If you don't have one - buy it now! – Lens Hood for Canon EF-S Reviews

- Cheap
- Does what it should
- Still a bit pricey for a simple plastic ring but in the end much cheaper than the one from canon.
A lens hood is a very simple way to improve your pictures. I really can't think of a reason why canon don't include one with the lens - apart from making some extra money of course.
To avoid damaging the micro motor focus in most EF-S Lenses you have to switch to MF bevor mounting or unmounting the lens hood. This has of course nothing to do with the design of the lens hood.
If you don't have one: Simply buy it. You won't get it cheaper elsewhere.
