I always use the hood for mainly protection, the other use for a lens hood is to prevent light from hitting the front lens element from the sides - reducing contrast and creating flare. Pictures taken with a lens hood installed can have richer colors and deeper saturation.

Indoors, no.
Outdoors, yes.

Cheers.

Why are you bumping 2 year old threads? It's not like you have anything great to contribute.

I always use it on my 85L, it's simply too end-heavy and a helluva expensive piece of glass not to use the hood.

However, today I got me a 135L and while it's probably necessary to keep stray light out, it's definitely a bit overkill for protection... it nearly doubles the length of the lens and makes it impossible to stow in my bag with the hood on.

Use the hood from a 35L, significantly smaller.
