Product Description

ADAPT RING 6

Manufacturer's Description

One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles.

The first reviewer, explaining the "odd" design, almost put me off, but I took a chance and bought this hood. It's better than OK, and if I lost it, I would certainly buy a replacement. I do agree with the first reviewer - if I were designing a hood, it would not be like this, BUT IT DOES WORK and it also looks quite normal. I leave the metal adaptor ring permantly screwed into the lens. The original lens cap just clips into the adaptor as it has the same internal diameter as the lens itself. When stored in my camera bag, the plastic hood can clipped in back to front so that the whole unit is compact. When removing the hood and then clipping it in the right way round, it probably takes just half a second longer than the more conventional bayonet fitting.

I was going to award this 4 stars because of the unusual design, but as there is no competition and it does the job, I decided to up this to 5 stars.

I use this ES-62 Hood on my 50mm f1.8 canon lens. It came with a metal adaptor ring which screws into the front of the lens nicely and once this is in place, I find that its not as tricky to clip on the lens hood as others suggest. Granted, its not quite as easy as a bayonette fitting, but if you look at what you're doing while doing it, it goes on fairly quickly and securely without too much effort.
I cannot say that it has changed the shots that I have taken in any dramatic way, but I do know the effect stray light can have coming into the lens and so I didn't hesitate to buy it. The lens feels more protected and looks like a more serious bit of kit with it on. My camera bag is big enough to accomodate the lens with the hood on, so it keeps things simple.
I recommend it if you can afford it.

Does the job but it is little awkward at first to both put on and take off. I think the problem lies in the two release points which are opposite each other and which you squeeze to retract the bayonets that grip the retaining ring (which screws into the front of the lens). When you squeeze the release points the hood distorts slightly making it awkward. Knowing this I use only slight pressure with a turn of the hood to remove and the same care when putting it on (without the turn) you can see which bayonets have not engaged, therefore its not that hard to sort. My issue is that I don't have much faith in the bayonets holding up to any accidental knocks! If it breaks I will look at an EW hood. That said I am happy with it and prefer the full hood.

This lens hood is in two pieces. The mounting ring has a thread fitting, rather than bayonet, and the hood itself clips subtly onto a groove in the mounting ring. (This fact is not mentioned in the product description.)

There are a number of problems.

1. The mounting ring lengthens the physical lens by about 5mm. While this doesn't seem much, it can make the difference between fitting in somewhere and not fitting.

2. The thread appears to be very poor quality. It's difficult to line up with the lens mounting thread, and does not turn smoothly - there is a rasping feel to it, and the force needed to turn it varies as you go.

3. I normally use a (Hoya) UV filter as a protector. According to the lens manual, the lens hood mounting ring should be attached to the lens, and any filters to the ring. However, if I want to avoid problem 1, I need to detach it, but then I need to fiddle with the filter as well.

4. Attaching the hood to its ring is extremely difficult and hard to align - when it clicks, it really feels like luck.

5. Reverse mounting the hood for storage is equally awkward. In this case, too, on the EF-S f/1.8 50mm lens, this obstructs the manual focus ring and makes manual focussing impossible.

In general, I think the Canon accessories are of a quality which is worth the "extra" compared with their non-Canon replacements. But, frankly, looking at both the design and usability, and at the finish of this item, it doesn't feel like a Canon product, and is definitely *not* worth 18 quid.

I've returned it.

Great lens Hood for Canon 50mm 1.8 II. I bought a fake chinese lens hood for the same lens and it was very bad. This is amazing! Very high plastic level and matter. Great attachment to the Lens and great way to caring the light. The product is composed from two different parts. The one that you connect to the lens, is like a plastic ring with a screw, and the second one, which you attach to the ring, is the hood. These two pieces together protrude a little bit, that's very good for caring light in the right way. You can spend money for this hood just one time and use it for all your 52mm lenses (if you check your 50mm cap of the lens has got 52mm as size for hood). It will cost more, but it's about 18£. And you know when you touch it that's Canon. It worths every single penny! Good product!

Item arrived next day, despite selecting 3-5 day, so that was nice.

The actual hood -

Good quality build like you would expect from Canon and serves its purpose. Yes it is funny having the adaptor, but I screwed it on and forgot about it.

It makes the lens look a bit more bulky which is nice on such a tiny lens, and protects the front element too.

The mechanism is different, there are 4 pins which you have to line up, this take some getting used to, but its not worth buying another type just because of this, after a few tries I found it quite easy.

Definitely buy this, don't let the weird mechanism put you off.
