Hood for Takumar Bayonet 135mm f/2.5?

I recently picked up a Takumar Bayonet 135mm f/2.5 on ebay but it did not come with a hood. There seem to be exterior threads on the lens that I assume would be for the lens hood as well as the interior threads for filters & such.

Does anyone know of a source for this hood? Or if my assumption on the threads is correct?

I'm not willing to spend a ton for a hood for $50 lens but it would be nice to have.

Thanks!

The Pentax hood that's designed for it is the PH-R58, a plastic clip-on hood. I've sure you could also use a 58mm screw-in generic rubber hood, though!

It should have a built-in hood. Just pull on those exterior threads, which aren't really threads at all.

Adam,

Filter thread on mine is 52mm? But yes I could thread on a hood. I don't think it will take a clip on though......

Mike,

OK, I'm officially . I've used this lens a dozen times in the last month and never noticed that it had an attached hood. Huge duh!
