Lens hood for a Pentax FA 50mm 1.4?

What kind of lens hood are you guys on your 50mm 1.4? Any reccomendations before I walk down to B&H or Adorama?
Thanks so much in advance!

I am using a collapsable rubber lens hood that I bought in the early 1970's for my Fujinon 55mm f1.8. It is a 49mm hood and works well. You will notice on B&H - at least the last time I was there - that they will sell you the metal lens hood. If I were to go out and buy another one - that is the one I would get. With the crop factor of a DSLR almost anything would work OK.

Get yourself a B&W 49mm standard metal filter and then use a 58mm lens cap to put on the front of the lens hood itself. This way you dont have to dig down into the hood to get at the lens cap on the lens itself. The ribs on the lens hood keepo the lens cap firmly in place.

Works like a charm. I am not a big fan of rubber hoods and this gives great impact protection.

Here are some photos:

Any 49mm standard lens hood (hard or soft) will do the job.
