Hi joelw135,

Give ebay a try. I wouldn't buy optics from them but I got my lens hood there.

Here are a couple of links to online photo gear sites, I've used both and have been satisfied.

Thanks I tried both with no luck. They list the shade but without thread size. So unless I call and ask for every one that is not listed with the size I am out of luck. I found one on Ebay but it is in China. Not so sure I want to order from there.

Depending on your camera brand, you may have to buy a lens adapter. Check your camera manufactures web site, they may have one.

I wouldn't buy from China either. Nice thing about ebay is that camera gear is added all the time so over a few days time you should find something.

Good Luck

The various camera lens/accessory companies all make lens hoods, but the petal types are usually meant for specific focal lengths, so you might not find a generic one that works with the zoom range of your camera; Sigma has several petal-type hoods in their catalog, so you might try them.

Ultimately, tho, I assume you're looking for one for a specific camera/lens; if so, then you might have to go back to the manufacturer and order from them.

Found one at www.camerafilters.com, the price was great including shipping. $7.96 is a great price shipped. This one should also use my clip on lens cover. My only wish was that the shade was clip on. I had a clip on shade for my 35mm SLR which when not used went on in reverse on the lens. Made it handy at all times.

From what I saw on PBS a few weeks ago, everything you buy at Wal-Mart is from China. Proud to be made in the USA, yeah...right!
