Afternoon All

I had a slight accident while on holiday in Iceland and the lens hood for my Samsung 12-24mm (essentially the same as the Pentax equivalent) fell off and was immediately blown over the edge of a cliff. Better than losing the entire lens, I suppose!

Anyway, I'm in the market for a replacement lens hood. The Pentax offical one is an eye-watering price for a piece of moulded plastic. Does anyone have any recommendations for me?

Incidentally, I performed an inadvertant cold conditions performance test of the K3. I can confirm it works perfectly well with a crust of ice over one side of the camera in sub zero conditions (estimate -9 C)
You will only prise my 43Ltd from my cold, dead hands...

If you check your EXIF data you'll find that the camera records its internal temperature.

19.59 from the link at Amazon.

They seem very affordable, so maybe no need to look further than SRS?
Best regards, John

Thanks guys - rapid responses and very helpful (I love this forum).

I thought I'd checked SRS and thought it was more expensive. Must be going mad...

I still think 19 is a bit steep (although the best price out there!) but I'm unlikely to find anything equivalent. Looks like I'll place an order this afternoon.

Manesty - very interesting! I'll check some of the images tonight. If nothing else it will give me a better idea of the temperature than I currently have. The -9 was from a roadside temperature sensor about 15 mins from where we were watching for the lights.
