    Has anyone tried mounting a lens hood on a silver nose Canon 50mm 1.4? I would like to mount this hood or something like it:

    Are lens hoods generally universal in fit?

    Thanks
     
  2. Unless you have one of the original aluminium Canon BS-55 hoods you'd need to use one of the myriad of 55mm screw-in lens hoods from eBay, etc.
