    Pentax 67 40mm

    Recentley found and immediately bought.
    It seems less brilliant and maybe shady than 55 mm. I didn't found its hood which I'm still loking for and could this effect depend by this lack?

    None who sell a 67 4omm hood?

    Thanks,

    I believe the lens is 45mm f/4.0, right? Have you tried www.KEH.com for a hood? I have one and I use it all the time. It's my understanding that the 55mm is newer and perhaps a bit better than the 45mm lens. However, I have not found any faults with the 45mm lens. Ever. It is a fantastic lens. Examples in my Gruene, Texas gallery. The interior photos of Gruene Hall and Mr. Gruene's Office were all made with the 45mm lens.

    Someday perhaps I will find an affordable copy of the latest 55mm lens.

    Enjoy your lens. It is a keeper.

    The 45 mm is a great lens. You could just buy a cheap generic wide angle hood.

    Yes, sure, Venchka. It's a 45mm, of course

    No, never looked at site you say. Thanks for recommendation, I'm going to look for the hood there.

    Absolutely with you, Jerold. It's a great lens.

    No hood for 45mm Pentax to KEH.com.
    Any other suggestion, please? Where could I try?

    Thanks,
    Joseph

    Thanks Venchka, I saw it.
    I looked for it in Europe but it seems cheaper in USA and I pass to order it there.
    Thanks again

    A friend of mine bought a cheap, normal lens shade, then filed it down to a petal shape.

    Works fine, and with a little black marker pen, it looks like a bought one!
