Lens hood

Hello,

I wanted to ask what you guys are using for lens hood on a 85mm and 100/105mm (I recently acquire a 105mm and likely a 85mm). There are "tele" metal hoods like the B&W one but I am not clear if this would vignette or not as nobody really specify if it is FF or APC.

Thanks.

Luc

For my Jupiter-9 85/2, I am using the "tele" version generic metal lens hood (S&W brand) from heavystar on eBay. It works fine on APS-C with no vignette. Since it works for the 85, it should be no problem with a longer focal length. The quality is very good and the prices excellent. One of the nice things is that the hood will accept a 58mm pinch-type cap. He sells them as a pair if you like. Here is a link to his eBay store:

Hello Steve,

Have you used this hood on film i.e. full frame?
That is my concern that a hood that is not vigneting on APC will not be wide enough on film.

Cheers,

Luc

I have used it on film as well and it seems to be deep enough. It is quite a bit deeper than the built-in hood on my Vivitar 135 . I will be able to tell you better in a few days after I get my latest rolls of film back. I was out in full sun shooting wakeboarding with the J-9! It is easier than it sounds since the subject is pretty much constant distance behind the boat.

Let me find a tape and I will measure it...

Thank you very much Steve. Not that the cost is that high to make it a hard decision but it would be one more thing gathering dust...

Cheers,

Luc

The Pentax 85/100 clip-on plastic hood is under $10 at KEH.
It stores in reverse so is quite convenient.

If you buy an original Pentax dedicated lens hood, which I also recommend, just be careful that you get the correct sized one.

The 52mm round hood is for K series lenses: K85/1.8, K100/4 Macro & K105/2.8
The 49mm round hood is for M series lenses: M85/2.0, M100/2.8 & M100/4 Macro

Thanks guys.
I could not find any at KEH. I might be looking for the wrong part?

The lens hood you are looking for is somewhat hard to find and is costly.

(The 52mm round hood is for K series lenses: K85/1.8, K100/4 Macro & K105/2.8)

When KEH does get them in they sell for $31.00 in Ex condition. There is currently one for sale in a LA online Camera store for $55.00, but that is way too much.

Just keep an eye on eBay, I recently sold one for $4.99 that was in rough shape.

Luc,

There is your answer in regards to size in case you are still interested in the cheap route.

Those currently listed at KEH appear to be for the -M lenses,
but it might be worth giving them a call to confirm.

By the time you get to an 85mm, you usually actually have to go out of your way to find a hood that will vignette on you, even on full frame. You're pretty safe with what 'Mr. Heavystars' sells in a generic metal tele hood. I use a lot of that brand, myself.

Hello everybody and thanks a lot for all the information. Indeed the cheap solution seems very attractive and I will likely give it a try. What I am thinking is that way I do not really need an UV filter for glass protection and cleanliness. The drawback is that to use a circ pol or an orange filter I need to unscrew the hood.
As anybody tried a spacer ring which has a thread at both end so that it would be possible to screw a filter at the end of the "hood" without removing it. The one I have seen on eBay are 36mm deep which is about the same as the hood.

Cheers,

Luc

I use an Adorama collapsible rubber hood on my 85mm 1.8 M42 Takumar. I don't remember what it cost, but probably less than $10. My 105 Takumar came with it's original Pentax metal hood.
