i bought a generic 5 dollar lens hood from ebay for my 28-135. it works. it is a screw on. it doesn't swivel or rotate once it snaps on. but i tested at widest, and narrowest and it works. compared to my name brand lens hood, the ebay hood sucks but it works! so just buy the ebay lens hood, you won't regret it.
I have ALWAYS used a generic, round, screw-in lens-hood with any lens which will accept such a hood (28-135mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm f/4L IS).
One great advantage of a round screw-in lens-hood is that you can screw a CPL onto your lens and then screw the lens hood into the front threads of the CPL. Then when you need to turn the CPL to adjust for light direction, you just turn the hood.
I use 1.6x cameras and the generic, round, screw-in hoods do not vignette at any focal length. They shade the lens as well as an OEM style filter but are more compact. The OEM filter was designed for full-frame cameras and is, IMO, overkill on a 1.6x body.
The round, screw-in hood also physically protects the lens as well, if not better, than the OEM hood. I fell to the concrete and my 70-200mm lens hit hood first propelled by my 200 pound body. The hood was toast but the lens was undamaged. The five bucks or so that I spent for that lens hood was one of the best purchases I ever made.
By the way, if you read the Canon instruction manual for the 28-135mm lens, it says that you cannot use a CPL and a Canon lens hood. You actually can but need skinny Grinch-like fingers to twist the filter inside the OEM hood.
