Sorry, I linked to the wrong one.

This is actually the one I have for the FA 50/1.4: New! Metal 55mm Standard Screw-in Lens Hood - eBay (item 110381264388 end time Jun-22-09 20:03:27 PDT)

Though in 49mm size, which he appears not to have in stock right now.

I do have the tele version, and I use it on the Jupiter-9.

But you make a good point about the vignetting. Hadn't considered that.

Glad you're using the Jupiter 9!

Just a followup to my point, since deadwolfbones' hood doesn't back up what I was saying now

From left to right--DA*55 hood (designed for digital), Takumar 135/2.5 or 200/4 hood (designed for film), Voigtlander Nokton 58mm hood (designed for FF/film).

The DA*55 and the Nokton can both use the Takumar 135 hood on digital without vignetting, so if you really want to combat flare, you can use a longer hood.

Now to try the 135/3.5 hood on my M50...

LBA says what?

I can use a Takumar 135mm hood on a 35mm lens with no noticeable vignetting.

Wow that hood of the 55 looks pretty massive. Cool

Look here for a line of rubber collapsible lens hoods. I've been using rubber lens hoods on my primes for years, they are nice, they just collapse and don't need to be removed for storage.

THANKS, JimH! I had already tried (half-heartedly) to find something at Adorama but without success. This is perfect - although that first Pentax hood for the 50mm hood isn't as cheap as I was hoping.

I use the Pentax 49mm rectangular hood with my three Pentax primes; FA 35mm, FA 50mm 1.4, DFA 100mm. No vignetting or flare, and I only have to carry one hood in the bag. I expect the rectangular hood would not work on the FA 35mm if it was mounted on a film camera, but it's fine for 1.5X crop.
