    The first one might be too narrow for a wide angle, hard to tell from picture. With its small lens size, I would prefer the folding rubber type GFFPhotos has.

    IMO, the lens is not that expensive to justify adding bulk to it for protection. Besides, it's incredibly flare resistant so I doubt the hood will do much good.

    I'd use a UV filter with the glass removed to keep it small. Like a stand off ring.

    I bought some of those vented lens hoods off ebay.


    I'll be completely frank, I only did so because I saw a photo someone posted here on the forums and I thought it looked cool. I've gotten more than a few comments specifically about the lens hood while walking around town shooting (solidifying my street cred) so I guess the $2.50 I spent has paid itself off :wink:
