It is a copy of the Canon and it is custom made for your lens, so yes it will work.

There are two points is one difference.

1) it screws on to the filter thread. If by any chance you drop the lens it may damage the thread possibly more that the canon bayonette type would (unlikely...)

2) the Canon hood has an opening at the base so that you can rotate a PL filter with the hood in use.

With the one in your link you would need to rotate the hood.

Do you plan to buy a PL ? If not , it does not matter.

I had another look at the accessory one, it looks like it does have a bayonet fitting...

Actually, no, the first generation 100-400 lens hood did not have a hole in it to adjust a filter.
