49mm lens hood

Can someone recommend a good 49mm lens hood?

It's for my FA 50mm.

I've had it for a while but just never got around to buying one.
Why does Pentax even sell that lens without the hood?

Pentax does produce the lens hood for this lens, but for some reason it's difficult to find on the market. But you can buy B+W metal lens hood instead.

Original Lens hood

There are a lot of model available from third party, but if you intend to buy online you should know exactly its quality. It is hard to justify from the pictures.
My favorites are come from Pentax old model hood, looks so sexiest. These model also cover some FA & DA primes lens (limited).

Thanks Fengy.

Are you able to put the lens cap in with the hood on the lens?
I assume you have that lens hood.

FWIW, i bought an old metal screw on Pentax short tele hood on eBay recently for just $5 plus shipping. With crop factor, it works fine on a 50mm (with a UV filter attached) without any vignetting, though it is designated as: "Takumar 100mm/105mm/120mm".

yes, and i also bought a couple of those from heavystar and they are excellent quality.

Somebody has that B&W hood for $2.77! Looks sweet:
Amazon.com: B&W B+W 49MM Aluminum Hood #950 Lens Hood - B&W 65041210: Electronics

I'd buy it myself, but the shipping cost would make it ...less than worth my while!

Heavystar sold me a hood for my Leica thread mount Jupiter 9. It is a very nice hood; he was great to deal with.

Heavystar was also the dealer from whom I bought the 49-43mm from step-down ring to attach my Raynox 150 to my primes. Fine product, service a notch above the usual.
