Is there hoods available for the DA-L lenses. SRS only do one for DA lens, will these fit?

Yes, but there are cheaper alternatives, see this thread.

But check what they say on the hood as a manufacturer's name though. Some of these hoods have shall we say 'euphemistic' manufacturer's names. Not uncommon in Chinese knockoffs.

The hood for the new 18-55mm WR lens won't fit.

As said above, have a look on ebay. You can get something which fits pretty well (doesn't rattle or feel as though it'll fall off) for about 10. Just make sure it uses the bayonet fitting rather than screwing into the filter ring.

I have that 55-300 hood and the 18-55 version, can vouch for both, feel sturdy and don't rattle or move when on the bayonet fitting.

They can be reverse mounted too which is useful for space saving.
