[SOLD] FREE Pentax original PH-RGB hood for 55-300 DA lens Marketplace Listing

FREE Pentax original PH-RGB hood for 55-300 DA lens

Item Description
I've noticed many owners of the Pentax 55-300 L lens complaining about the absence of a hood, & the fact that Pentax is charging the outrageous price of $63.95 to purchase one.
I purchased a used 55-300 on Ebay a few days ago. The original hood it came with ( PH-RGB 58mm) is cracked in one place at it's inner base. The previous owner repaired it with glue. That little section doesn't look pretty, but mounts on the lens in stowaway & ready positions without a hitch. When mounted in photo ready position, the repaired section is hidden from view. The rest of the hood is perfect. I never use plastic hoods on my lenses, preferring the rubber folding types. Consequently, this hood will just be sitting around unused in my possession..... better someone on this forum who needs one should have it. If you want this hood, and are willing to place the actual shipping & paypal fees into my PayPal account, I'll send it to you.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Hmmm..somebody beat me to it!
I was thinking of probably using it on my FA-75-300mm.
Second in line if he changes his mind.
