A 49mm rubber hood should work. I believe the original Pentax one is also made of rubber...

That one should work fine, fully extended. I have this lens. The hood I use is about 5cm deep with a 6.8cm diameter opening in the front. I know that size doesn't block the image corners at all.

If you are using the lens on APS-C the old metal hoods for 100/105 Takumars/Super Takumars work nicely.
