Do not initialize unnecessarily, C#

The common language runtime initializes all fields to their default values before running the constructor. In most cases, initializing a field to its default value in a constructor is redundant, which degrades performance and adds to maintenance costs. One case where it is not redundant occurs when the constructor calls another constructor of the same class or a base class constructor and that constructor initializes the field to a non-default value. In this case, changing the value of the field back to its default value can be appropriate.
