I haven't used mine for a while but I think I got it from KEH...they have one listed as I'm writing. The one you want is the round hood with series 6 clamp adapter.
Another option is to use a step-up ring with a vented screw-in hood. This is what I use on my Canon 50/1.5.

I also just got the LTM canon 50 1.8. I purchased a 40.5mm step-up ring. This makes it MUCH easier to find hoods and filters for the lens. Amazon and B&H have dozens of nice metal hoods for cheap.

I have the correct Canon metal hood but it is a screw clam-on design. I'm always afraid that it will drop off when I'm carrying it, so I bought a step-up ring to 43mm (same as some of my other lenses) and use a screw-in collapsible rubber hood. With filter, step-up ring and metal hood, it becomes much longer, which I don't like.

eBay:

But both of those prices are a bit high. With a bit of patience, these turn up regularly.

Alternatively, a 40mm-40.5mm step up ring plus a generic 40.5mm screw-in hood does the trick.

The correct hood is marked "Canon S-42", and is a clamp-on hood. These generally aren't hard to find, but a few Leica shooters use them on their Summitar lenses, which the S-42 hood also fits.

Thanks to all... I think I'll go with the step up ring to 40.5mm with suitable hood. Trying not to spend too much more. Found the lens at Cameta Camera, they have a nice selection of
Leica goodies... M's, SM bodies & lenses... Great prices too. I'm using the Canon on a IIIf, amazing lens.

I do pretty much the same thing. I've purchased several 40-43mm step up rings from Heavystar, and some generic 43mm hoods. They work great, and are cheap. I have the clamp-on hood as well, but I hardly ever use it.

Quite by accident I found this hood. It is a 42mm clamp fit designed for a Canon EE SLR camera lens. But it works perfectly on the Canon LTM 50mm f1.8 and looks good too.

No problems. There is another one too which has a funnel shape rather than parallel sides and it works well too. Both strongly made from metal and nice appearance.

I recently purchased a 40-40.5mm step-up ring and hood from heavystar to use on my Canon LTM 50/1.8, and my roll back last week had some vignetting. I wasn't expecting it, so I didn't take notes while shooting of what apertures I used or other things like that. But the corners definitely showed vignetting on some shots. I'm shooting another roll now to be sure, but I have a feeling that even on a 50mm lens, the step-up ring and (vented and tilted) hood stick out too far. Oddly, on my 40mm lens I have a filter, step-up ring, and hood, and I get no vignetting, despite the extra length with the filter and the slightly wider lens.

Also looking for a hood for a Canon 50mm f1.8 type II that would not vignette. Preferably on the smaller/lower profile side. Can anyone point me to a specific hood that they have used on this lens that does not vignette? Thank you

I haven't tested it (I haven't used my Canon lens in a while), but I picked up a Walz straight vented hood which was 40mm. Relatively low profile and looks decent.

The original Canon shades shouldn't vignette:

OK, I'm confused. The other 2 most recent threads in this forum are about this exact topic. A lot of redundant information and questions among these three threads. Hmmm.

I'm particularly interested in hearing from *anyone* who has purchased a 40mm lens hood that is advertised for the Fuji X10. Yes, the Fuji X10 has 40mm filter threads and both Fuji and aftermarket manufacturers offer hoods and filters for it. So, I've looked at the hoods offered online (I happened to visit Amazon) that are 2-part jobs where a filter can be inserted in between the parts. The filter can be a standard threaded filter, of which size I can't remember but its a common size. I'd be just as interested in a hood that don't allow for a filter if they work well on my Canon 50/1.8.

I have read in less authoritative sites that the hoods are not true 40mm or perhaps not the right thread pitch to fit on a Canon 50mm 1.8 (or any of the other 40mm oddball lenses out there).

Someone must have looked into this. I don't want to buy one of these hoods and find it doesn't work. Then be stuck with something so temptingly functional yet not. Yeah, I know they aren't terribly expensive, but why shell out any amount of money for something useless to me? If they work however....

Thank you to whoever out there has an experience to share.

I do own Lens serial # 2025XX in the Canon 50 f1.8, and have measured this filter thread to be 40.5. A 40mm filter will go on with resistance as we say in machine shop practice. After I measured; I went out and purchased the Fuji X10 hood, with a 40.5mm thread which flies on smoothly with no resistance. This is a great vented hood replacement for the original S42 hood.

All I can say is that my Canon 50mm f1.8 (vers. II black/chrome, don't have the serial number at hand right now) has a nominal 40mm thread. I have several filters for it, some vintage Canon ones (very thin) and some modern aftermarket (Marumi etc.) and they are labeled "40mm" and all fit smoothly without binding. I have no experience with the Fuji X10 accessories.
I realize this is an older thread and rfaspen has probably sorted out his questions or problems by now, but to anyone who is looking into the same issue, my humble suggestion would be to get the original lens hood (S-42), it shouldn't be too difficult or expensive to find on Ebay with a bit of patience. It works perfectly and as it is a clamp on type, it is also less fiddly then any threaded solution if you are working with filters at the same time.

Another reason the clamp-on hoods work better is it's much faster to change a filter because you can remove the clamp/hood assembly from the lens, instead of having to juggle the camera while making the change.
