    I use a lens hood all of the time, except when I don't!

    it is a matter of choice really. Indoors with a macro set up, they can be a neusance, but out of doors, they can be essential and they do offer some protection.

    On the whole, I am in favour of using them.

    I do nearly all the time and I have just lost the one from my standard zoom. The cost of a replacement is OUTRAGEOUS! It will have to be ebay and Hong Kong I'm afraid.

    Other than close-up macro, I cannot remember when I last took a shot without one. I store lenses with the hood reversed and in place. Taking off the lens cap and turning around the hood is done at reflex level . . . . :rolleyes:
