43mm with MH-RE49

Will 43mm limited work with MH-RE49 hood?

It'll fit, but that's a 40mm crop hood, so you'll get vignetting on FF.

But, 40mm works on FF with a hood with little vignetting correctable in post, or am I wrong?

I have test shots that I can check. As far as I recall the hood causes black corners, but will double check. Without the hood the 40mm only has minor vignetting wide open.

Thanks a lot. I really don't like hood on 43mm defense pancake form factor

Seems to work well for me. Also makes the whole package smaller.

The MH-RE 49 (or MH-RC 49) hoods are for the HD Pentax-DA 40mm f2.8 (or SMC version) if any one is interested.

Regards

I just checked the shots, the hood does not seem to darken the corners, unlike what I thought, but it does reduce the overall illumination of the scene by about half a stop based on what I can see.
