B+W lenshood on DA*50-135mm?

Anyone using a lenshood other than the one provided by Pentax on the DA*50-135mm.

Like this one:

B+W 67mm Screw-In Metal Telephoto Lens Hood #960 65041212 - B&H

I was wondering if this kind of hood could cause a vignetting problem at 50mm. This hood has advantages though: it's all metal and it can be rotate when mounted on a polarizer. Might be a good hood replacement solution... but I'm not sure.



Thx for the feedback,

I doubt that it would be any better. Did you know that there's a removable flap at the bottom of the stock hood that's designed to allow for the use of polarizers?

I have the 77mm for my FA*200 & 49mm for FA43 & 77. All working fine w/o vignetting. The only thing I don't like about the 77mm one (same as the 67mm pic but quite different from the 49mm hood) is the rather matt finish which feels a little like very fine grit sandpaper. It can scar other surface if not careful (I just polished it till shiny). Otherwise it is a well made hood, much better than Chinese/Indian made hoods which have coarse threads. A pro I have found is that screw-in hood has the same dimension as the lens so it is easier to transport, unlike most bayonet hoods.

Yes, I am aware of that, however this flap, when open, can allow for unwanted light getting on the front lens element, resulting in flare under some specific conditions. That's why I'm looking for such a lenshood, as a complement to the 50-135 hood.
