I used to use a Lens hood, but it ripped so I had to trash it.
It is definetly good when you shoot indoors to help kill the reflections.
Also you can also consider buying a UV filter just to protect the lens from scratches and excess dust. SOme photographers dont prefer this UV filter such as myself. Costs about 40 bucks for a piece of thin glass.. Poo Poo.
Lets see how your magical F65 can do ya for tomorrow.
You better get some nice telephoto shots for me to see!
