Hood for the A-35-105.

Has Pentax recommended a hood for the 35-105? I just bought this lens from the marketplace and would like to have a hood for it. I prefer metal hoods.

Another thing, the lens has a small scratch on the front lens, I think it wont effect image quality but it does not look nice, all my other lenses are in perfect condition. Can anything be done to remove it?

Thanks all have a nice summer.

The OEM Pentax fitting hood is a clip-on rubber model RH-B70. I have one for mine and also a metal Tamron w/a hood that fits the threads. Can't help with the scratch.

I use a 40mm deep screw-in metal hood from eBay. Cost me about $10, works fine. Very solid, matches the lens perfectly.

As to the scratch, don't worry about it if it has no impact on image quality. With the hood on the lens, no one will notice such a scratch.

Thank you for your insight on the hood matter and comforting words regarding the scratch.
