Re: Petal shape answer.

I went from a skylight filter add on, primarily to protect the lens, to no filter and a petal type, bayonet mount, hood.  Actually provides better protection from knocks and of course lens flare.  The hood reverses on the lens for storage but even without reversing it the lens cap can still be snapped on.  I now leave the hood deployed.
