Hood for 17-55 f2.8 IS when 83ej not available
Jul 15, 2008

I have a 17-55 f2.8 IS lens. I ordered the hood EW-83J but it is out of stock and on back order.

In the meantime, wondering what other hoods people have used. I have tried it with the hood for the 17-40 f4/10-22 the 83E which works although does not shade the lens as much as I would like. I have the 83H for the 24-105 lens and have also tried it. Both hoods seem ok when I do shots at 17mm.
Has anyone tried these hoods with the lens?

I have not used the lens much, I got it because I found the 24-105 was not wide enough sometimes, especially for groups of people and interiors and also due to larger opening as I had found the 24-105 had trouble focusing in low light compared to the 24-70 f2.8.
Thanks for your comments.
