Re: happened to me

To be honest, do you even need it?   Can you still attach the hood?   That would be more useful than filters most of the time.  Though that lens has pretty good flare control.  (I have two of them around here somewhere.)

I'm surprised parts are that hard to find for that lens.  It had a pretty big production run.

Screws are screws.  As long as the holes aren't stripped, it's a matter of finding an acceptable replacement.   Take it to a jewelry store that replaces watch batteries and see if they have an idea for replacement screws that fit.
