Da 18-55 wr

I replaced my old Ist DS with a K-50 with the 18-55 WR lens. I noticed the hood from the old 18-55 doesn't fit the new lens. Looks like they changed the design, old one has for tabs that the hold the hood on and the new one only has 3. Are you forced to buiy a Pentax branded hood?

No, you are not forced to buy a Pentax branded hood. When I bought my 18-55WR, I didn't realize it came with a hood, so ordered one off of Amazon very inexpensively. Without the Pentax label, I cannot tell the difference in them. Both have the filter window, both fit very well.

So check out Amazon or EBay.

The WR 18-55s use the PH-RBC instead of PH-RBA. You can get a Chinese knock-off for about $5 on eBay, or a genuine one from Japan for about $20.
