Straight hoods work great on primes, but are only effective at the widest end of a zoom. Were they effective at the long end, they would vignette at the wide end. The petal type is a working compromise and a pretty universal solution on zoom lenses. 
On-camera flash with shadows cast by lens or hood is nothing new—pretty much a universal problem except with short lenses. No problem with my D700 if I am using my 105mm or shorter primes. Pretty useless with zoom lenses.
