I always use them!
It's as important than the lens itself.

My lenses feel naked without their hoods...seriously though, I keep them on all the time, if for nothing else, they provide some protection to the front element.

Does anyone else feel like they've used hooded lenses for so long that ones without a hood look a bit wierd? I saw a 70-200 2.8 unhooded and wasn't quite used to the look.

Agreed - naked and short without it. ;)

If you got em, use em. It doesn't degrade the image... chances are, it will make it better.

Sorry there was a lag between when I was responding and when it posted. It sucked that his 70-200 took a spill

That was a 300 2.8, not a 70-200. Yes it sucked and it would suck either with either lens.

Always. 16-35mm through 400mm. 24 and 90mm TS are the only lenses that the hood is not on whether shooting or storing.

i used to hate them and never used them. however, i got sick of messing with lens caps during weddings so i now have the hoods on all the time so i can just pop my lenses in and out of the back without lens caps. since my lenses are mostly small it works. if i was still using the 24-70 & 70-200 it wouldn't. those are just too big. but since they all fit the right way on all of my lenses in the think tank UD50, i keep them on all the time. i don't even have to think about them.

Every time a lens goes on my camera a hood goes on the lens.
