you can try the 'mass sales' or 'canon buy/sell' section where u can find seller selling 3rd party hoods. If you are talking about original hoods which i dun recommend (very exp, but work the same). But first of cos you will need to find out exactly what hood is 18-135mm using :)

You need to know what's the filter size of your Lens...that is the diameter...e.g. 58mm, 62 mm etc.. Look carefully, you'll find it on the lens. With that size you've known, look for a shop online that sells.
Hope this helps ;)

It's not only filter thread size. Wider lenses need to have shorter hoods otherwise will have vignetting. I think most of the shops in the mass sales section do indicate which third party hoods fit on which lenses.

Yes and TS stated 18-135, which isn't a wide angle lens so no issues on vignetting. Further more he's asking where to get from n required guidance which i've mentioned earlier. It's his choice where he gets from in the end after doing his homework.
