I like getting the hood, but...

I much prefer a lens to come with the hood. But my Panasonic 25mm lens has the most annoying hood I've ever used. It is square, and thus can't be reversed on the lens to transport, and I can't get the cap on/off with the hood in place without really working at it... Why wouldn't they make a pinch lens cap?

I'm not sure I'm better off having paid for the Panny hood in the price of the lens given that I leave it at home So if the hood is designed well, then yes I'd rather it came with the lens and I paid a more modest price for it up front.
