Why don't you try the original one - most traders of used gear have used
hoods in an extra box also. I remember, that there was a rather intelligent
reasoning for the construction of the original lens hood in "Leica
Fotografie" (late 60s). But, before you ask: sorry, I don't have the magazine

Besides, the contrast of both the 35 ASPH ('cron & 'lux) are rather strong,
compraed to the "old" 50 mm Summicron. The new 50 mm Summicron shows the
stronger contrast also, but looses a part of it's original bokeh by that (the
unsharp areas are too "blocky" with the impression of "unrestlessness").
