Bonjour Hans-Peter, Regarding the Summarit hood, besides the very expensive original, there is at least one inexpensive possibility. I did use it for a couple of years on a Summarit and it worked perfectly. If you go in a photo show, simply buy the metal and rubber hood made by Leitz for the Leicina cine-camera. I bought one used for about $ 4.00 and removed the rubber portion. Worked like a charm. You simply mount it on the lens after putting a very very small piece of scotch tape on the lens edge. Never had a problem with that. However please do not tell this to any dealer...they ll shortly be charging more...
