What size lens hood for DA L 55-300?


I believe the normal DA 55-300 uses a 58mm. Does the DA L version use the same size?

I noticed the DA and DA L 55-200 use different sizes so that's why I'm not assuming both versions of the 55-300 use the same size.

As far as I know, the filter threads are the same on the DA 50-200mm and DA L 50-200mm - both 52mm. Only the DA 50-200mm WR has different thread of 49mm.

Per our lens review database, the filter threads for the DA and DA L 55-300mm's are also the same - both are 58mm. According to the lens specs, they use the same hood, too.
