I have a Canon P (Leica screwmount clone) and I was ogling this lens once, back in 1975. At that time I'm almost certain that the lens I was contemplating buying had a Canon shade with it. Since I didn't buy it, I didn't get a chance to develop any film to see if the shade occluded slightly, but it was shaped wierdly enough. On a 19mm lens a shade really doesn't buy you much, though. There aren't many angles from which the sun can hit the lens but from which the light does not hit the film. It's about 10 to 15 degrees.
