Q7 and 5-15 lens hood

The JJC lens hood for the 5-15 lens worked great on Q, but gives dark corners on Q7. Have someone found a better lens hood?

I picked this up but haven't yet put it through its paces.

I saw this one but haven't bought it as it is screw on and I think I will miss the reversible bayonet.

Interesting, The Pentax Webstore still specifies the same OEM hood.

You could alter the JJC hood into a pedal shape, a little trial and error should fix the dark corners

A few minutes with a dremel, not pretty but it works:
