Dear Elliot . The 3E is a fantastic lens . Owning several prime lenses , I 
decided to take the 3E on its own to a trip to Labrador last summer .
It is actually very conforable to walk around with only 1 camera / 1 lens .
The results were very , very good .
Concerning the shade , I bought it before the trip because I found that 
the front element was in danger on the 28 position . 
With the shade , you always avoid fingerprints , chocs on the front element , 
and , of course , flaring .
Go for it .
