Strange, Blue Dog. You sure you didn't just hold the hood too tight together so the hood-circle stopped to be circle? That problem happened in the beginning.....

is the diameter of the ew-83j and ew-83h the same? the 83J is kinda huge
makes the 17-55 IS look even more out of place on the xt

Mine never did loosen, gave up and now use the hood from the 24-105 and only have to carry around the one.

mine loosened but i also used a bit of tri-flow at first.

Mine worked OK on the 17-40 but it was just too darn tight. I've tried all kinds of stuff to better the fit but to no avail. Once you got it fitted on you for sure didn't have to worry about the thing falling off. When I got the 24-105 and tried its hood on the 17-40, it was a no brainier.

i did the same thing until i sold my 24-105L. for sure the 24-105L hood is a better fit.

Thanks guys, so it seems that there are three ideal hoods for this.

The 17-55 (Canon EW-83J)
The 24-105L (Canon EW-83H)
and the 24 f1.4L (Canon EW-83DII)

I haven't bothered translating this webpage, but I stumbled across this (external link). I think the guy has had the same thoughts and finds the 24 f1.4L hood the best.

Thanks for all the replies so far! A wealth of information, this forum is! :)

I am using a 16-35L on my 20D. Because the field of view is not "ultra-wide" with this lens/camera combination, I substituted the EW-83DII hood (standard for the EF 24mm f/1.4L) instead of the supplied EW-83E. It is longer and narrower than the original, is more effective at blocking stray light, and is easier to handle.

I did have a problem with mounting the EW-83DII on my 16-35 lens, though. There were a couple of spots in the "threads" on the new hood that made it a VERY tight fit on the 16-35. After a close examination, I spent a couple of minutes with an Exacto knife and trimmed the offending spots a little. Now the EW-83DII fits my 16-35 perfectly.

If I ever get a 35mm film body or a "full-frame" DSLR, I will use the original hood on my 16-35 when on that body.

Aside from packing it in my bag I don't have much issue with the 17-40L hood, clearly easier to drag around then the 24-70L with hood attached. But for $50 for a second hood I think I'll deal with the 17-40L hood. Used it for some time on my Elan, so flare isn't much an issue on the APS format for me either...

I don't typically carry a lens other then a much longer tele with my 17-40L so swapping hoods with a 24-xx isn't really an option for me.

But if I were to purchase deeper hood the 17-55mm would be on my list, as I'd imagine the market for selling one of these hoods would be larger then with the other 24-xx lenses.

The hood from the 17-40 fits my 17-55 perfectly. Since I got the 17-55, the hood is the only part of the 17-40 that I use any more.

why on earth would you use a hood optimized for FF on a 1.6 crop camera?

that would be like using a FF lens on a cropped camera and you've already told us the folly of that about 120 times ;) .

You are right Ed. I made a mistake. I use the lens hood from my 17-40 EF on my 10-22 EF-S. The angle of view at 10 mm on an EF-S camera is slightly wider than 17 on a full frame camera, but the hood does not appear to cause any vignetting. The fact remains that the most useful thing about the 17-40 is its lens hood. ;)

I bought the lens hood for the 17-55 when I bought the lens. I guess that the lens hood from a 24-70 would work, if it would fit, but I don't have a 24-70.
