I think you need to grab the hood with two fingers in the two right places, depress the it goes in easily, the same way to come out. I have several original Canon, and two knockoffs, they all work fine.

You need to look up the term 'jipped' (correctly spelled gypped) before you go posting it in a public forum...

Another helpful post that is extremely relevant to the topic and issue at hand. Thanks!

I have had several knockoffs. Some fit pretty well, but some barely stayed on at all. Some fit better when reversed.

I've never had a negative experience on this forum and now on this one thread all the trolls decide to come out. What is this adding to the conversation? Did you even read the op? I have a clear question there. I am not claiming the third party should perform up to oem option.

It's a slur, even if you don't think it is. Would you start a thread saying "Someone jewed me out of money?" Just because some people don't know the definition doesn't mean it's not hateful slang that could be hurtful to some. I'm not hating, trying to teach. It's good to know these things when conversing in public.

I have a Vello and it goes on and off easily. One thing I noticed is all I need is an even, firm press of the buttons to remove. Pressing too hard makes it tough to put on or take off. I assume the Vello hood is thinner and has more flex than the Canon, so pressing the Vello too hard makes it go oval-ish.

The other poster even said that the word that I used was "incorrectly" spelled. I think its fair to argue that the word that I am using is slang for common usage in another more popular interpretation of the word. Really its a very small minority of you that would connotate that word with a slur, and its mostly just the ones that are looking to pick a fight or prove that their obscure knowledge is more powerful than my obscure knowledge. You all know what I meant by the word, and I clearly wasn't using it to offend anyone..and I go back to my main point:

What does pointing out grammatical or word usage mistakes do to further the discussion at hand?

Edit- And its not like I can change the title anyway. In hindsight I would have made it something more relevant, such as: "3rd party lens hood on 85mm F1.8". But to be fair, I didn't think I would be interwebz-assaulted for using a word incorrectly. Should have known better but like I said, I've had nothing but positive experiences on this forum until now.

Here's a couple quick shots of the mount-ring. There's no damage or anything wrong with it that I can see.

Just ordered the canon hood btw. Somehow amongst the rabble of semantics it seems that the consensus is that I probably got a dud third party hood, so hopefully the canon hood works without problems.

I use a generic replacement hood for my 85L II which IIRC mounts similarly to the way the 85 f/1.8 hood mounts (with two clips). At first it was very stubborn and resistant to locking in place effectively (would often not lock completely), but now it locks properly almost as easy as the original hood.

The design is not great to begin with - I personally don't like the fit of the Canon hoods myself.

I got a 3rd party one and it was not easy to put on but I think I figured out the "technique" to get it on so it stays on.

Yea I mean i figured I would see if the fit was any better with the OEM. If it was, I'd keep it up and chalk it up to a third party failure. If it wasn't, Id sent it back and curse the canon gods for the design of the hood mount.

I got a third party one, don't remember the brand. It has four clips to catch onto the ring. One of the clips broke off almost right away, and the other three are not enough to hold the hood tight. Maybe I should spend money and buy a Canon, even though all my other Canon lenses have cheap hoods that work great.

On a "related" subject: What is amazing is that some people are attacking you without even knowing if English is your mother tongue or the second language!
