I need a second ET-87 (70-200 2.8 IS-II) for a project and I was wondering which ones you guys were having luck with? Ive seen them $10-40. I've heard some fit better than others..

Some Canon ones (depending on model) fit better than the aftermarket, but not enough to justify the ridiculous cost.

I pick up cheapest one I can find on eBay. Have always worked well. I think most I have spent is $4 shipped.

Looks great and offers peace of mind on hot,sunny days (when all the black hoods are getting really hot).

If your project isn't that serious or you just need a quicky hood you could make one out of cardboard.

Find the one on EBay that rings your bell, I've used various ones and no problems with any of them.

Look into Vello, which is B&H Photo's brand. I have a Vello hood for a 70-300 IS USM and it works great.

I use the cheap Ebay/Amazon ones. I can't get my head around spending $75.00 for a piece of plastic that cost Canon 50 cents to produce.

Only differnce I see is that the Canon ones are flat black on the inside surface where most of the cheap after market ones are not. I suppose you could mask and spray a cheap one with flat black as long as the paint you use is compatible with the plastic.

Not sure if reflections are an issue with a non flat black surface, I have not had any I can tell so far.

As far as the fit on my Canon EF-S 15 to 85, the after market one fits perfectly.

I bought the cheapest one i could find for my 85 and it would not stay on. I went with the Opteka. They are all NOT the same.

They are freakin lens hoods! It shouldn't take too much work to either buy one from a vendor you know and trust, or ebay a few to try. You spent over two grand on a lens, so who gives a care if you had to toss a couple of five dollar hoods! Or just get the REAL Canon hood and be happy with it.
