looking for the appropriate hood

so, I need to check my reasoning with more experienced members
I just bought the Sigma 75-200 3.8 lens online for my K5. Now, its a cheap lens and I want to make the best of it so I'm trying to locate a good hood for it. The lens comes with the hood, but the lens hood was designed for the lens when mounted on a 35mm camera
I came to the conclusion that I should look for a hood designed for a 100-300 5.6 lens. Also it would also help if the filter diameter of the hould would be 55mm (as is the one on the Sigma)
does my conclusion sound logical?

Hoya 55mm Screw-In Rubber Zoom Lens Hood for 35mm to 200mm H55RH

Rubber hoods have the advantage
that you can bend them to cut off bright light
coming in from the side.

I have had that lens for a couple years and found that the screw on 55mm hood that comes with it is decent and performs adequately. It also works well with the rubber hood which is easier to pack in the camera bag. You will like the lens, it has good IQ for a circa 1988 product and is decent AF too.

I've seen what it can do and considering its price, its a STEAL

It is a steal, I payed $100 for it and got amazing quality ( I beleive it is rebranded Zeiss glass). IQ is good wide open and I use it to shoot basketball and hockey. Grab one if you find one.
