Someone mentioned self-storing. Don't forget you can flip it around and leave it on the camera, but facing towards the body if you don't need it.

Just watch those fingers when the lens retracts. It's a very strong motor and easy to get caught between the hood petals and the body when you turn off the camera.

I'm using it all the time now.

I'm using lens hood like this too, but I wonder if I could cause some damage to lens system by removing it and putting it on all the time, because it needs more force to put it on than just a light screw... What are your experiences/opinions on this?
