Hood for DA* 55mm

Anyone know where I can pick up a new hood or knock off hood for this? Pentax Canada told me its no longer available through them. I don't care if its an off brand...

Have you looked on eBay? They've got metal hoods, plastic hoods, hoods of various sizes.
Or you can try taking a look at KEH's Pentax used accessories section; that's where I got an OEM hood for my DA* 50-135.

The filter diameter for the DA* 55 is 58mm, I believe.

Seems not too unreasonable - could ask for international postage?

I read on another thread that a user bought the "fake" bayonet hood for the DA55-300 which is also 58mm and it worked perfectly on the DA55.
I bought one for the DA55-300 and quality is ok.

What?

That hood is OEM and should be available through Pentax Canada.

Call 'em back. Try Henry's or Vistek or a dealer of repute.

Lol, I requested it when I sent in my 55 for repairs, they had it for 5 weeks. On the invoice it even says unavailable. How do I post a mobile photo on here? Im serious as to what it says on my invoice lol!

Is the filter diameter all you need to know to pick a lens hood?

If itīs a threaded hood, then yes. If itīs a bayonet, then itīs a bit of a guess for no original hoods. Seems the DA55-500 bayonet is the same as the DA55
