Pentax DA 12-24 - why yo hood all up in my shot

.....
I nearly died when I looked down at the LCD on my camera and saw this. Taken from my recently eBay purchased DA 12-24. I thought maybe the elements were totally out of alignment or something and I was seeing the resulting CA.

Turns out that it was just my lens hood sticking out in front of the lens.
"Just" my lens hood.... relativity is a funny thing - for now.

I just have no idea if this is a manufacturing defect or just a long hot day in someone's car deforming the plastic? The hood doesn't look deformed to my eye and seems to roll true without undue deviation. Of course the cause might be something more complicated and sinister in it's prognosis, but I don't see any other indications that the lens has be has been compromised.. Has anyone else come across anything similar with other copies of this lens?

.....

I was just starting to have some fun with this lens too.

Looks like someone found the wrong lens hood for this lens. Both DA 12-24 and DA*16-50 lenses share similar looks on the lens hood, but actually with different part no. PH-RBI (12-24) and PH-RBJ (16-50).

Just what I was going to say. I've put the 16-50 hood on by accident, easy to do.
