I use them on my lenses

  1. They prevent or minimize the possibility of lens flare
  2. They provide insurance against damage when you whack the lens against a door frame or concrete floor
  3. They are easily and inexpensively replaced if gouged and scratched beyond your aesthetic limits

The only time I don't use a lens hood is when shooting macros. Then, getting close is the overriding factor.
