Does this exist? (filter with hood bayonet exterior)

I want to put a decent hood on my old f/1.2 lens. I have a screw-in rubber one now, and that's not terrible, but I *thought* I saw this product somewhere rambling around the internet, and now I can't find it.. so maybe i just dreamed it.

Basically, I think it was a glassless filter ring with bayonet threads for a hood on the outside of itů so you could still attach filters and/or a cap on it. I don't think it came in every thread size, but I think 49-62mm were covered.

So -- does anyone know if this is real or if I was just having an oddly specific dream?

Do you mean the Matin "reversible" plastic hood?

Ah! I don't know if that was it (I seem to remember 2 or 3 hood options), but that's definitely the kind of thing I was looking for! Thanks!

I use the Matin hood on my F 35-70 lens. It works very well for me. For what it is worth, I rarely use any filter other than a CPL, And with the Matin hood, I find it easier to remove the bayonet ring and put the CPL directly on the lens and the bayonet ring on the CPL. This is because the Matin hood doesn't have a removable window for turning the filter inside the hood. And putting the CPL between the lens and the bayonet ring allows me to rotate the CPL especially easily by just turning the entire hood.
