        The two hoods I have for my lens, which is

 12504 (the round, metal, vented one) There is no vignetting, but it takes a
good chunk out of the viewfinder.

12524, a small rectangular plastic thing that doesn't obstruct the viewfinder.
This one tends to be the choice of regular or pro users and is certainly my
first choice.
