Re: SAL70300G - With or Without Hood?

Use the supplied hood where possible. But you probably won't want to when walking around -- aiming the 70-300 with the hood on at someone is likely to get you into trouble...or at least a conversation. I chose a collapsible rubber hood -- much less obvious and offering some 'bump protection'. I'd advise against using a 'protective' filter without a hood when flare might pose a problem -- you'll get more flare with it -- especially if your filter isn't as well 'coated' as the elements of the lens.
