|The Precision Design ES-62 Lens Hood for the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens is primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition since the end of the lens is extended you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact. Dedicated lens hoods such as the Precision Design ES-62 are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.|
Good quality and they ship it right away in front of my door... I can't wait to purchase again!

It's a fine lens hood for the price you pay. I leave mine on the lens and i've had no problems. I wish you could attach the lens cap a little more securely it tends to pop out now and then but other than that it's doing it's job.
