Lens hood for Pentax f70-210

I have a Pentax f 70-210 and would like add a lens hood to it. I did a search and the results were vague. Diameter is 49mm. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just read some comments on using a hood with this lens and I thought of my old hood for a Takumar 135/3.5. It was also used on the Takumar 200/5.6. It is approximately 55mm deep and 62mm dia. outside. A 58mm cap sort of fits the end. It does appear to work, even at 70mm, because of the APS-C crop.

If you can find a hood with a larger diameter, it can be reversed and fit over the lens barrel. Maybe 67mm-72mm and 62mm long would work. I have considered doing actual math on this to choose other hoods but never done it, and sellers of cheap hoods don't always disclose actual dimensions.
