Which Lens Hoods fit RF 2/85 and 1.8/50 lenses?

So far as I see Canon has no lens hoods for the RF 2/85 and 1.8/50 lenses in stock.

As I bought these lenses I fitted two screw mount hoods. They do there job but are not very handy.

Which lens hoods fit RF 2/85 and 1.8/50 lenses? Some dealer say the EF 1.8/50 hood fits the RF 1.8/50, too.

I found some 3rd party hoods for the RF 2/85 on ebay but I'm not convinced that they really fit this lens.

The info is available on the product pages for these lenses under the Supplies & Accessories section.

 

For the RF 85mm f/2, you'd want Lens Hood ET-77.  See This Link.

 

For the RF 50mm f/1.8, you'd want Lens Hood ES-65B.  See This Link.

I would not buy any of these.

Lens Hood ES-65B is far to big for the RF 50mm f/1.8

Meanwhile I got the ES-65B, but this hood is far to big for the RF 50mm f/1.8. It is a very good transport security but not handy. It is longer as the lens and it is a pain in the ass to reverse the hood. It occupies also to much space in the bag.

My screw-on hood is much more handy.

I agree whith you. I have 2 JCC hood for RF lenses - the brand name may be different in other contries. They fit and work very well and have a press button.

But a lot other 3rd party hood on ebay are junk. My wife bought two for her EF-S lenses, one works since 2 years, the other one jammed after some months and is useless after 15 months.
