Oh right, yes, the hood on the 50mm is the telephoto version of the B+W hood. The hood is designed for a 70mm or so telephoto lens which matches well with the K20D cropped sensor. It works really well, and doesn't cause any more vignetting with it on than off. It does work tho, shooting wide open with the attached hood gives the picture a little kick in contrast.

The hood on the 35mm f2 is a B+W standard lens hood which is designed for a 50mm lens. Perfect for the cropped K20D field of view.
