40mm f2.8 STM - Lens Hood?
« on: June 25, 2012, 03:55:23 AM »
Hi,

There is mention of a ES-52 hood for the new 40mm pancake - nothing fits that description here in the UK.

Would a third party (or even a Canon) 52mm filter thread hood fit the bill?

Cheers

The ES-52 is a bayonet-mount type lens hood specifically made to fit the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens.

Not so sure about that, or at least, it's not a compllete description. I don't see any place on the lens for a bayonet type hood to mount, and I suspect it's a screw-in hood, or it comes with a screw-in hood adapter like the 50/1.8 II.

The instruction of the EF 40mm says:

"...attach it to the filter mounting thread ... on the front of the lens, or to the thread ... on the front of the filter that is already fitted to the lens..."

Thanks all.

I may wait until the ES-52 gets itself over here properly.

Maybe I should just indulge it's tiny proportions a little longer!

Just picked up my shorty forty here in shanghai. It comes with the tiny lens case LP811 and the ridiculously cute ES-52 lens hood, which as Neuro points out, is a screw-in hood. It's so small that I first didn't realize it is actually a hood. Screwed in, it only protrudes 8mm!

Did it 'come' with it or were those items separate purchases? Because mine comes tomorrow and I bet you it is only a lens in a styro and cardboard box.

you can use the SAME hood as the 50mm f1.8.. the screw on hood..
it even fits onto a filter that has threads..
I tried using it on my B+W filter and my old 50mm f1.8 hood and they both fit perfectly…
HOWEVER, by doing that..the pancake, isn't a pancake anymore..

In many Asian countries, Canon sells all lenses - even the non-L ones - with the hood and pouch included.

;D. I got mine yesterday. Put it on the 5D3. Man, it was light. Very nice image coming out of it.

Currently no plan to add a protective filter or hood. I was actually wondering if the large filter surface would add more reflection or glare. Also, the combo of a B+W filter and the hood would cost about $70 (35% of the lens). The lens is so small that it could be easily cleaned with a lenspen.

Does that hood actually offer any protection against flare, or is it more for protection against bumps?  It is so narrow, consistent with the pancake concept, but I wonder whether it is functional?

By the way, definitely does not come with the hood or the case in the USA.

I usually try to use a lens hood for bump protection whenever shooting outside of a studio setting, but that thing is so dinky that I don't think I would bother.  The 50 1.8 hood might be an option for more extreme situations (mosh pits and the like).  Can the lens cap be used while the hood is attached? I assume the hood can not be reversed like the bayonet types can be?
