Simon....
Lens hoods are designed to match the lens...Even though they are the same mm, they aren't made to interchange...Wide angle lenses need a wider opening with the hood or you will get serious black edges on your photo's...And with a hood made for the wide angle on a telephoto lens, you would get minimal lens flare protection...I am not sure if there are off brand hoods made for your lenses, I just buy the canon hoods for the canon lenses...
