Pentax K-x kit lens hood

I just bought a Pentax K-x, and the kit lens doesn't come with a hood. I'd like to buy a bayonet hood, so I can keep my threads for filter. Other than the Pentax model, for $35.00, is there a after market brand that is recommended?

I have the 18-55mm lens

Any screw on shade with a 52mm thread should work. There was also one on fleabay that was the petal shape. But the kit lens uses a different bayonet mount than the upgrade 18-55 WR, which comes with a shade. It wasn't intuitively obvious which mount the fleabay model was designed to fit.

You could probably buy the AL I version of the kit lens for $50 and sell the lens without hood for $40.

$15 for a knock-off version.
