62mm Bayonet Lens Hood - Reversible?

I recently purchased an 18-135mm WR and it did not come with a lens hood...

I would really like one that's reversible and bayonet style? (the kind that won't need to be screwed into threads each time...)


I'm very new to this whole DSLR world so any help would be greatly appreciated!
I know it's 62mm, but can I just buy any generic one?
Does it need to be pentax?


If anyone here has a link or better yet an extra hood that would work, PM me!


Thanks

I am of the impression that the Pentax one will have best shape for the lens. Other bayonett hoods may be too short or long or be round.

I saw... That seems pricey for a Lens Hood...

I have that lens and I would be happy to measure the length of the various parts to help you pick a 3rd party one that is close. Better to be slightly too short than long...
