Hi,
found this wonderful zoom on eBay for 80€, but would like a hood for it!!
Does anybody know which one fits? Or does any with a 49mm thread work?

Thanks, John
Best regards
John

I would suggest the Hoya multihood - it can be used over a number of focal lengths. These I think are discountinued but easy to find on the auction sites.

The correct hood is Pentax RH-RB49 which is a collapsible rubber screw-on one, they occasionally appear on eBay.

For a zoom lens, the hood only works properly at the widest angle. At other focal lengths it is not as tight. I just use whatever hood I have to hand that doesn't cause vignetting on 70mm.

Super lens, BTW.
