SAL70300G - With or Without Hood?
Dec 5, 2012

I've recently purchased this lens and fully realized that the hood would be huge and it would be an issue when using a polarizer.  So my question is rather simple, how many of you use this lens without the hood and is there a real issue with flare.

If the lens performs well without a hood then I can also purchase a 72mm Polarizer to use on both this lens (with a step up adapter) and the 16-50.

Thanks
