Re: Beginner has lens hood question

The hood you linked to on eBay is a "universal" hood - it screws onto the lens thread like a filter would.  It will work fine.  I prefer a hood that mounts to the hood mount, not the lens threads and it's for two reasons: 1) I can mount the hood backwards on the lens when not in use so it won't take up the extra space it would with a mounted hood, and 2) the hood will attach easier and quicker when it attaches to the proper hood mount.  This is the hood I would buy (it is from China, though):
