Evening, All. I'm a beginner with a D200 and some really fine glass. It is more than I am capable of, but I was taught to start at the top as you'll get there anyway and this way you save a couple of bucks. Anyway, here we go with a couple of questions that I would like your thoughts on.

1. What is the real purpose of a lens hood? I see some with, some without, new and used with and without. What is its real function, if any.

2. This is up for debate. My lenses are all Nikon. Very fine glass and pretty pricey as you all know. Filters? There seems to be two sides tho this debate. Some say the filter must be as good as the lens or it will bring the lens down to its level. Others say with pricey glass you need the filter to protect it. Your thoughts, please.

3. This is just a forum type question. I am presuming that most of you keep a lens on you D200 at all times. What is it?

I was taught that there are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
