Brand of bayonet lens hood compatible with Pentax? (16-85mm/72mm especially)

SOLUTION

- EW78D lens bayonet for Canon on eBay, obviously not made by Canon as the price was very low.

- Fits almost perfectly, a little loose, so I've added a 3-4mm wide band of gaffer tape around the small clip inside to increase the resistance against the lens . Took 60 seconds.

- Some interference with field of view at 16mm-24mm end, so I will have to trim ends off.


See attached photos in case you're not sure what I mean.

Thanks for all the suggestions.


Aussie dollar is close an all-time low. Which means over $70 for a genuine part. (Can't see the value.)


I'll try an el cheapo and surgery.



PS the Pentax 16-85 lens rocks

I dropped the lens hood for my brilliant 16-85 Pentax lens on the beach. A new one is about $75 AUS.

Has anybody replaced theirs with something else?

I'm seeing lots of 72mm generic replacement for canon etc on eBay, but none mention Pentax.

Is this a lucky dip?

Thanks.
