The Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 sits in between the cheap-o f/1.8 mkII version and the ridiculously expensive f/1.2 L-series version. There was a crazy f/1.0L lens at one time but this seems to have been discontinued (presumably as nobody could afford it). It is a "standard" ... Read review

A dedicated lens hood such as this, is specifically designed to match a lens or a number of lenses. Please take care when purchasing a lens hood for your lens, as some manufacturers have produced multiple versions of lenses with subtle changes to the lens model numbers and these lenses sometimes use different lens hoods.

If in doubt please check the manufacturers website to ensure you are purchasing the correct lens hood.
