Tamron SP lens hood #73 FH

Hi, I am trying to get a lens hood for a Tamron SP 180mm f2.5 lens and wondered if any members could direct me to a source of an original or replacement hood ( #73 FH).

I was hoping to use the lens hood from my Tamron SP 80-200mm f 2.8 Zoom which has the same filter size (77mm) as the 180mm lens but it has a different part #.

Thanks. Tony.

Since there were only about 3000 of these lenses made and spread among virtually all SLR manufacturers, you are going to have a hard time finding someone that has the hood and not the lens. Your best bet would be to get a screw in aftermarket metal hood. If you want the dimensions of the OEM hood for the 180mm, let me know and I'll get it out tonight and measure it.

Edit: It is 60mm long (2 6/16 inches) and an inner diameter of 85mm (3 5/16 inches). The hood is metal and is not tapered.

This is an additional update since a couple of people have asked me about the dimensions of the Tammy 180mm hood. I think the Nikon HN-31 or 3rd party equivalents would make a good replacement since they use 77mm filter threads.
