Not that I've seen. It would need to be a 48mm screw in wide angle hood.
You need the 12501 or the 12501M (for some reason the M version is a lot more expensive). They can sometimes be found for around $100 - but it would almost cheaper to buy another lens with the hood, then sell the lens.
Unfortunately they're all black (and big) too - it would mess with your chrome kit!
