Always have one on for lens protection. I use Canon hoods.

The L lenses come with hoods, so no worries.

Nearly every time. The only time I don't, is when I'm stacking plate filters on my ultrawide.

I use the factory hood if it came with one.
If not, I buy a much less expensive 3rd party hood.
It's the best protection for your front element.
And it helps control flare/glare.

Very best,

I use all the time. Some people who don't understand wonder why I use the hood inside like at basketball games. Dropping the camera with the lens can happen. The hood might protect the lens from damage.
Also if the sun is in the wrong place it can help with flare.
My advise is buy them and use them all the time.
Like someone else said, the L's come with the hood included. Sigma includes hoods, and I hope Tamron's do as well (I have one on order).

I always use hoods, and never use protective filters.

Why did you mention this? It wasn't asked, and now will turn into a filter-argument thread. :rolleyes:

Well, you are the one bringing my post to the forefront with the bold text. And if you want to be Captain Literal, the OP asked who used them and what kind, and was offered several responses with WHY they were used, which was not mentioned either... :rolleyes:

Well, *now* it will, seeing as you've called attention to it which, in turn, made me call attention to you calling attention to it!
