Re: always on all lenses

I use them all the time, on all lenses - prime or zoom.

On the plus side:
They help prevent flare
They help to recess and protect the front of the lens

They have absolutely no negative impact on image quality (unlike a protective glass filter for example)

On the minus side:

They make the lens slightly larger - at the same time, SLR's are often bulky enough it doesn't make a huge difference, and they can always be reversed or packed separately for storage.

I see no real reason not to use them, and lots of benefits...
