Anywhere to get a hood for the Sigma 170-500 (86mm)?

Hi guys,
I have a Sigma 170-500 with no hood and was thinking I'd be able to get some eBay knock off of it for $10 but I can't find one... any idea where I can get one?
I'd prefer the one just like the original, that turns and clicks on rather than a screw one like a filter, but I'll take that if it's all there is.
It's an 86mm but clips on to the outside of the lens, and is not flower shaped, about 8cm long.

Hi, you could try Sigma, they may be able to help you out, but there are a couple of US Ebayers who sell the metal ones.

The model number is LH925-01

Here's what Sigma told me:

Thank you for contacting Sigma Corporation of America.

The hood is $25.00 +$7.00 for S&H to a US address.

You can fill out the online payment form on the link below and send me the confirmation when you receive it so I can forward it to our parts department - Online Payment Form

I have an 86mm metal hood that I don't use anymore because of the extra length it adds. I got two step-down rings (86mm-77mm and 77mm-55mm), and haven't noticed any vignetting yet.

I had the same problem when I lost the hood to my 30mm f1.4

Sigma has the lowest price. Other dealers were charging 10-20$ more, I think I saw 40$ on ebay!

If you choose to go with a threaded type, make sure the threads match. IIRC the Sigma threads on that lens are 'Course'. The filter I bought for mine was an 86c rather than 86.
