I recently acquired a used Minolta 28mm f/2 lens. I haven't seen it yet as it is still in transit. The bad news is that it is missing the hood. Obviously I will be trolling the usual places to try and find the proper hood. What I'm wondering, as an interim measure, would a hood from another lens fit? For example, the Minolta 28-80mm is listed as having the same 55mm filter diameter and a flower style bayonet mount hood.

If anyone here has these lenses and can offer an opinion whether this would work I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks,

Unfortunately the 28mm/f2 has a lens hood with a very special bayonet mount, which seems to be hard to get these days. Thus the lens hoods from the beer can series do not fit, though the 28/f2 was released nearly at the same time.

I have the original-style 28/2 and have found that, when used on the 5D/7D [with crop factor - so 42mm equiv], the Min 75-300D ["kit"] circular lenshood fits & doesn't seem to vignette...but I'm not sure if this fitting holds true for later 28/2 models...
