    Lens hood for Mamiya-Sekor TLR 80mm f2.8....

    I checked over Ebay as well as Keh. They are a bit pricey. I don't need a metal one. Plastic one is fine. Are there cheaper alternatives??? Thanks...

    The problem of using any other one is that it can obscure the viewfinder through the viewing lens. It's more than twenty years since Mamiya TLR stuff was manufactured and these items are becoming rare.
    Sometimes if you really need the equipment you have to bite the bullet and pay the going price.

    I have been looking over at Ebay. I would consider $47 to $50 pricey. Keh has one at BG condition for $27.

    Also, I just bought the 80mm lens off Ebay from Keh for $90. For me to pay $50 for a hood is a bit.....pricey...

    I have used a metal 46mm screw in lens hood. I think the brand was Kalt. It worked fine, no vignette.

    Be sure you know if the one you're buying is for the Chrome or the Black lens. The size changed!
