Did you lose yours? I find the OEM to be perfect.

I'd expect nothing less, but I have an off brand 20mm with 55mm threads, and I'd like a compact hood that's smaller than the typical wide angle offerings.

I don't think there are any clones of the OEM hood- at least I haven't seen any!

How about a filter reducer as a hood? I use a 49 -> 28mm on a couple of my lenses.
Find the optimal opening for your lens and get a 55 -> x to use as a hood.

If you meant a hood with a rectangular opening, I'd imagine it would be a minor hassle to align the opening, when used with a threaded mount. Even the DA21 hood, I sometimes turn it a little bit accidentally (after all, who cannot resist constantly fondling such a fine piece of gear?), and that shows up in the photo.

I love the weight of the hood and filter combined.
