Thread: will my 85 F1.8 hood be usable on a 55-250 IS?

    Default will my 85 F1.8 hood be usable on a 55-250 IS?

    Hi guys, anyone knows if the hoods can be used interchangably assuming that their filter sizes are similar?

    Thanks
    Looking for Canon 100mm F2 USM :)

    No. They do not attach to your filter thread.

    Just in case you have purchased a HOYA rubber hood that attaches to your filter thread then you might get vignetting on the 55-250 in the lower focal ranges. Take your hood and try out in the shops.
    Hoya rubber hood, mounted on filter thread:
