There always has been an official hood for the 01, the difference is that they are now making the 01 in colors other than silver and are making hoods to match.

Checkout the image of the Q7 on this page:
??????Q7??????????? - ????info
looks like there is now a 40.5mm official lens hood to go with the 01 Standard.
The problem with the Pentax MH-RA40.5 is not availability, it's price. The current price at B&H is $39.00.

Good you posted ... I was ready to hit the button.
I'll wait a little longer when you get yours.

JP, FYI, I just received the jjc lens hood today... it looks nice with the lettering "JJC lens hood replaces MH-RA40.5". It is made of light metal (similar to the 01 lens) and not plastic. For the price I paid, it is not bad and definitely better with a hood than without.

Yup - have the silver 01 and hood, and it works neatly.

I keep a circular polarizer under the hood at (almost) all times, btw., and see no vignetting from that.

I use the OEM hood. It does the job and looks the part.

Thanks, I just got an 01 lens for my Q and definitely want a hood. It fits well in a large pocket without the hood, though, so we'll see how well it gets used.

I have the JJC 01 hood also. Very good clone of the Pentax official hood at a much more realistic and reasonable price.
