I have seen it and heard it discussed for thre 180mm F2.8 because that built in shade is so short on that lens. On the 105mm F2 DC, it would not be necessary as the front glass is recessed quite a bit. If you are getting flare on the 135mm DC, then go for it.

Not that I'm getting flare or anything. Ron says it's better but I'm a little clueless with this. Or maybe I'm not shooting with this lens enough. :biggrin:
