Not happy (Jan)

Had my K10D on a studio stand, had to adjust the stand, next thing i know, CRASH i look over and my 16-45 is resting lopsidedly on the desk, oh shit, i am in panic stations. Raise the stand back up and see the lens hood is sitting crookedly, oh crap i have broken the barrel. Damn, but wait, the lens hood has fallen off and the lens is fine...

Any one know the cost of a new 16-45 lens hood.

Sadly, around $40(USD). But much better than $400 for a new lens.


Pentax PH-RBL Lens Hood

Don't know if this helps you or not.

ouch. Lucky you had the lens hood on indoors too or it would have been the filter thread or the front element. You can get screw on lens hoods. The rubber maybe cushion some things, although the rigidity of a plastic hood is always good.

I dropped my kit lens once. It was on the second shelf in my cabinent. I was pulling out a lens from the back and my elbow clipped the kit lens and it fell 2 ft onto hardwood. thankfully nothing happened.

The lens appears to be functioning properly at the moment, no apparent field of focus issues, thankfully.

I always have the lens hoods on, especially in shared studio situation where there can be as many as 10 other people working in the room, light spill becomes a major issue.
