I use a rubber hood for the FA50 and I like it a lot because I'm convinced that it improves IQ and it can stay on the lens in the bag because you can fold it back.
Cheers, Ron

I bought 49mm 77mm 62mm 3 Stage Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood for Canon Nikon Sony Sigma Pentax Camera DSLR canon 100d hoya sj4000d7100-in Camera Lens Hood from Consumer Electronics on | Alibaba Group a year ago, and it works just fine. the 3 stage collaprable thing really works, and when its fully retracted it also serves as protecton for the lens.
I also bought Black/Silver Camera Lens Hood Metal Cover 37mm 39mm 40.5mm 43mm 46mm 49mm 52mm 55mm 58mm Thread Mount-in Camera Lens Hood from Consumer Electronics on | Alibaba Group and it is awesome, very nice metal quality for a 3 dollar thing, the only downside of this model is it makes the handling of the lens cover a bit difficult.

When you are using the lens on aps-c you can also use a longer hood meant for 100 to 135mm lenses.

On APS-C, the metal screw-in hood for the Takumar 135/3.5 works fine. It doesn't store very well because it's bigger than the lens, but it shows that you can use a very long hood on APS-C. Of your three links, I'd get the last one because it's the longest and folds up. The first one is too short - probably OK for 28mm.

The b+w hoods are also very nice, I own a 58mm one. For APS-C you can mask it with some black cardboard, foamy or plastic sheet. Kind of like the DA 18-50 or 21 limited hood.

Thanks every one. I like the original Pentax metal hood but the shipping time is longer. I went with Pentax rubber hood. I would like to experiment with these so also ordered couple more.

I tried using the hood that came with DFA 100 macro but it was wobbling, not a perfect fit.

I plan to use this with K1.

The MH-RA 49 from the 43mm limited works very well on the FA 50mm with protecting the front element, it's discrete and no vignetting at all on full frame.
You can easily find it new from 25 to 30 USD or EUR.
