I've been calling alot of shops to check on the availability of original Canon ES-71-II Lens Hood but it seems like none of the shops has it. I was informed that they can order a 3rd party lens-hood for me and it may take 3-4 days. Also, it seems like 3rd party lenshood is almost 50% cheaper than the original.
I am not familiar with 3rd party lens hood so the question is, will there be any differences from the original (eg: quality, dimension, effects of pics, etc etc...) ??!!!
