Maybe, maybe if I'm inside at home, it's late and nobody's watching I'll whip it outwithout a hood.

They're my #1 lens protection. The 17-40 is a royal pain as it's as big as a dinner plate and doesn't fit in a bag for $#&*!, but I still haul it around. And, there's the added image improvement cutting out stray light.

10-20% of the time I've got a clear protection (B+W, Marumi) filter for outside windy/dusty/inclement weather - but the hood is still on.
