Newbie needs a Sigma 28-80mm Lens Hood.

Hi everyone, just bought a secondhand Sigma 28-80mm lens.
Cannot find where I can buy a lens hood for this item, can find 55mm screw type.
But I see a bayonet fitting on lens, and cannot use a petal type as barrel rotates.
Thanks for any help.

If you can't see any on eBay or anything, then contact Sigma directly they should be able to supply you with one. I gave them a call when I lost the hood for an old wide angle lens I've got and they were pretty helpful and quick.

Some templates here you could have a go at making one, its says card but you could try other materials.

Thanks for comments am going to contact sigma, but found a rubber 55mm screw type on eBay which I think will do the job for now.
Merry Christmas to all.
