Lens shade incompatibility! 18-55mm vs 18-55mm WR

Turns out the lens shade issued with the old 18-55mm kit lens I got with my K100D will not fit on the new 18-55mm I bought with my K-5. They are both marked for 52 mm, but for some reason they are NOT interchangeable. Be sure you have the right shade for your lens - it's frustrating if you trust that the old shade should work on the new lens - it won't!

Very interesting! I think you're right- the WR lens's hood seemed to have a different texture.
