I have ordered a 85mm f/1.8, any suggestions for a hood or filter for my 5D3?

It seems like the Canon ET-65 III doesn't flip like my other lens hoods to save space in my bag.

I suppose, I may as well ask what everyone uses on their 85mm to prevent scratches.

Thanks!

The hood is reversible on the 85 1.8 according to the reviews on Adorama and B&H.

Ah, gadzooks. I wish they would mention that in the details for the hood rather the reviews, haha.

Thanks!

The hood is reversable. It's just not the bayonet mount hood that most other lenses have so it doesn't always seem to want to snap in place when it's reversed for me...sometimes it takes a couple of tries.

Thanks! I ordered it and I'll play with it when it all shows up. I decided on this B+W filter- http://www.amazon.com …f=pe_309540_267​25410_item (external link)

It's such a great lens for the money. I have that hood and it reverses for me no problem. I actually like it better then my 35L hood.

Glad to hear it! I just couldn't justify the 85L for ~2k. In that range, I'd prefer a 70-200 f/2.8L, at some point.

My Opteka hood snaps in fine both ways, almost always on the first try. It can hold up my 85 without it falling off if I'm just holding it by the hood.

Yes, I wish it was a bayonet mount. Let alone reversed, it sometimes doesn't like to snap on the first try for me in the usable position.


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

Me too, I prefer bayonets. I found a bayonet for my 50 f1.8 on ebay. I wasn't able to find one for the 85. Oh well.

The hood-holding ring on the 85/1.8 is continuous, hence a bayonet attachment isn't possible.

I wonder what's the reason for this design, which calls for a more complicated mechanism in the hood and doesn't work as well as the common bayonet solution.

It worked well on my 50 1.8. It came with an adaptor ring like a filter and it made the hood like a bayonet. I was pretty impressed with it for such an inexpensive lens.
