Sigma 50-500 after market lens hood

Somewhere in the forum a member posted about use of a 3rd party, 95 mm lens hood for their Sigma 50-500 lens. Doing multiple searches has not turned up the post.

So - does anyone use a 3rd party (not tulip shaped) lens hood on the newer Bigma. Sigma 50-500mm F/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM. Again - 95 mm thread size.

Something like this Genuine Sigma APS-C Hood Adapter HA 1030-01 For 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG APO OS HSM | eBay There are a bunch of them on eBay.

The Hood adapter is only when the Bigma is used on an APS-C crop factor DSLR. So you would use this for any camera other than a K-1. With the K-1, you don't want the adapter.

So the answer is, FF like the K-1 can use a lens hood that is 95mm and attaches just like a filter. Those that have an APS-C body should try and pick up one of the used hood adapters.

Thank you. I know I don't want an adapter, but rather a hood that screws in like a filter. So I am thinking the following would be what I am looking for:
