I've been reading a few lens reviews, and noticed that Ken Rockwell always makes comments like this:
"I'd leave either an 86mm Hoya Super HMC UV on the lens at all times. I would leave the hood at home."
"I never mess with hoods. I'd leave it in the box for resale time."
Why the aversion to hoods? This seems to go against others recommendations
I've always preferred to use them to cut out stray light.
