Thanks,

I'll 2nd Stu's recommendation of a regular vented 39mm screw-in hood (there's an ebay seller named heavystar who also sells them for cheap). When I had a Dual Range (I now have a regular Rigid), I used the "official" Leitz 12585 clip-on & while it certainly did the job & could be stored on the lens reversed (there's a special lens cap that fits over the hood when it's reversed, too), I found the 12585 to be overly large & the clip-on mechanism to be a PITA (I'm a keep the hood on the lens all the time kind of guy).

Slightly off-topic, but:

can these cheap hoods be used together with a filter, or do I need to buy the (expensive) clip-on one?

Yes, 39mm filter on the lens, then screw-in hood on filter.

I like keeping the hood on too. That is my main objection with the otherwise great inexpensive hoods on ebay. I personally like B+W's thick collapsible rubber hood for ease of use.

UNLESS...you have a Leitz E39 filter with NO front threads! Been there. Didn't get the hood on.

Check your filters. If they have threads, the 39mm hoods will work.

I, too, like B+W's thick collapsible rubber hood. So, not to challenge ray_g's opinion, but I later decided to swap it out for one of the inexpensive hoods off ebay. Reason being that I like to be able to slip my camera into my carry-around camera bag and be able to quickly pull it out and be ready for a shot when the situation arises. (note that I'm talking about when I'm walking around town, not when I'm putting the camera bag away for the night) And the concern I had with the B+W collapsible hood is that it doesn't provide the front lens element any protection when I slip the camera back into the bag whereas the inexpensive solid hood does. Hope this explanation makes sense. Oh, and I found that a 48mm snap-cap covers fits nicely into the front of the inexpensive sloping front solid hood so I still put a cap on when putting the camera bag away for the night. Sorta the best of both worlds, although the solid hood does add significant length to the overall lens profile which might be a challenge for some camera bags.
