Lost lens hood

The lens hood belonging to my Sigma 17-70 mm. has gone missing. It had been cracked and insecure for a while and it has now fallen off and been lost. Does anyone know whether it is possible to buy a replacement?

I feel your pain having lost two,one blew off the deck of a boat off St Lucia, the other anybody's guess. Smile You can get a replacement from Sigma UK for about twenty quid plus postage.

Or, check out JJC lens hoods web site. They are generic hoods made in China but just as good for a 1/3 of the price. I have several after losing or breaking the originals.

Think about replacing it with a screw - rather than bayonet - type. Around 3 including postage from China/HK on eBay. Not only less expensive but also less likely to fall off and get lost.
