This is a question about the shape of Nikon lens hoods. I'm just back from taking autumn colours and as often when pointing towards but not into the sun have been battling flare. So, as ever, I shield the lens (with recommended hood already in place) with my handor a bit of card to get rid of it (with bits of hand then appearing at the edge of some frames) or mess about setting up so the lens is in the shade of a nearby tree. (Fyi, 35-70/2.8, which yes is flare prone but oh so nice for vegetation pictures, tripod, no filter, hood, etc etc). Life would be a lot easier if the hoods on my lenses were rectangular and not circular. With bayonet mounting, there should be no problems having rectangular hoods; screw-in hoods probably do need to be circular. Does anyone else crave rectangular hoods for both zooms and primes? Even butterfly hoods allow more stray light in than if they had straight edges. Any views?

Helps to reduce stray light which can cause flare.

In less-than-ideal lighting conditions, the performance difference can be substantial.
Flower-Type bayonet lens hood provided with select NIKKOR lenses.
By reducing the amount of non-essential light falling onto the front lens element, lenses can better achieve their optimum optical performance, producing more saturated images.
