[SOLD] Lens hood (MH-RBC67) for Pentax FA*300/4.5

Have spent quite some time finding this hood for my FA*300/4.5 lens, but unfortunately it doesn't fit my lens Seems there are two versions of FA*300/4.5, the earlier one has three teeth on the lens to clip on its matching hood, while the later version has four teeth. Mine is the earlier version while the hood I got is for the later version.

Tried to do some DIY (by adding some extra teeth on the lens at proper position to match the hood), but just noticed that not only the teeth locations don't match, the thickness doesn't match the hood either. The existing teeth on my lens are much thicker than the one on the later newer version (confirmed by another forum member: Lance B, who has the later FA*300/4.5).


After all the hustle, I decide to let this one go, and will continue to search for another one.

I bought the hood new from Japan, spent about $120 shipped to Singapore. Now I'm willing to let it go for $100 which including air shipping to anywhere around the world. The hood still looks like new except some sign of use on the internal teeth.

If you have an FA*300/4.5 w/o a hood, and if it happens to be the newer version (with four teeth on the lens to match a hood, this will be the one for you.

If interested, please let me know. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Hello Frank!

I have a hood on my FA*300 but it doesn't fit nicely anymore. Some of the wheels in it are slightly damaged, so it comes off too easily... I'm not at home right now, but I'll check which version my lens is... I might be interested.

Can you tell your hood won't have the same problem? Are all the little wheels intact?

Hi Wim,

I bought the hood brand new from Japan, cost me over $120. I tried to mount it on my lens several times, so there are some sign of use on those small wheels. they are definitely in good condition. If it works on your lens, I don't know. I don't have another FA300 to test out If not working, you can send it back, and return shipping is on me
