Nice tulip shape. Screw mount. – Massa Camera Lens Hood (for 52mm Diameter Lens) Reviews

Pros:
No vignetting on my 50mm f1.8 mk II canon lens. Uses a screw mount. Well, this is my first experience with a lens hood, so I am not sure what the conventional lens hood mount is like. But this works pretty ok. Works very well to prevent lens flares and increase the saturation of my images on bright sunny days.
Cons:
Because it uses a screw mount, it is not that convenient to be screwed on. In that, it means it's not as easy as 1-2-3 to screw the thing onto the lens. But you'll get used to it. Also, you cannot mount it the reverse way to store it in your camera bag.
Other:
It's a good lens hood because this is the optimum shape for a lens hood. A conventional cylindrical one or other shapes are trade-offs. A tulip shaped one like this one works best and costs pretty much for the real one.
Bottomline:
This one works just fine so get this for your 50mm today :)
