Of course this design is moot for anyone shooting on an APS-C body, since vignetting isn't an issue the way it is on a FF body. some screw on hoods will also work as long as you don't intend to use a filter in addition to the hood, however even a slim filter and a step-up ring are likely to cause vignetting at 28mm.

If anyone is still looking for a wide angle lens hood for FF use of the 28-135, this is the one I bought this year. Works well with no vignetting at 28mm. I do not use filters, so this is screwed straight onto the lens. It also comes with a 95mm lens cap and makes the lens look mean!

The question if there is a shade for the 28-135/4-4.5 pops up regularly - there are several dedicated threads around. I am sure somebody will be happy with your recommendation for a screw in metal hood. So, on behalf of those people: thank you

Thanks for the additional options, many will probably be happy to skip using filters in order to have a functional hood without the hassle of 3D printing a part.

If OTOH, you want both a filter *and* a hood at the same time on a FF body, then the options scant.

I've been using the same hood and adapter bushing since I first posted this and it both works well for usefully minimizing flare and has proven to be durable. The only mod I've done (aside from blacking out the front side of the ring with a sharpie) is to put a few tiny slips of double-stick tape between the barrel and the bushing, this keeps the hood from shifting when it gets bumped and has eliminated the need to check hood alignment every time I take the lens out of my gear pack.

I hope my design has proven useful to at least a few of you...
