LENS HOODS - spend or save BIG money

Why not just buy a real lens hood?

A brand new replacement lens hood for the Canon EF 600mm f/4 L USM IS costs a whopping £439.99. Alternatively, you can download it from this site for free! Granted, the genuine item is likely to be a bit sturdier, but that's still £439.99 you're saving!

Even modest lens hoods are pretty expensive. For example, a replacement lens hood for the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L will set you back £45.99. Even the most basic lens such as the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II will cost you £17.99 if you want to add a lens hood. While these hoods are arguably of top quality compared with those available from this site, they all serve the same purpose at the end of the day.
