Hoods for kit lenses

I have a K-X with the kit lenses 18-55 and 50-200. I found the Pentax hoods for these on B&H but they seem kinda pricey - are there 3rd party hoods that fit these and don't cause vignetting?

Thanks!

Type the lenses into ebay search box add lenshoods and just pick the cheapest, they will fit.

Even type the lens hood numbers from the Pentax website in ebay.

The rigid petal hoods are really only effective at the wide end.
You might do better with a 3-stage rubber hood, e.g.
3-Stage Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood 52mm - Gadget Infinity
(no endorsement of that vendor).
