Lens hood for 75-300 FA-J?

Hey all,

My backup telephoto is a 75-300 FA-J. In the lens database, it states that the lens hood is a PH-RBF 58mm. However, eBay does not have this hood available, within my price range or without.

Are there any feasible replacements/ substitutes up for suggestion?

Thanks in advance,

I'd expect a generic rubber hood to do just fine, especially on APS-C.

Something like this:
Neewer® 58MM 3-in-1 Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood for Camera Lens with 58MM Filter Thread, such as CANON Rebel T5i T4i T3i T2i XT XSi, CANON EOS 700D 650D 550D 400D 350D 300D 100D 60D and More: Camera & Photo

Various European vendors have this hood if you are willing to pay postage.

It appears that a generic 58mm screw-on hood may work just as well. Adorama has a rather nice B+W hood on sale for about what a Pentax hood would cost:

Or if one wishes to go dirt cheap, I have been a long-time customer of heavystar on eBay. He should do some work on his product photography, but I have found his quality to be excellent.
