    Does anyone know where I can get a cheap OEM-like lens hood for the CZ 24mm?
    I'm really not trying to spend over $100 on a piece of plastic from Sony.

    Ebay.

    Just find the thread size and you will find hundreds.

    49mm ... one of those collapsible rubber hoods might just be the ticket.

    What do you mean by cheap plastic ?

    This is a very high tech hood made of advanced composite polymers for the mount and extra light aluminum alloy fused together by advanced bonding techniques.

    Mine actually separated and i had to glue it back together

    This is the price to pay for a big Z item

    I'm looking for the OEM style hood. I dislike the universal screw on ones.

    This makes me sad :(

    How did it separate?

    I've seen this. I purchased a used 24 and the hood that came with it, the aluminum and plastic petals were taped together and not aligned so the logo was about 32 degrees rotated off mark.

    My SEL24F18Z hood separated almost immediately too. Regular crazy glue isn't effective on that kind of plastic, but the kind that has a separate tube of stuff you pretreat the surfaces with works great and mines been fine since.
