I didn't and wouldn't waste the money. Same for the kit lens.

I'd either buy a cheap hood or screw in a filter mount just to save the thread if the lens gets bashed against something hard.

I have a rubber hood for the kit lens, and a cheap metal hood for the 50.

Guess I'm the sucker, I actually got one from Adorama $18 I think when I got the nifty. It actually has an adapter that screws in and then the hood snaps on to that. Probably wouldn't have gotten on for it but this is my primary lens (along with a kit lens and old tamron 100-300) for a few months until I can get the cash saved up for a 70-200.

I own the original Canon 50/1.8 mk 1 (1987) and the ES 65 ii hood is definately worth owning. Picked up my copy of the lens used for under $150 worth every penny for the build if you ask me.

The hood actually will "work" on the kit lens too. It will more or less snap onto the kit lens and stay in place unless bumped with a decent amount of force.

If I had that lens I owuld have the hood but I don't know as I don't have that lens.

I aim to get hoods for all my lenses when I get them. No point at the moment, my lenses are worth peanuts.

Ditto! Don't remember what I paid for my copy of the MK1, but I've had it for 4 camera bodies! Not my most used lens, but I can't see any reason to sell it off. When I need it, I need it!

I use the same hood on it as the 85 f/1.8, the ET-65III. Don't know if this applies to the MK2 version of the 50 though... It looks funny with this hood, as the hood is longer than the lens body. No problems with vignetting on either of the film bodies I've used it with, and certainly not the crop body digitals.
