DA* 50-135mm lens hood replacement - would a Canon hood fit!?

I have a DA* 50-135mm with missing hood that I got for a good price. Obviously, I now want to purchase a hood to pair with the lens as I much prefer use a hood for protection and for optimal IQ.

Anyway, I can't seem to find the original hood online for a reasonable price (I could find one for 50$, but looking at cheaper option for now) and was wondering if any of you guys knew if using a Canon replacement lens hood could somehow work with the Pentax lens. Here is an example of a hood I have in mind http://www.amazon.ca/Dedicated-70-300mm-Replacement-MagicFiber-Microfiber/dp...hood+telephoto

I know it's a LONG shot, because for the hood to fit, things need to be align and diameter of the lens must be pretty much identical, but I thought I might ask, just in case...!

Anyone out there have replaced their DA* 50-135mm? Let me know what product you picked and how it turned out!

Thank you for your help.

I'm I the same situation. I am using the hood from my DA* 60-250 or my screw-in 67mm from my A* 85. Any 67mm screwmount short tele or normal hood would be a potential candidate hood. If needed I can give you details on the length and width of the shortest point on the original hood (same as the 60-250).

I have two 67mm hoods from other pentax zooms. I'll check them on my 50-135 and see what they look like . . .

I know the original would be the best solution, but the only one I could find was on the other side of the ocean and 60$ or so...

The 60-250 and 50-135 have similar needs so they use the same hood. The other 67mm hoods are often a lot shorter designed for a wider angle - the A* 85mm metal hood I have is wider but just about exactly the same length as the shortest part of the hood designed for the lens. It isn't as strong a coverage since a round lens hood doesn't provide the same level of coverage but it is pretty good.
