pentax p-fa 35mm f/2 alternative lens hood


does any one know, or can any one test, whether the lens hood for the d-fa 50mm macro (PH-RBC 49 mm) fits on the fa 35? they both take 49mm filters, and both have bayonet type hoods, so...?

i bought it as my "normal" prime for the k10d, so its angle of view is equivalent to that of a ~50mm lens on 35mm format (which is what i assume the d-fa 50mm macro hood is designed for).

i have no complaints about the fa35 hood, and i know there probably would not be that much difference, but i was curious, since the d-fa 50 hoods are available separately from b&h, and bayonet style is much easier to deal with than just using a screw in hood (which also would not say PENTAX on it ).

thank you!
