Just picked up a 70-200 2.8 recently on fleabay for $900 :D Of course, with this price, it didn't come with a hood :(

Apparently, the genuine Canon hoods are around $50 a piece.. way more than what I'd like to spend for a piece of plastic in front heh. I'd rather get a cheaper aftermarket hood and save the rest of the money for a filter or something.

Any idea what some viable alternatives are?

Get a nicer hood and forget about the filter. You don't want to put something in front of an excellent piece of optics.

I agree about the filter especially if you are looking at something less than $50. Please do not ruin the IQ of this lens. As far as hoods, yes Ebay or other online vendors.

I thought this thread is about hoods and not filters...
50 bucks is still quite cheap compared to the cost of the lens :p

Megapixels and high ISO are a digital photographers heroin. Once you have a little, you just want more and more. It doesn't stop until your bank account is run dry.

Another agreement with this post! Get the best hood you can buy to protect your investment and forget the filter. Then go out and enjoy your lens.

The eBay hoods are just fine and are a fraction of the cost of a OEM hood but, will do a fine job.

If you are getting an eBay hood, I recommend that you also buy a center-pinch lens cap (they are usually available from the same eBay sellers as the hoods) for the new 70-200mm lens... A center-pinch cap is far easier to attach and remove from your lens than is a Canon OEM lens cap which is side pinch! The caps are very inexpensive. I have replaced ALL my Canon side-pinch hoods with center-pinch models and use eBay hoods for all my lenses which did not come with hoods.
