Always use a lens hood. Make sure it is designed for the lens it is on, and that it is completely rotated into position.

(I guessed the question).

And...

Yes they do provide a fairly good amount of protection...

Also....

No. They do not make your images sharper...

However, the increase in contrast a hood can bring 'can' give the 'appearence' that the image is sharper...

I like lens hoods.
