No more shooting with hood in reverse position?
1

I've just took note of the fact that the control ring on genuine RF lenses is always located at the foremost part of the lens:

Before this moment, the hood in reverse position usually blocked only manual focusing. I like shooting with reverse hood, and I hated the foremost placement of zoom ring in my Tamron 70-300 mm lens, so I had to employ the push-pull zoom technique with that lens.

But now, with RF lenses you'll simply lose access to a certain camera setting until you remove the hood. Alternatively, you'll need to have two dials assigned to the same setting, or simply set the Lens Control Ring to OFF.

I wonder, if other people value shooting with stored hood as much as me, or it's just a minor inconvenience, doesn't worth mentioning?

I don't shoot with reverse hood. Why should I?

I'm used to shoot with reverse-mounted hood, but I can easily undo this habit with RF lens, so it's more or less fine.

I really like shooting with reverse-mounted hood, and position of Lens Control Ring will be the major inconvenience for me.
