I'm looking for a hood for my Canon 85/1.8, I currently have the ET-65 III but I prefer screwing on the hoods. Anyone know if the ES-71 II for 50/1.4 fits on the 85/1.8?

I'm afraid that lens design doesn't allow for twist-on (bajonet mount) hoods, only clip-on.

I dislike that too.

Well, that sucks... I was hoping for a better solution. I'm not sure I'm going to use a hood on this one, feels like it's going to fall off all the time. Thanks for the help :)

I don't like the feel of it either, but in my experience it does it's job as advertised.

It is sometimes a pain to clip the hood on backwards.....

I use a metal one from ebay that screws into the filter threads. Someone mentioned this is worse since if it gets bumped it'll transfer the shock internally. So I took it off. It was a well made hood though.

I have trouble getting the hood on the lens, when it is on it doesn't seem to sit tight enough. I may get used to it over time, will see. The lens it self is quite nice for its price.
