Mamiya Press Hood

Can anyone please advise me where I may obtain an original lens hood for my Mamiya Press 65mm lens.


Cheers
Peter

The hood for the Mamiya Press 65mm lens is very rare. It took me a couple of years of looking on eBay before I found a copy. Best of luck!

You might want to try a rubber screw-on hood. I don't recall ever trying to use one, but probably missed some shots from fear of flare. The lens is slightly recessed which helps.

Good luck on finding a Mamiya lens hood. As dinis77 said, they are pretty rare.

I bought a step up ring to 49mm, now I can use my Pentax filters and use my Pentax 28mm lens hood.

Thanks for the replies.
The step up ring sounds like a good idea.
This would also make finding filters easier as I have a terrible time finding 43mm filters.


Cheers
