Pentax 55-300mm - lens hood short?

one of my friends bought a Pentax 55-300mm.

the original lens hood for Pentax 55-300mm (Lens Hood PH-RBG 58mm) is very big.




so my friends wants to find another lens hood for 58mm:
- plastic (no collapsible rubber)
- short (no long and big)

have you an idea?
where i can find this lens hood?

I'm wondering if there is a point to having a short lenshood in replacement for the original.
The lens hood is designed to reduce flare and the length is in proportion to the focual length of the lens. Reducing the hood length would kinda defeat the purpose of having one.. only benifit would be physical protection not against flare.

Love the post with the hacksaw.. cracked me up.

Cheers

I was thinking the same thing. Why not just skip the hood altogether?

Personally, I like the long hood. Makes me feel like a man with that huge thing sticking out.

Does your friend know that he can put the lens hood on "backwards" when he's not using it?
