I started looking for a 28mm rubber lens hood and they seem to be somewhat rare. I don't even see one listed at Nikonmall.com or B&H or on Ebay. Are there any well known sources? Thanks.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no 28mm lens hood because the 9xx/4500 lens is deeply reaccessed that does not really need a lens hood. If you are lucky, you may find some 37mm lens hood. Or, if you have some step-up rings, you can stack them together to form a cheap but effective lens hood. The Lens Hood page of my 9xx/4500 user guide has more details.

Yes I saw your suggestion about using step up rings on your webpageand that might be an option. I just ordered a 28mm - 52mm ring.

I did find a $16 "28mm Digital Guardian UV Protector with Hood" here...

However I don't really want a UV filter...
