lenshood and UV filter, none of these will make ur pictures look any sharper, clearer or crisper. Lenshood is used to prevent the glares from the sun/light source. UV filters are used to protect the lens from scratches/dust etc...though their primary function is to cut out the UV rays from the sun from reaching the sensor.

wont make ur pictures any more sharper ...but will protect ur lens (UV Filter) and prevent lens flares. So not a bad idea to get them, they are not expensive anyways !

Re: Lenshood and UV Filter for My New Canon 550d

a UV Filter does reduce sharpness a bit, but the difference is rarely legible. Pixel peeping will definitely show the difference,
better to go with a GOOD NC filter than a UV filter.
