p.1 #1 · Better lens hood.


I know that the 17-40 takes a couple different lens hoods to block the sun better on 1.6x bodies.
I have the 17-35 and the hood is pointless on my 60d.
The 17-40 takes the 83J from a 17-55 which is much bigger and probably better.
Not sure if it will fit a 17-35 though.

Im wondering if there are any others that may fit it.
83dii? from 24mm
83J? from 17-55mm..
etc

Canon EW-83D is smaller and works with 17-40 on APS-C cameras
it does make the combo smaller to pack in a camera bag

Even the largest hoods are ineffective at reducing flare from a strong light source--e.g., sun--just out of frame. I've found using my cap or even hand works better than a lens hood. You can buy a shade on a gooseneck called the "Flare Buster." It mounts in the hotshoe and can be adjusted to block a streetlight or troublesome sun. I prefer just using my hat. Canon's hoods are mainly useful for keeping rain and hard objects from hitting the front element.

Yea I keep mine on a lot just in case of bumps too.
The original hood just doesnt protect it at all.
Flare on my copy seems to be very well controlled.
I like the size of the 17-55 hood, but dont know whether it will mount correctly or cause vignetting.
Might just get one off amazon for $5 and return it if it doesnt fit.

Honestly, Id rather prefer a larger hood than the original.

Just went ahead and bought an EW-83J for it off amazon for $6.
The 17-35 hood is supposed to fit the 17-40, and the 17-55 fits the 17-40.
So it has to work. I hope.

I think if the hood starts with EW-83, it would fit the 17-40.

Used to use a 50mm hood on my Nikon 35. So sometimes oem lens hoods can be small. Don't forget cheap rubber hoods. Should be able to trim them if needed

Got the 83J, had to shave some of the hoods mount off with a dremel to make it fit. Wasn't a big deal.
Works great now.
