    Default 3rd party lens hood

    i just received my 3rd party lens hood which i bought from an online store here...and it seems that the hood isn't even of the correct size. it looks to be a very cheap imitation and it doesn't even fit the lens! anyone can tell me where can i go and buy quality 3rd party lens hood in singapore? thanks!

    Prior experience with the hood or the shop? With shop yes, hood no.
    You can bring your camera down & try. Or you ask them whether they carry the hood that you wanted.

    Hmm, when I used to have EF-S lenses, my hoods were 3rd party. 1) Never had problem with mis-fitting 3rd party hoods 2) Never heard of mis-fitting 3rd party hoods. You sure you got the right hood model?
