Hey A*85/1.4 owners! Public service announcement!

I don't think I'm breaking any forum rules here...

If you own the A*85mm f1.4 (or 67 135/f4 macro), you probably know the MH-RA67 metal lens hood is a separate accessory. If you don't have this hood and want to get a brand new one, here's a flea-Bay link:

Pentax Metal Lens Shade: MH-RA 67mm NEW!!! - (eBay item 220176899095 end time Dec-02-07 19:57:02 PST)

If the link doesn't work it's item # 220176899095.

Lucky for all of you that my A*85 came with this hood when I acquired it. Otherwise this wouldn't be a public service announcement, ha ha! It's a nice, solid all metal hood. The metal itself is quite thick. Of all the hoods I have, it has the thickest metal.

Enjoy!

I believe someone from this forum hit the BIN after I posted this thread.

Congrats to the buyer. It's heaps o' fun helping other people spend their money.

Now, will someone sell me the dedicated hood for the FA20-35mm f4? My copy came without it.

If you want a nice hood for the A*85 try to find a hood from the Pentax K85-210mm f3.5 zoom. It is much more compact while still being effective (and it can be stored on the lens in a reversed fashion - nice bonus). The factory A*85 lens hood is HUGE and makes an already big lens REALLY BIG
