Rarely

Generally I didn't, and never used filters. The Sigma showed up all the other manufacturers by including hoods with their lenses, so as it was there I used it. Mind you, the lenses I tended to use (non-Sigma) tended to have recessed front elements anyway.

Had a feeling that when a hood was included with a lens, it was right for that lens. But otherwise there were some pretty useless hoods around.
