I'm looking for a lens hood. It appears to be an internal screw lens mount. Where to buy?

Thanks, Tom W

Hi Tom,

Look at the first two links, on the F and FA versions, it says no hood required but also that the RH-RA52 clip-on hood is compatible with the FA. This is a short hood made of rubber.

In my opinion, the 50mm macro could hardly make use of a normal hood. When shooting at large distances the front element is shaded by the helicoid front. When shooting at close to 1:1, the front elements is almost exposed but the working distance is small. Maybe the short and flexible hood will work.

The D-FA version is using another hood, PH-RBC 49mm.
