    I'm having trouble finding an original hood
    for my screwmount Tak 50/1.4. Does anyone have
    experience using the square hood designed for
    the Tak 28/3.5 with this lens ? Comments appreciated.

    Was there ever an official hood for that lens?

  3. The round plastic screw-in hood on my Pentax 50mm f1.4 M lens is
    marked "STANDARD LENS 1:1.4-1.7-2 50mm" That should work nicely for
    you. One of the best bargains in a rectangular 49mm hood is the metal
    one made by Pentacon. You can pick these up for around $10 on eBay.
    These are well-finished and strongly-made.

    Yes, they did make a metal, rectangular lens hood, and they still make a
    round plastic one.

    I had the metal square one, but I misplaced it, and I was able to procure a
    plastic round one by Pentax via eBay.

    You can pick up a nice metal round hood from this link:
