The Canon EW-83J Lens Hood, is primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens.
The 'petal' shape of the Lens Hood maximises the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. This dedicated lens hood is designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

Good hood for the lens
By Simon DancefloorLandmine

Comments about Canon EW83J Lens Hood for EF17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM:
If you've splashed out on the 17-55mm lens, I'd recommend getting this hood. Because it does both of things that a lens hood should - it cuts down on glare in your shots, and it protects the front optic of your lens. And, given the vast fingerprint-attracting 77mm front glass of the 17-55mm, that's a valuable thing to do.It's a better quality hood than some, lined with a light-absorbent black velvet style finish rather than the simple ridged plastic surface of some, and it soaks up reflections and glare very well. Being designed for the specific lens, there's no vignetting.The only downside is the size - fitting on the already wide lens, this makes the lens even wider, and may make it hard to fit into some camera bags.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Hertfordshire, UK
I bought this because for use on a Canon 17-40mm L series lens. The feedback from other photography sites was that this was a better hood for the lens than the one that comes as standard with the lens when using the lens on a crop sensor camera. As I use the lens on a Canon 7D this is a better choice of hood. Price isn't great, but don't blame Warehouse Express - Canon don't exactly price any of their hoods particularly well. Overall I'm glad I bought it.
