Offering flexibility in a compact package, the K-mount HD PENTAX DA 18-50mm f/4.0-5.6 DC WR RE Lens from Pentax features a retractable design which significantly shortens the lens when not in use, and has a versatile 35mm equivalent focal length of 27.5-76.5mm when used with APS-C cameras. The aperture is variable with a range of f/4.0-5.6 when wide open, and the lens utilizes aspherical lens elements to ensure edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the zoom range.

question

What type of lens hood work with this lens?
Asked by: Clemente T. S.
The included lens hood is very small so there's no need to reverse it or ever remove it. If you don't have the original hood, the lens has a 58mm thread so any 58mm lens hood can be attached. However, because it's a zoom if you use a generic hood it will be too long at the wide angle settings and too short at the telephoto settings.
