Best lens hood for 28mm 2.8 IS on APS-C?

Hi, I've just bought the 28mm f2.8 IS with a 58mm thread.

Oddly, the EW-63II hood that I use on the 28mm f1.8 doesn't work, even though they both have a 58mm thread. Have Canon changed the fitting?

Anyway, is there a better hood for the f2.8 when used on an APC-C body? Thanks for any suggestions!

The EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM uses a bayonet mount lens hood that has nothing to do with the 58mm size of the filter thread. The correct lens hood for that lens is the EW-65B.  (the bayonet mount is approx 65mm)

This hood also fits the EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM. This hood is really optimized for Full Frame cameras. I don know of any hood that will fit these lenses that is optimized for APS-C cameras.

I use this same lens as my normal lens on a M6. Since the field of view is about the same as a normal lens I use a 58mm screw in lens hood designed for a normal lens. It works fine other than the extra effort involved when changing filters.

As a compromise between size, weight, speed, IQ and IS I haven't found any lens I like better.

You may want to consider a collapsible rubber hood. Not much mechanical protection though.

Using a hard lens hood definitely extends the lifespan of my filters. They rarely get scratched with the hood as protection.
