Pentax DA 35mm AL 2.8 ?
5 months ago

I looked at this lens on Amazon and they have it new for $139.95 shipped. Best price I 've seen. It does not say anything about caps and hood so I assume it does not come with them. How much would it cost to purchase both?

Thanks, Tom W(ret)

35 2.4 comes with cap but no hood.

A 49mm screw-in rubber hood for full frame 50mm lenses works well with the Pentax 35 f2.4. I use one myself.

Wow that is a great deal for the DA35 f2.4! Anyway I bought some non-Pentax metal screw type hoods at Amazon before for my SMC-M and SMC-A lenses and is also quite good too.

There is no such thing a "Pro" level gear, just Pro level work.

The lens comes with caps but you'll need a hood. You can find hood prices at Amazon, eBay, B&H Photo, Adorama, etc. I've had a rubber hood for several years, but the rubber is deteriorating so lately I've been using the hood from my DA 70 on my DA 35.

Thanks to all, it looks like a 49mm screw on hood is the one.
