I’m the same. I shoot holstered, so in and out the bag all day. If it can’t fit, it’s not being used. Many of my lenses have hood mounted full time.

This is why i want a smaller hood for the 135L. I always use a top loading bag, and do always use lens hoods rather than lens caps. I wouldn't feel comfortable putting a lens face down in a bag without a hood or cap on, so having to take a hood off, reverse it, put the lens cap on is a lot longer than a second or two.
I avoid shooting in to the sun so dont normally have any flare issues anyway, but i do feel safer with lens hoods on.

Just a quick update. The lens hood arrived but the idiots sent the wrong one. I ended up getting a EW-62. Still waiting to get it replaced, but im in no rush as i harldy use the 135L anyway.

If I am expecting to need to take a shot in a second’s notice, I am not putting my camera back in a bag so I still don’t follow the why.

well, I'de say you dont shoot holstered, so I'll explain it another way.

When you shoot, I'm guessing you use a strap. After you're done for a moment, you simply let your camera dangle, so you're not faced with issues of putting your camera back in the bag. That's where I differ, I have no place to let it dangle, and some people prefer not to let it exposed to the elements.

So instead, if you had to reverse you're hood everytime you let your camera dangle, wouldnt that drive you mad? Some folks shoot, then put it back in their bag. They may do this all day long, and some seconds here, some there all day will add up to minutes wasted, and it's generally a killjoy. I do what I can to make shooting a pleasure. I dont fiddle with caps of any kind or hoods in the field. That's how I flow, quick and efficient. I have the 135A and with the hood, it simply wouldnt fit my think tank bag without reversal. If I'm shooting 1 body at an event, I've got 3 primes to juggle, I dont like stuff slowing me down at all. I really dont like it to the point that I shoot all the same aperture primes so I dont have to fiddle with manual settings. When I get home, I can run a preset and PP an entire set, similar settings for all, one shot and I'm done.

That's just how my workflow goes, I hate wasting time and being slow.

I wouldn’t worry about how others work, whatever works for you should be good enough for you.

For what’s its worth I haven’t said I put my camera away after every shot, but I also don’t want to stop and have to put things down when i do want to put my camera away. Going in to a shop//cafe. Going on the train or bus, loads of reasons to put a camera away, and none have anything got do with taking photos. Being able to keep walking whilst doing this is how I want to use my gear.
