Hood designation for Canon 50mmf/1.8 Mk1

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Simon Gardner, May 9, 2004.

  1. I've been wading through websites and am getting ambiguous answers.

    Can anyone tell me the correct Canon lens hood for the older [original and
    now discontinued] EF Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens - often known as the Mark One -
    to distinguish it from the Mk II, the current f/1.8 model?

    It appears that
    the 50mmf/1.8 Mk2 takes the ES62AD
    the 50mmf/1.4 takes the ES71/2

    So what about the 50mmf/1.8 Mk1?

    If its "proper" lens hood is no longer available, what's the best current
    alternative?
