    Congrats.

    I just use a cheap rubber hood (like THIS) for my 50mm (although I haven't used my 50mm in quite a while)

    Or you could get the Canon plastic hood, which requires an adaptor because it's a bayonet mount hood and the lens only has threads. HERE

    My 50mm is broken :( I can only shoot at f/1.8.

    Tip: Don't let it fall off your bed onto a hard floor.

    Ditto, but not for the same reason.

    I use that lens in lower light situations. The only real good that a lens hood does (well besides the protection thingie), is prevent lens flare from shooting into the sun. Since I never use that lens in bright light situations, a hood is useless to me.

    Now, I *do* use a quality UV filter on ALL my lenses for protection.
