Quick question re the DA*55mm-- do I want to order a lens hood?

Just put a DA*55mm in a shopping cart over at B&H.  Yes, I have made up my mind-- the thought of the big 55 new at the price of a refurb was just too tempting.

What do those of you who are shooting with this lens think of the hood that comes with it?  B&H are suggesting a Vello snap on tulip hood for it.  I know that the Pentax hood is fairly large.  Any thoughts on the subject?

I will wait awhile to give myself a chance to talk myself out of it ...
