knock off EW-60E hood?
« on: September 18, 2013, 10:49:06 AM »
Anybody aware of a 3rd party hood for the 11-22 yet? The Canon one is high and hard to find. For Grins & Giggles - somebody on e-bay is trying to get $86 for it - WOW!

I saw the same auction listing. What a joke, huh?
I ordered one out of Japan a few weeks ago but the seller couldn't deliver on it and refunded me.
So I'm in the same boat as you ... still looking for one.  I ordered the lens from Henrys in Canada and got great service there, but getting a hood from them appears to be a non-starter for me: It would be a special order item, $50 shipped to the USA.
Eventually, there are bound to be some third-party ones on the auction sites for $5-6 shipped. Guess I'll wait for that.

wonder if anyone will be it.  I have seen $500 amazon gift cards sold for $515.  Why would any one pay an extra $15 in order to buy it on amazon?  Laundering drug money????

When the U.S. $100 bill changed designs a long time ago, some people were paying extra to get their hands on it. I was a witness to someone giving up an extra $20 for this one.
For more e-bay chuckles, check on Friday when the new iPhone hits the stores. I imagine there will be a few that, just like the Canon hood, will say "best price" in the item description. Sure ... best price -- for the seller, that is.

Looks like the third-party manufacturers have pulled through. Their versions of the hood have begun to appear on eBay.
Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/171135970172?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649
I've ordered one and it looks like there's 8 of them left at $13 shipped.
Hope this works out well. I've been after one of these for a while. They will probably come down to half this price in a few months, but still...

Thanks! I just pulled the trigger - $13 is fair enough for this. I suspect its pretty useless for mitigating flare, but I like these little hoods for a small measure of physical protection. Will live on the lens.

I probably will have few occasions to remove the hood as well. I tend to store the EF-M lenses with hoods on, front caps off in a Domke F5XB. It makes getting them out and ready to use just a bit quicker and keeps the front element safe from rubbing the bottom of the Domke.

I've bought a couple 3rd party OEM-replacement bayonet hoods off Amazon with good results.

you can get the screw-on types too even cheaper.  in those cases be sure to get appropriate type though if the front element rotates (ie. non-tulip style) during zoom.

bayonet style, one for a 18-135 EF-S (tulip) and one for the 70-300 EF (non L, straight cylinder since it rotates) were both a perfect fit

The JJC hood arrived - it's fine. I didn't realize it, but thats the brand I had on the 18-55 as well - two hoods for less than one by Canon.

Mine arrived today, from the same source but through ebay UK.  Highly recommended.

So would you guys get the official one or get a third party one?

There's one for sale on amazon right now which looks like a great deal. Just want to make sure the official one is worth the extra money.
