p.1 #1 · Hood for a 17-35mm L


Subject says it all, really. I could do with a hood for the afore mentioned lens, but the EW-83CII is hard to come by these days (the official hood).
Does anybody know if the related EW-83E or similar could do the job?

Thanks in advance!

You can't find a replacement from HK or China on eBay? One of my favorite brands is "uWinka", but there are plenty of others at reasonable prices. I'm sure someone makes a replacement for your lens.

Yup, says it all, really. You may be interested in a lens not made by Canon or maybe a current Canon lens..

There is a 16-35 f/2.8 L Mark II and a 17-40 f/4 L.

Are you talking about one of the old long-discontinued L lenses? (20-35 L or 17-35 f/2.8 L?)

Yep, the 17-35mm f/2.8 L. Long discontinued, but still a damn good UW. If I could be sure that the hoods designed for either the 16-35L II or the 17-40L would work well, I'd grab one for sure.

Thanks for the brand suggestion. I've bought cheap third-party hoods before and been disappointed, but perhaps the uWinka hoods are worth a go.

This page

says use this hood:

EW-83C for the EF 17-35mm f2.8 L USM.

I have used this brand for other lenses and find it very good. A lot cheaper than original canon.

PDoc, you could try some out here:

http://www.lenshoods.co.uk/canon.php

and decide if you want to buy a substitute hood. Ex. try the 16-35 L pattern and see if it vignettes on your lens. If it does not, then you might like to buy the EW-83E hood (officially for the 16-35 L) and see if it vignettes on the old lens

Note: I think the recommended 83C is different from the 83C II.
