Lens Hood Alternatives for PL25

Hi,

I just received my PL 25 yesterday and the first thing I noticed was, the lens is much bigger than I had envisioned. The next thing that I noticed is the lens hood is huge... Coming from Pentax DA Limited lens, I was in for a little shock. It's the first lens that I've received for the mFT. I'm still waiting for the camera, E-M5, so I'm focusing on things like the lens hood

Anyway, are the any lens hood alternatives that is smaller than the stock hood? The pentax hoods are screwed on, but they are very small. For example, the 21mm lens hood is less than 10mm thick. And they have great flare control.

Thanks.
