    Are you refering to SLR or ur sony?

    With lens hood., flare could be avoided.. It will improve contrast too.

    When using those built in flash, better remove the hood as some hood will block the bulit in flash.

    Keeping the lens hood on means that you can leave the cap off, and the camera is ready to shoot anytime.

    Then my answer is applicable to you...

    Something hood can prevent a lens damage if u accidentally bang the lens onto a hard surface. This is becos the hood will take most of the damage.

    The morale of the story is:

    If the lens had a hood, USE IT!
