I wonder if the 135 Takumar hood would restrict it ?
can't try as i lent the K50/1.2 out
Pete
The S.T. and S-M-C 135mm f3.5 take 49mm threads. The f2.5 models of the 135 Taks take 58mm threads.

Yeah, Blue. I bet you can safely go significantly deeper with a Nikon style hood, too (Gotta give em props for those: they're a nice style, especially if you like to stand your lenses on em.)

For what it's worth, my old Canon FD 1.2 pretty happily wears a hood that's about an inch and an eighth deep and about 2 and a half in diameter at the front (For film, of course, thus full-frame) It's not as tight as distudio's, (actually it looks pretty darn close to Canon's stock hood for these, if you know what those look like.) I'd guess that kind of ballpark would be OK for you there.

Nice one Blue,
isn't HN-3 for 35mm lens on FF though????
I was using it on my K24/2.8 on K10D (worked great even with CPL)
For the 50 I'd recommend you HN-1 (designed for 50/1.4) as seen here:

Axl, it is for the 35mm. Its also for one of the 35-something zooms. I have another lens I'm going to use it on. I have an HS-7 on the way for the f1.2 lens! However, I also use this A lens on my SuperProgram. I just liked that darn hood though.

Edit: Is that the HN-1 or the HS-1? The HN-1 & 2 are shorter than the HN-3.

Edit: Edit: The interesting thing about the HN-3 is that it is 22mm long and tapered opening up to ~ 74mm. The OEM hood for the FA 50mm f1.4 (and the other 50s) is 24mm long with straight sides that opens up to ~ 65mm. That hood was designed for the use of those lenses on film.

Well at least for some hoods . . .
HAHA! you got me ...
I bought into Nikon a few months back, but I didn't switch.
TBH, I'm not sure I can afford to build a Nikon Kit and so I might actually put it up for sale at the end of the summer.

That's the Optech system. I have the wrist strap as sell as the web harness. Adorama and BH carry the Optech line. There is a plethora of options. That's the wrist strap that is on it in the pics.
I'm a big hood person myself, which is what brought me to this thread, but I also love the Op-Tech strap system. I use the "Pro Loop" model, becuase it automatically makes me a professional because of the name -- just kidding. I use it because it's a wide off-set strap that helps a lot with fatigue on the neck or even the shoulder when carrying heavier gear. I really like the quick release clasps being opposite gender so that when you remove the strap you can join the two quick release pieces on the camera together to form a smaller strap.

I'm thinking about switching to Nikon or Canon myself.....for a hotshoe cover. I lost the OEM one at my children's graduation, and will likely just be picking up the cheapest one that's readily available on eBay (which will more than likely be Canon or especially Nikon).

I got from KEH a HS-7 for the 58mm f1.2 Noct. and the HN-22 for the 35-70mm f3.5 S zoom and 60mm micro Nikkor. I got the HN-22 to go on my Auto Tak 35mm f2.3 because of the 62mm filter threads. Shipping cost almost as much as the shades!

I have just switched to Minolta



On the hood is also printed that it belonged to a MC 135mm F3.5

As far as i can see right now, there is no vignetting thanks to the cropfactor.
