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

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Cheap
- Does what it should
Cons:
- Still a bit pricey for a simple plastic ring but in the end much cheaper than the one from canon.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
If you don't have one: Simply buy it. You won't get it cheaper elsewhere.
