01 lens hood time again -- what are you finally using ?

This is one of the older thread which is now over one year old:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-q/171777-40-5mm-hood-q.html
So, I kept looking and came across this:

40 5mm Screw Vented Lens Hood for Leica M LM Voigtlander Summicron Lens Lens Cap | eBay

and wondered if that would do the trick on the 01 lens for the Q. It doesn't say if this is plastic or metal (likely plastic ?), or maybe just not to bother and pick something else.

There are loads of available hoods out there for the 01 and 02 lenses, including some vented metal ones but I read that the "screw on" caps are a real pain.

Has anyone come to a satisfactory "kit" (hood) for their 01 and/or 02 lenses ? Anyone could purchase the hood(s) and "pinch" caps from one single location? While the prices for the items are good, the shipping sometimes is way much more than the hood itself.

Thanks!

JP

I seem to recall someone using that hood on the Q but can't seem to remember precisely who it was that mentioned it. I also recall some debate about the vents allowing light through, which is precisely what a hood is supposed to not do.

I use the JJC copy of the Pentax Hood for the 01 and a square plastic hood for the 02. I haven't decided on the hood choice for the 06 yet. The JJC's came from eBay and I also ordered two squeeze caps for it for around $1.90 from China. All-in-all a very nice setup IMHO.

I use one of these, and don't bother with the screw on or a pinch cap.
I prefer to go capless with this one (HORROR!)

Thanks as always, guys!

So, I take it that this is maybe the "best" approach for a hood ... and not to be bothered with the infamous screw on cap?

Easy enough for a choice then.

Cheers!

I got 01, 02 and 06.

for 01, like most of you, I got the third party hood


for 02, I got this one


for 06, I already order the original from pentax. Too bad that I cannot find the way to orde the third party one.
FYI, there are two third party manufacturer in China who make lens hood - uwinka and jjc, I mostly bought uwinka and they did not make 06 hood.

I bought one, but the darn pinch cap keeps coming off . . .

Mine's metal and in the side it says for Leica . . .

JJC makes a nice bayonet hood for the 06 that can be had off eBay for a reasonable price. I have the uwinka hoods for the 01 and 02 and like them both.

Here's a link:
