Folks, I was hoping to get a wee bit of help. I don't have any experience with kits lenses. My father received a T1i for Christmas from his wife, and I would like to get him hoods for the 2 lenses that came with the kit. I just need someone to confirm that I am ordering the correct 2 hoods.

These are Canon hood #'s.

Canon 18-55 IS Hood number EW-60C

Canon 55-250 IS Hood Number ET-60

Can someone please confirm that those are the correct hoods? Thanks.

Those are correct. I would however argue that the 18-55 hood is a waste of time. It is barely anything and won't protect the lens, and I can't see it being very effective in cutting flare. The 55-250 one is worthwhile though.

Thanks for you input, much appreciated.

It still chaps my butt that Canon doesn't include the hoods with the non-L lenses. .....

Plenty of copies out there for these popular hoods that cost a fraction of the cost... just no "Canon" on the side of them.

Why?

If they did, the price would go up, you wouldn't get them included at the current price.

As it stands, you can order a lens and a hood, if that is what you want. The price is probably not going to be much different to what Canon would charge for the lens with 'free' hood, if it was included automatically.

However, if you are on a budget (as many buyers of the non-'L' lenses are) you might prefer to use a third party hood at a fraction of the price, a hood off another lens or no hood at all. All options which will be cheaper than buying the lens with hood included automatically.

I see the hood as optional extra being preferable for many people, those who don't want to pay for something they don't want.

Me. I always order the hood with the lens when I buy one that doesn't have it included. So, for me, I wouldn't have an issue with them being included. However, I don't have an issue with having to buy them as an extra, either.

The current way simply provides an element of choice for buyers, I'm all for giving buyers the choice.

Canon doesn't include a piece of plastic that costs them a few cents to make, instead they charge over $20 for something that should be included and free.

Bingo! ANd that is what chaps my a$$. Hoods cannot be more than what? A dollar or two produce at the very most.

Even for those on a budget, an extra 5 dollars to get a hood with the lens is nothing.

For these hoods I would go on eBay and order the knock-off's from China. They will be MUCH cheaper, and just as effective.

While I'm sure Canon makes a healthy profit on accessories generally, I also appreciate the higher quality materials, fit and finish of the genuine hoods against the cheaper knock-offs, some of which do not even include the flocking on the inside.

I agree Madweasel. I ordered a knock off ONCE, it sucked. More flimsy, no flocking, and when fully locked on the lens, its not quite in the correct position. (petal hood)

I have knock off hoods ordered from ebay and they are no different than the ones Cannon charges 4X as much for.

THe one I bought left a bad taste in my mouth. I usually stick with Canon brand for all the accessories, unless someone has a better product.
