Canon EW-73B lens hood,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EW-73B Lens Hood for EF-S17-85mm IS USM Lens (Accessory)
I had been putting off buying this lens hood for my Canon 40D (what a fantastic camera!)because I thought that £23 was a shocking price for a plastic moulding but seeing it on Amazon for about £18 decided me to go ahead. Wasn't sure whether it would fit ok because I have a non-Canon UV/lens protection filter fitted but need not have worried. The lens hood is, in effect, a bayonet cap fitting on the EF-S17-85 USM lens i.e. a quarter turn and it locks neatly in place, completely avoiding the filter. It is, of course, beautifully finished as you would expect from Canon and seems to be quite robust. Also manages to tuck away quite neatly into my small camera bag.
