Lens hood for the FA 20-35

I've been looking for the original hood, PH-RBA 58, and it seems to be like searching for the yeti. There is one seller on ebay with an estimated ship date of several weeks out, but his feedback is very sketchy. KEH doesn't list any.

Does anyone know of another source or an alternative hood to use in place of the original ?

Not easy to come by for sure. I passed on several 20-35's because the hood was missing. Took me almost 4 months of watching ebay to find one in excellent shape with the hood.

I did find this: but no idea of the reliability of the sellers.

Here you go: PH-RBA 58 | B&H Photo Video

It was in stock when I got from them a little about a 1 1/2 years ago, but at least you can order it......though a bit expensive

The screw on hood for the M24-35/4 might work. It is also 58mm. Of course it is also impossible.

B&H has them. It would be a special order with 2-4 weeks out. BTW, do you like that lens?

Not OP but -Tssss...don't tell anyone - that one and the fish-eye F17-28mm are my secret mini weapons. Easily fits in my of right pocket. 245 plus 255grams plus a shewing gum.
Just waiting for the new K1L

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'll check them out and give an update here. I did look at eBay and a seller in Japan had one but their seller feedback wasn't very good so I passed on that one for now. I really like the FA 20-35 on my K-1, I use it mostly for outdoor landscapes thus the desire for a hood. Some prices seem kind of outlandish, but maybe that's what I'll need to pay for one.

This isn't a Pentax hood and not sure if it'll intrude. But might be worth a punt. I used one and don't really know if it worked as a flare inhibiter but did stand up to bumps.
