View Full Version : Lens Hood Searching
after getting a wonderfull Canon 35mm f 1:2 lens, I would like to know, if someone knows where I can get a lenshood . Is there an original one available?
If not, is there a reasonable alternative?
Thanks for your answers?
There was no lens shade made by Canon for the RF 35/2.
Some people in the forum took notice about good experience with 3rd party lens hoods from Cameraquest.
If you take color slides and frame them, then you may use the 50/1.5 hood, but this is a rare one (read: expensive). If you use the full format, this hood is too tight.
From my experience the 35/2 is quite resistant to ghost pictures coming from light sources outside the viewing angle where a hood may help. The 35/2 is, on the other hand, sensible to flare with strong backlite as most older 35mm rangefinder lenses of similar (Gaussian) design and even the 4th gen. Summicron. In this case a hood is of no help.
