With a review like this, if you have money to burn, burn it, unless you have a leica itch that burns like hell!
Eric Hensel: ...Says right in the specs: Hood --no30 2.8 e-mount doesn't either.
My 60mm has a metal hood. If you register it at sigma you'll get a 3 year warranty.
obeythebeagle: This should be a no snark zone, even when the content concerns canine candids. My dog takes me to dog park daily, and I credit the Sony A33 for making me the Ace Ventura of dog photography. Specifically the seven shots per second setting. Add the 500mm autofocus mirror lens and blast away. Out of seventy shots in ten seconds, one usually approaches William Wegman status. Do not approach dog photography like Ansel Adams--waiting for the one perfect shot. Max out your frames per second, and erase the rest.
I hope nothing is wrong with your eyes!
