Canon 10-22mm lens hood and filter question

I'm thinking of picking up the Canon 10-22mm lens. I usually buy lens hood and UV filters for protecion (not here for a debate on the merits).

I have read of people skipping the lens hood for the 10-22 because it doesn't do much and with is small size it offers very minimal protection (mostly just protects from frontal bumps). I'm not opposed to spending money to buy an OEM one. My question is whether the Canon OEM lens hood vignets and whether it's worth it for protection purposes in this case.

My other question is whether I need to buy thin filters for this. I usually use regular B+W MRC filters. Do I need to get thin ones for this lens?

I'm mostly here to see the responses to this question. I have the 10-22 and don't have a hood (flare is an issue w/ultra-wide angle lenses). I haven't bought the hood b/c I dont believe it would help very much--but I dont have one to test it out lol

10-22 use the same 17-40L hood, which I never use a single time.

I usual use my hand to block the sun if needed.

Hoods for all wide angle lenses have limited light blocking ability because of the wide FOV. It's the nature of the beast. It does however provide some protection. As to filters, I gave up on screw in filters because of vignetting and have gone to 4x4 filters and a filter holder. No protection but it does what it's suppose to do better.

Use a slim filter to reduce flare. I used the B+W cp Slim filter on this lens.

I had thought that a filter will always increase flare as it gives the lens yet another surface to reflect off of. A slim filter will reduce vignetting though.

I use the hood just about every time I pull that lens out of the bag; it does not vignette at all. Also, normal sized filters work fine on there, as well. No need for 'slim' built ones.

Yes you're right I meant to say reduce vignetting and not flare.

My very thick circular polarizer shows in the corners at 10mm but that is all. Any UV filter wouldn't do that as even thick ones are thinner than the the polarizer. I've been using the EW-83II hood instead of the correct one as it uses less bag space and it seems to work well and doesn't vignette.

I'm a hood/filter guy.

That being said I hated the hood on my 10-22. It was big, obnoxious, and it didn't seem to help any. Keeping the front threads and element from being dinged around was countered by how wide it was which made it harder to avoid things that would catch on it in the first place.

I bought the hood. Used it a few times, but didn't see much point in it. The hood doesn't give you any meaningful protection and it is too big to fit in my bag.

I use slim UV filers. If you use a slim UV filer, make sure you get one with front threads. You are not going to be stacking lens, but the threads are what holds the lens cap.

I retract this, I found my 10-22 and it does not have the hood on it. Not sure where it is, it's big so I doubt I've lost it.

I only use the hood if I happen to have it on me. It's a pain to carry around, especially in a smaller camera bag, because it's the size of a plate. I travelled around Europe for 3 months without hood or filter on my 10-22. All is well - knock on wood.

I use the hood when I have space in my camera bag for it, if not, I leave it at home. I prefer having it than not, however.
