Help! Lens hood

I lost my lens hood for my 45mm xPan camera! I owned this camera since 15 years or so. Did not know that this tiny piece of plastic is selling for $$$ now. Any alternative ideas? Anywhere I could find the original hood at a decent price? Please help!

just my thoughts, I don't have that camera:
I read that the 45mm xPan has a 49mm thread and has equivalent FOV of a 25mm on 35mm film.
But I also read that it doesn't need extra thin filters, that normal 49mm filter won't vignette.
Still I gues that a 'normal' rectuangular hood with 49mm thread might vignette, if so, how about first a step up ring to, say, 55 or 58mm + a fitting rectuangular hood from the bay? ( e.g. 58mm: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...+hood&_sacat=0 )

Tried various hoods myself. They either vignette or are too large for the camera. Ended with the original hood.

Wonder what his idea of a decent price was? The Xpan is an expensive camera, and the cost of the lens hood is similar to that from what Zeiss, Leica etc ask for their hoods.
Perhaps he bought that one I linked to (it has been sold)
