cost of bayonet-mount hood for RX1
Mar 22, 2013

Is there any reason, besides supply/demand, that a bayonet-mount hood (JJC, SONY) would be more expensive than a threaded hood (that can be found for $6)?  Could it be that those $6 hoods are generic and fit any 35mm lens and had been already designed/made, whereas the the JJC is specific to the RX1?

I do not want, and will not purchase, a thread mounted hood, but $70 is crazy for a machined piece of Al and $170 is f***ing nuts.  I will keep waiting.....
