"Cons - no lens hood for a $700 lens "

The JJC lens hood at $36 fits the 75mm well and is well made. It will also fit on the 75mm reversed for storage.

Thanks Shawn. I could live without it for now so no need to buy a hood.

It is a pity to leave such a beautiful lens without a hood : the hood has two functions, first it prevents flare making sure that you keep micro contrast at the best level and don't get ghosts; secondly it will protect the lens from scratches and other damages like acid rains effects on the coating etc.

li got the JJC lenshood from eBay and it is particularly well made and worth its price.
