Hoya do a nice line of rubber hoods. They fold back on themsleves for storage and work realy well and are cheap.

I usaulally use a Lumix LX3 for snapshots. Great compact camera. But the sensor is quite small - and the zoom options (24-60mm) are quite limited.
So, I got a K-01. I find that AF is a MUST for snap shots. I'm trying out a Fa 43mm 1.9 lIMITED and a FA 24mm 2.0, which are both very sharp, excellent Pentax lenses. I will soon be trying out one of my zoom lensens, as a snap shot lens. What i wold prefere is a something like a 24-90mm lens IN A VERY SLIM edition.Such a lens is unfortunately not available: Hopefully I'll find one some day :-) Untill then I'll probably use my Tamron 28-75mm f2.8, which is a brilliant, but rather large lens, but stilll smaller than my favorite zoom - the FA* 2.8 28-70mm AL :-)
