Sigma Lens hood vs LandRover Discovery.....

The fact that Sigma's lens hood was ON the lent and in the extended position saved me €3300 lens from destruction when a careless safari driver drove a 2-ton LandRover over the lower end of my camera gear bag. Had i not had the hood in that position (or if he was 30cm more to the left), the whole lens would be would be in this shape....... and the damage would be far greater than €120. Guess i was lucky in my misfortune since everything else (including me) was unharmed, but it kinda confirms what i always do. Lens hoods ALWAYS on and ALWAYS extended.

And pay attention to those safari drivers. The line of sight puts anything close and low to a tall 4x4 out of sight. Including you.
