Lens hood for 28mm f/3.5 (K version)

I recently purchased a cheap screw-on lens hood for my K 28mm f/3.5 (great lens) on my MX, and I noticed very heavy vignetting when I got my negatives back. After doing some research, I've found that the PH-S52 is the correct lens hood for this particular version of the 28mm. However, it seems to be on the rare side as far as finding them on eBay or anywhere else online for that matter.

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the Haoge or something more generic. I'm not sure if this particular lens needs a clip-on because of how wide it is, or if a screw-in would work. I have a Haoge for my Olympes Pen FT, and it works really great with the 38mm with no vignetting.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Any wide angle generic hood will work.

The original is a clip on rectangular plastic hood. I bet a 52mm "tulip" lens hood will work. sensei 52mm screw-on tulip lens hood | B&H Photo Video

This ^ ^ ^. I have had good results with both simple round metal (heavystar on eBay) and flared (Sensei) round metal with 28mm lenses on my film cameras.

On my Pentax A-28mm f:2.8, I just use one of those cheap, collapsible, 49mm, screw in rubber lens hood. Just collapse it down enough to where it's doesn't cause a problem. About $5 USD.

The old Nikon 52mm hoods for 28mm lenses should also work, and those seem to be much more common, though probably not any cheaper than the new generic ones...
