If you plan on shooting paintball with that lens get on ebay and buy a cheap china knockoff hood. I already had one crack from taking a shot in the side from pretty close. I was out $10 for another cheap one instead of the $50 canon would of charged. Plus paint would easily stain the nice felt on the inside of the factory hood.
Yeah that's what some of people I talked to said. I think I'm going to stick with using a filter for now, my field is pretty dusty too.
I'll was gonna use the hood but I'll have to look into a cheap one.
