    lens hood for APS-C

    Hi,
    I write again my question I posted in the "lens hood" thread (in the general photography discussion section) because I think this section is more appropriated for the subject:

    I've an ef 17-40mm f/4 used on a crop camera (50D), but obviously the lens hood (EW-83E) is designed for FF camera.
    So, sometimes I found useful to have a "bigger" petal shape hood in order to better preserve from flare.
    the lens hood serie EW-83 is designed for 77mm diam. lenses as my 17-40mm.
    Does someone of you use another EW-83x hood on a 17-40? I mean, an EW-83J (designed for 17-55 f/2.8) fits on 17-40mm?
    and what about a EW-83H or EW-83D?
    Have ever tried to fit these on a 17-40mm?
    many thanks in advance for the help

    Nicola,

    I can't vouch for the accuracy of this article that I found using Google...

    BTW: The eBay Chinese knock-off lens hoods do quite a good job for a fraction of the price of an OEM Canon hood. They don't have the Canon flocking but, that has never caused me any problems with my 17-55mm lens...

    Richard,
    this is exactly what I was looking for! thank you very much for your help!
    You are right, I have bought a very cheap lens hood for one of my zoom on ebay and it works well, so I'm going to order an EW-83J on ebay and even if it will not fit I will not fall in financial crisis...
    many thanks again
    best regards
    Nicola
