4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but with a minor drawback, 1 Feb 2012
This review is from: 58mm Flower Petal Camera Lens Hood for Canon EOS EFS 18-55mm EFS 55-250mm EF 70-300mm EF 50mm Lens (Camera)
As most people know, the 18-55mm kit lens has a rotating front element. If you just screw on the lens hood and hope for the best, you -will- get vignetting and you -will- be disappointed.

I got this hood in a bundle with some other stuff. I was going to get a round lens hood later, but this is fine for me. My advice would be to only partially tighten the lens hood, focus and then adjust the hood so that it is correctly in line. I did this right from the outset anyway and have never had a problem with it. Even on the wide angle setting, if the hood is adjusted so that it is close enough to where it should be, there is no vignetting.

The hood, if used this way is fantastic and far better than the shallow circular one for the lens. It may seem like a bit of a hassle, but having done this for some time now, I don't find it to be a problem. It's also really sturdy and I don't feel like I have to keep replacing the lens cap after every shot, allowing for me to take pictures more quickly and miss less.
