Hi guys,
Does anyone own or know of a Petal Hood for the 85mm 1.8? I think I want to get a lens hood for it, but I don't really like the round hoods. I had a petal hood on my Sigma 30mm 1.4 before and it made my lens look badass!! It's all about looking badass, you know. :cool:

Round hood + Dremel tool = any shaped hood you want.

That won't work very well becaue the ET-65 hood on the EF 85mm 1.8 just clips on and is able to rotate on the end of the lens. It will look silly when the "petals" are not lined up properly.

You could get a 58mm screw in type petal hood on ebay or elsewhere pretty cheap.

Some of them even allow you to reverse the hood for storage.

There's a reason why they're round and not pedal, but if it's just for aesthetic do it. Wrap it in vinyl while you're at it! they have all sorts of fun patterns.

The petals will never be "lined up properly", so to speak, because there isn't anything to line them up to. Petal hoods are used for zoom lenses due to the change in angle of view that occurs when you zoom out. Round hoods are the superior type but will create vignetting when attached to a zoom lens.

What this means for you is that you can use a dremel tool to create four way symmetry.

Also, the canon 85mm hood can be mounted backwards as well.

There doesn't seem to be much consistency with Canon lens hod design. Many Canon primes have petal hoods while many of their zooms have straight round hoods.

I'm pretty sure msowsun knows that. I believe he was talking about some of the screw-in hoods that you can buy can be mount backwards, since most screw-ins do not mount backwards.


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

I've always thought that petal type hoods were mostly used on wide angle lenses for vignetting reasons, i.e. 35mm or wider. Sigma has a petal hood on their 85mm 1.4, but in terms of Canon lenses that seems to be the rule.

From Cambridge in Colour (external link):

Petal lens hoods often protect better than non-petal (round) types. This is because petal-style hoods take into account the aspect ratio of the camera's film or digital sensor, and so the angle of view is greater in one direction than the other.

Seeing that the 85/1.8 doesn't have a bayonet mount for the hood a d this allows the hood to spin, anything with a Petal design would have to be screwed into the filter threads. Sorry but that's a pain in the arse. PITA trumps Badass.

I got the round Vello hood at B&H. It seems to be equal to the Canon OEM hood, from what I can discern.

That's the one I'm looking it, but want a petal hood instead.
