Dave, I agree, with where the hood attaches, I think it can potentially do more damage than provide protection in case of an impact. And given how flare resistant this lens is, I think it'll do just fine without that tiny little hood...I'm just curious to see what the petal-shaped hood looks like, but even though I put UV filters/hoods on my other lenses, I think I'll use this lens "naked".

The only protection im after is to keep the walls of my camera bag off the front element so i dont need a lens cap, but as it can be quit tight in the bag if i have other things in it im going to err on the side of caution and not bother.
I agree though, this lens seems to be very flare resistant.

Wouldn't a filter be a better option?

No, i never use them. A filter would probably less scratch resistant than the front element.

At the cost of possible IQ loss, no, ill stick with the naked element lol.

The lens is very flare resistant, im not sure putting a filter on it will be as good.

I'm a huge fan of filters (I've had my lenses sprayed with everything from ocean spray to fire retardant, had my ex jab one lens with a hiking stick, etc) but I won't be using one on the Shorty40, mainly because I don't want to add extra weight to the inner barrel...the AF sounds like it might be sensitive to that sort of stuff...also, the filter would make the inner barrel protrude more, again, making it more susceptible to bumps, etc...

FYI, this Zeikos hood screws in, and has an outside knurled ring to lock the hood into the correct position. No pressure needed to install that would compress the lens toward the body. Pictures still pending...

i usually dump my cam and lens in the bag without putting the lens cap on ...
that's why i either have a filter or hood or none on lenses that have the front element deep in the lens or a super cheap lenses like the plastic fantastic and kit lenses

i'm torn on this one, it's only slightly deep ... the hood is useless (and unwelcome in this case) ...

Thanks...if you like it, that's great, I think it *LOOKS* good...but kinda ruins the point for many of us: a small lens that'll go unnoticed. That thing more than doubles the length of the lens! Given that it mounts to the inner barrel, I'd say it makes damage to the lens due to bumping 100 times more likely than not having it at all (as opposed to hoods that mount to the outer barrel, which actually protect the lens).

"Go unnoticed"? On a DSLR?

I don't think "noticed" or "unnoticed" is THAT much of an issue. Holding a point and shoot at arms length in front of yourself seems to me to be more visible than holding a camera up to your eye. If you're trying to shoot candids/street, hyperfocal and quickdraw will be about the same distraction, no matter WHAT camera you're lifting. Jm2c...

Regards!
Don
