Hm, just now I go online and check what lens is available on local Pentax store. Strange, but there is PH-RBA available, and that's lens that doesn't fit on DA L WR lens, according to Pentax staff. So, I'm confused now. Which hood is for which lens....
Also, that PH-RBA is cheaper, that's make no sense to me. Maybe Jimmy is right, maybe the right hood for my new lens is PH-RBC?
Apparently the database here is wrong. The DA L WR uses the PH-RBC just like the DA.

The hoods for the original DA's and DA L's had the same bayonet style hood. I never owned a WR kit (other than 18-135), so the bayonet may be different.
As far as the new DA L WR, I don't have a clue. That's why I had said you may need a 52mm screw on hood. I hope someone else knows if the DA WR's have the same mount as the new DA L WR's....

If it is a WR (DA or DA L) lens then the correct hood is PH-RBC.

Because it is a kit lens that is not sold separately by Ricoh.

Options?

Hello Skipper,
If you're still having trouble finding the correct lens hood, how about a rubber collapsible type? I believe all the 18-55mm's use a 52mm filter, right?

Now, if you absolutely have to use the OEM petal-type hood, you can keep looking, but for $5.00, this will do the job just as well. Just retract it for W/A and pop it forward for normal FL and tele.
Just an idea for you, good luck!

It could be necessary for wide angle at 18mm a petal shape.

Thanks, that's probably it. Only difference is that mine lens is DA L and have the tiny red line instead green, but construction is same.

Most probably, PH-RBC is the one you need. But if you are not sure, you can buy both, because PH-RBA is under 3,60 euro, and sell the one you don't need.
