Would this work on the non-HSM version (sorry to hijack the thread).

If it has to be a bayonet version, that's what I linked to at a very reasonable price. Give free postage is included it's at virtually zero cost. Why would the lens focus method be an issue (unless the part the hood bayonets onto rotates of course?)

Not sure - I think the body is the same for both versions. I will buy one anyway. Thank you for the link.

I recently bought a 62mm version of these for a Sigma 28-105 UCIII lens.
Whilst it is an elegant design and the concept works well, in practice the quality of manufacture makes it unusable !
The plastic threads on the adaptor ring are undersize and the internal threads on the locking ring are large which means it is impossible to lock the adaptor in place as the ring just jumps over the threads.
I contacted the supplier and they sent me a rubber hood (with a metal screw thread) as replacement.
I may have just been unlucky - but be aware !

Meanwhile, if anyone does have a spare old Sigma 62mm bayonet fitting lens hood please let me know !

Do you have a local second hand camera dealer near you? They might have one in their 'odds and sods junk' box!

A good tip, John, many thanks.
Only problem is that nowadays those shops are even rarer than Sigma lens hoods !

Best regards
