Did it screw in or just bayonet on?

the official one for SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 is

Hood
RH-RA52



SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 Reviews - DA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

it appears to be a screw on full circle rubber hood

I've been very pleased with the rubber screw-on hood I purchased for mine. It's the JJC version off of Amazon, I believe:

Why a tulip hood? They are a compromise at best for zoom lenses...Any generic hood with a 52mm thread will be better...I prefer metal hoods to the rubber ones, but YMMV.

If you need reversible, look at the old Nikon 52mm metal hoods that clip on. Those with a 49 to 52 step up ring should work. The original fit would be the HS-11 or HS-6. You could probably go narrower in crop but I'm not sure what would work.

I should be able to try one if these on my F 50 f1.7 if that helps.
