    Hi all,
    I am looking desparately for a lens hood for my sigma 30 lens. I do not want to go to the convertible rubberish ones but find one plastic that is built for this lens specifically.
    Have you found one on ebay? all my current search attempts have considerably failed.
    Regards
    Alex

    I use one of those vented metal hoods (eBay), doesn't cost much and does the job.

    You can look up for vented 46mm metal lens hood on ebay. Plenty to choose from and you can either have 55mm lens cap or a 46mm center pinch cap for the front cover.

    vented hood item sample from US seller

    sample of 55mm hood cap

    Or look for a good '46mm Center Pinch Snap on' cap to place inside the hood. The above are given as sample, please use your best judgement for vendor and actual items.

    Cheers,
    Hin

    I know the newer style has one that came with it that bayonets on, is this not the case with the original design? I have had both but I don't use a shade too often so didn't think to look.
