to tight, so it wouldn't fit in my 18-55mm canon. sand paper fixed the problem in 10 seconds.
Other:
Is not very useful 'cause of the size, it has to be small to prevent vignetting in a rotating lens. but it's so small that it reduces its usefulness.
Bottomline:
Buy it for physical protection of you lens, not to avoid the flares.
