If anyone buys this and wants an original hood let me know, inns been thinking about listing one with the original leather bag that doubles as a cover when the hood is mounted to the lens.

Please tell more about this... I already have this lens and hood set up, but my “Sweetheart” (Pentax-A* 85mm F1.4) would be interested to know more.

I don't own an A* lens anymore but I can mount it to my 50-135 and post a picture later. Essentially you slip the bag on the hood and draw it tight using it like a lens cap. I can't recall where I first saw that done but I personally preferred a black plastic Tupperware style end cap in 102mm.

Thanks would appreciate that, I have never seen an original Pentax leather version before.

Just a word of warning - I bought the same model lens from this same seller a few months back, and it's still sitting on my shelf due to an epoxied-in front group (due to a poorly done earlier repair) that I haven't managed to get out to fix some lens separation.
Wow!!!!!!

I do not see your feedback on ebay.
Share your experience with other people.
Please.
