Ok after some more searching B&H site says "It is not designed for any other lens" so i guess not. But then on some other site I seen that the 16-45 could use PH-RBL, PH-RBK and PH-RBM.
So i just and lost as ever.

If your lens is the smc PENTAX DA 16-45mm F4.0 ED AL, then according to Pentax Japan (website) the hood is a PH-RBL 67mm

FAJ18-35 or FA24-90

For me there was a better solution: as FA24-90 (already had it) and FAJ18-35 use same thread for hood I ended up purchasing second-hand FAJ18-35 (el cheapo) after loosing my DA16-45 polarizer window cover. Now I have hoods for replacement and a FF almost rectilinear wide-angle plastic toy for my film cameras :-)
Best and happy shooting, JR

I have both!
Yes PH-RBM from 17-70 is working like PH-RBL on 16-45 and vice versa.

17-70 hood on 16-45

Is anybody able to do detailed comparison of these two hoods, please? I mean, apart of the fact that the one from 17-70 fits the mounting of 16-45, does it also have exactly the same size (length) and shape? I need one for 16-45 and I want to just confirming that obtaining cheaper option (17-70 one) will not cause vignetting...
