Mitakon 65mm 1.4 Lens Hood Issue

Just received the Mitakon 65mm 1.4 today (couldn't pass up the sale price).  Have not had a chance to take it out, but am having an issue with the lens hood.  Was wondering if anyone here has this lens and has had the same issue.  After I put on a UV filter, I could not attach the lens hood to the lens.  The filter was blocking it.  Further, what also surprised me is that the lens hood screws on, and is not a sliding lens hood that is built into the lens design, of which I was under the impression it was a sliding lens hood. If I take the filter off, the lens hood screws quite nicely onto the lens.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Otherwise lens seems to be built like a tank, a bit heavy, but not too cumbersome.  Very smooth focusing ring.  It pairs well with the GFX100.
