1.0 out of 5 stars Cheapness shows
Arrived today, wouldn't screw into my Canon 500D standard lens, nor the telephoto. Finally got it to screw into my UV filter when it was off the lens but had a hell of a job getting it off again. The screw thread is abrading and has worn the thread on my UV filter, so I won't be reattaching it for fear of never being able to unscrew it. Will now have to pay for the proper...

Having searched through what was available on Amazon and in retail shops I opted for this, deciding to go for the cheap option. Delivery was quick and the product is as described, a plastic crown shaped hood that does the job perfectly. Its sturdy enough with an easy grip locking ring,a decent product, worth the money.

but the hood serves well.

This review is from: 58mm Crown-Shaped Hood for Canon 1100D 1200D 100D 600D 550D 700D 70D 50D 60D 70D,7D,EOS EFS 18-55mm EF 28-90mm EF 28-105mm EF 50mm Lens, clamp collar nut, 58mm filter, Nikon, Tamron, Tokina, Sigma, Fuji, Pentax and other lens with a 58mm front thread diameter. (Electronics)
This hood is not suitable for image stabilising or non-USM lenses, in my opinion. If your lens rotates during focussing, you need a "normal" round filter, not the tulip type. This hood is also a screw-fit rather than a bayonet, so it will be fiddly to fit and indeed a moderate quality plastic thread has been an issue for a number of other people. Fortunately, it wasn't dear so I'm not going to bother trying to get a refund, but you could spend your money better elsewhere.

Hood arrived on time, the box was not in a perfect condition, the item was not hurt though. The hood itself was less than expected ("poor" on my Canon EF 70-300 IS USM), but for this catchy price I overlooked it!

2.0 out of 5 stars OK but issues, 22 Jan 2010

This review is from: 58mm Crown-Shaped Hood for Canon 1100D 1200D 100D 600D 550D 700D 70D 50D 60D 70D,7D,EOS EFS 18-55mm EF 28-90mm EF 28-105mm EF 50mm Lens, clamp collar nut, 58mm filter, Nikon, Tamron, Tokina, Sigma, Fuji, Pentax and other lens with a 58mm front thread diameter. (Electronics)
Hood is OK but I had thread issues as others have reported. I also find at 18mm that the hood intrudes into the picture. Think I should have bought Canon.

The item is fine as far as it goes, but be aware that it uses the filter threads to attach to the camera. This is fiddly and can't be done quickly.

This was not such a great thing to buy, I thought it would be nice but the fact that it screws on where filters will go is not so great.
Plus it is a bit tight to get on so its a little risky, Id advise for you to get something better as it will be something you wont use.

Mr R Hallsworth (Berkshire, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: 58mm Crown-Shaped Hood for Canon 1100D 1200D 100D 600D 550D 700D 70D 50D 60D 70D,7D,EOS EFS 18-55mm EF 28-90mm EF 28-105mm EF 50mm Lens, clamp collar nut, 58mm filter, Nikon, Tamron, Tokina, Sigma, Fuji, Pentax and other lens with a 58mm front thread diameter. (Electronics)
Bought this for my Canon 500D with standard lens kit. I have the Canon UV filter attached to my lens for extra protection, but as mentioned in other reviews, with the UV filter on I cannot screw on the lens hood. Also unlike the hood from Canon, this one cannot be clipped on facing backwards for easy storage.
