Lens hood question?

It allows you to rotate a circular polarizer filter without removing the whole hood to do it.

Personally I find it easier to just remove the hood and manipulate the filter.

You know what, I'm glad you asked that... because I've been baffled about that... for forever.

Now that the answer has been posted.. I think I'll sleep a little better tonight.
