    Quick question. I currently have the HR-2 lens hood for my 50mm 1.4. I would much prefer a plastic, barrel type screw on hood. Any suggestions and where to find one?

    Thanks!

    I'm using the HN-2 metal screw in hood that the 35/2 uses for my 50/1.8

    i use a hn-2 metal screw on. found it on ebay 2 yrs ago for $10. destined for like an 85mm f2.
     
  4. Another vote for metal screw-in hoods. Rubber might work in terms of controlling flare but offers no protection. Plastic is only a little better. I really like the metal hoods.
