Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 R WR (i.e. MkII) Lens Hood

I love this lens but....the supplied lens hood is collossal, almost doubling the size of an already big lens.

I'm sure it's great, etc., etc., but I'm looking for a more discrete alternative. My problem is that this lens seem to have a unique, or new, at least, bayonet mount compared to other Fuji lenses. It's nice an secure but I cannot fit other Fuji lens hoods. Alert for possible user error.

With the MkI 56mm f/1.2 I could use a square metal hood designed for the (I think) 23mm f/1.4, which was a nice package. I know it's not engineered to be as effective, but...

The new 56mm has a bayonet with a 67mm filter thread equivalent. I tried the square metal hood from the 16mm f/1.4, which has a 67mm thread. The fit is tantalisingly close but it won't quite go on.

Does anyone know if any of the other newer Fuji lenses have a) a similar thread size and b) similar bayonet locking mechanism and, therefore, a compatible square metal lens hood?

First world problem, I know, but a more discrete lens hood would round off the near-perfect package
