Hood for 45-85mm FA Lens

Hi everyone,

New to this forum and hello to all. I am putting together some gear right now and will acquire the 645D soon. I have the 45-85mm FA Lens and would like to find a OEM hood. Any ideas who may have one?

If not, is there a good third party hood that will work here?

Welcome to the Pentax Forum.

You will have to check to see if they ship internationally.

If you watch eBay one might come up, that is where I got mine. I think I paid almost a third again as I originally paid for the lens though!

Otherwise this was the generic hood I ended up getting from B&H and it seemed to work fine. Definitely not as securely attached to the lens as the Pentax one though.

PS, a word to the wise: the original Pentax hood WILL vignette on the wide end of the lens if you mount it the wrong way. Be sure to line up the white dots. (I am sure you can guess how I know this...)
