Just FYI,  you can use the bayonet type sunshade from the SEL24F18 lens (ALC-SH114) and the FE55 (ALC-SH-131) on the FE 35mm. I use the SH114 in preference to the supplied hood and cap. I bought an extra 49mm lens cap when using it. These hoods cannot be reversed on the FE35 when the lens is mounted as the lens is so short and the hood strikes the body.

Did the same thing with the RX-1 rather than use the very expensive optional sunshade for the RX-1. I saw no apparent vignetting using these hoods and the FE35 doesn't look so strange (to me).

Unfortunately my understanding is that the SH-114 (and probably the SH-131) are not available as a part or accessory.

I can also confirm that Sony T* 49mm UV filter works fine under the supplied hood and cap for the FE35.
