Hello,

To the folks with the EF-S 10 22 UWA lens; how essential is the hood? The lens is quite wide, and I was wondering if the hood is really effective or not. I have hoods on other lenses and they protrude out a good bit compared to the 10-22 hood, which seems to be very small. Or is there a third party option for flare protection?

Thanks!

Because of it's width you really can't have a hood that extends much more than the exisiting hood without cutting off the lens at it's widest. With that said, it is a HUGE hood, in width and makes packing the lens a bit of a pain.

I bought a third party hood which fits perfectly but really haven't used the lens in situations where flare would be a problem.

The hood does look cool on the lens, though ;)


Bohdan - I may be, and probably am, completely wrong.

If you've got room in the bag then it's good, but it's a real pain trying to pack. same with the 17-40 and 16-35..

I've only used mine a couple of times - the bl**dy thing is like a dinner plate and is a PITA to fit in the bag, it only gives minimal protection from damage or flare etc. so I'm just careful when I use it - usually on a tripod and not amongst a large crowd and brick walls :-)

I use my hand with my 10-22!

Couldn't see that a hood on an ultra-wide is going to reduce much of anything, except the Yen in my wallet!!!!

I think it's vital. The lens is so wide that flaring needs to be avoided.

I don't have an UWA, but I love using my hood on my 17-40. It's tiny but its protected my lens numerous times. I don't feel safe without a hood on anymore. In terms of flaring, it probably won't do much. I mean you could easily block the flare with your hands. I do that from time to time.

Believe it or not, a folding rubber lens hood will not vignette using a 17-40L lens on a 1.6x camera.

You can also effectively protect the lens from flare using something like a "Flare Buster"

...but because it is so wide the hood has to be very shallow (for the 10mm end) and is therefore not giving much protection at all.

As already mentioned, this lens is extremely resistant to flare anyway, I don't give it a second thought when shooting into the sun. It has to be one of the best I've ever used in these circumstances.

I finally bought the hood after some time without it and I notice it helping with certain situations and focal lengths. I did some shots this summer in Central Park and with the strong mid-day sun, it eliminated some flaring I was getting at the wide end.

As usual, the price is a bit high for this accessory. It really is a PITA to pack and especially so if I'm traveling light. My smallest bag just barely accommodates its extreme width and so bulges a little bit but it's fine if I take one of my other bags. I usually keep my hoods in spare pouches but this one is so wide I just leave it in its original plastic bag and that seems to protect it just fine.
