Shame you have to buy this but at least it's a quality piece of kit Definitely worth paying more for original oem rather than some of the knock off versions. Fits like a glove and made of good quality plastic. This is a must for all eos-m owners. Fits the standard zoom.

Bears the Canon name and is made to fit the EF-M 18-55mm f3.5 zoom lens. Preferred this more expensive version to the non-Canon versions as some of these were reported to "not fit properly" or "suffered vignetting" from poor design. Whilst it does seem expensive for just a bit of plastic, is it worth the risk or buying "unknown brands". A safe recommendation.

Typical Canon product - high quality but a little pricey. Fits easily and extremely useful. I needed it on a recent trip to Holland and its just been to Peru with my daughter on the Inca trail. Helps as the front element of the standard EOS- M zoom is close to the front of the lens i.e. no built in 'hood' effects as you have with some prime fixed focal length lenses.
A lens hood will not only help with blocking unwanted light, but can also help protect your valuable lens from knocks. This one fits perfectly, and when not needed can be stored unobtrusively round the lens.
If you've spent a lot of money on your camera, don't take chances with third-party accessories that might not fit so well. Get the genuine article.
