    It's not worth keeping the kit lens unless you don't have any other option. Adding a UV filter and a hood doubles the value of the lens, so no, I wouldn't bother.

    that small thing is pointless. the front rotates so thats why you can't use a proper hood with it. it might be worth it on the far end though? the et60 and et65 both fit
