    Yes, it will fit because both the filter threads are 58mm. Although, the lens hood looks a bit deep to me, it might cause vignetting. There are a few off brand replicas of the official lens hood for the 18-55mm that you could get. This one is roughly the same price and the same dimensions as the Canon lens hood.

    Thanks for the link and confirmation but I'd like a petal shaped hood instead of the linked one.

    Then, the one you originally linked will work, so go for it :)
