You don't buy one for a camera. You buy one for a lens. What lens are you using?

Every lens comes with a dedicated lens hood. It is independent of your camera. But unless u're getting L lens, u'll have to purchase the hood seperately. U may want to get a 3rd party hood instead which is much cheaper.

Cheers! :)

Hi, it's called petal lens hood, there are generic screw-in ones for your kit lens.

Petal hood is not advisable for lenses with a rotating front element

hahaha agreed... it'd be funny to see the lens hood rotating with the focusing ring, if it's those screw-on type .

TS, why do you feel that you need the lens hood?

Dude, lens hoods are for lenses not camera and every lens has its own dedicated hood model.

You can get thrid party petal hoods from http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=84

For your info, I bought a 3rd party petal lens hood for my kit lens 18-55mm and when focusing at closer object at 18mm, you can see vignetting at the side of the image very clearly. So it is not advisable to get a petal hood unless you just want your camera to look nice :bsmilie: The original hood cost around $30, which is round. You can get 3rd party hoods between $10 - $15.
