    The simple solution would be to use a crazy long deep hood.
    I usually use a 46-52 step up, then a Nikon HS-1 (for 50mm Ai ) or even an HN-7 (85mm 1.8) for the Mamiya 80mm. I have a very long narrow Nikon HS type hood for the 105mm 2.5/ 135mm 3.5, I'll try that and see if it 'clips the corners'.
    Its 2 inches long and 2.75 across, probably Much larger than the stock Mamiya hood.

    Sorry, that was an HS-9, for a 50mm 1.4 Nikkor.

    I did test the longer hood, that looks to be the HS-4, and by the viewing lens on the 80mm, it does not vingette the corners. I'll do an on film test, I have a 'dropped optic' to re-test.
    There is also a Hoya square hood option that I plan to investigate as well.

    I use Mamiya TLR's and although I don't have the 105 DS lens, in the situations you describe I shield the lens with my cap.

    Here I have an example:

    As you can see the sun is quite high above. These reflections were not visible in the finder, the hood was on the lens. A perfect photo, perfectly ruined...

    I know the trick with the cap, but I don't like to carry a tripod to be able to control the effect of such a 'lens hood'.
