That's very good to hear. I wasn't sure if you were aware of it or not. A very neat design which I have to try out. However I must say, the cameras deal pretty good with sunlight. And sometimes maybe you want that "artistic effect" of sun rays/glare etc. Sometimes I have been taking photos into direct sunlight and the cameras could handle it, the photos look pretty good, it was crazy. But of course I'm not saying this lens hood wouldn't be a major help against sun light.
