"..but the Zeiss 35-70/3.4 is one of very few lenses that I normally use without a hood." You know, me too, but always a wide brimmed hat.
The Mamiya hood is large and therefore very protective of bumps, I imagine the Contax hood is the same, another reason to use some type of hood.
Those images look compelling, dcjs, it just destroyed the 2nd image - especially bad given it was a diffuse overcast...the zoom has a very large and prominent front element, so it stands to reason.
