EDIT: Found a model# ALC-SH114. Can anyone confirm that it's orderable through Sony?

Apparently the stock number you found is the Zeiss stock number. I found a reference to the Sony internal stock number which is claimed to be 429139201.

Good Luck!

Sorry for the stupid question, but is this orderable through their website? Or do I have to call on the phone? Somehow my hood came apart. It's almost like the outer hood was just glued onto the mounting bracket.

It was! Mine also fell apart last week. I assume they will replace it under guarantee? Or I might just stick it back on. They should have made it one piece in good quality plastic.

I think there was an earlier thread about this.

Hey guys some good and bad news!

Good news: The hood is available through Sony directly and is in stock if you want to order.

Here is the website for Sony Parts and Accessories, click camera accessories, then search for part# 429139201 in the text box on the top right of the screen. The product page references ALC-SH114.

Bad news: The hood costs $131.60 Ouch.

What kind of glue did you end up using? Any ill effects to the plastic of the hood or finish of the lens?

BTW, Big ups to B&H. I received a 9+ rated used Zeiss and it was exactly as described, mint condition and came with all the original packaging/case/paperwork - except they sent me the incorrect hood. Everything was straightened out within 24 hours of me receiving the lens. Replacement hood has been ordered through Sony (B&H does not stock this particular item) and B&H kindly refunded me the difference.

I can't wait to give this lens a go soon!

But have they redesigned it? They can't seriously be selling the two part lens hood that falls apart after 3 months for that price. I had only used my lens three times when the band fell off.
