I just received a supercool lens for my Pentax: the Variozenitar 2.8-3.5 25-45mm Happy Dog

However, since the lens has no filter thread, what lens hood do you use on your copy? Google wasn't very helpful with this....

Thanks!

is it missing some parts or is it some other version?

It's that one. It doesn't seem to be missing parts, but I think the clip-on filters with the lens were a hint: I should look for a clip-on hood, as the lens has no filter thread.

The front element is very exposed, and I would feel more comfortable with a hood for protection Smile It's a pretty rare lens, and in nice condition at that.
