I know this question has probably been asked quite a few times here,
but how much difference does a lens hood make in the quality of an image. I know in sunlight it can help with flare and I have read that a hood helps in the overall contrast in an image. The reason I ask is that they can really be a pain to deal with and I just don't like using them. In film days most lenses that I owned did not come with one and I never used one. What do you guys do?
