I just want to ask, what if my 58mm lens hood is seen on the photographs when I turn my zoom lens in 18mm wide, is there a much wider opening lens hood for that 58mm lens?

This Pentax lens hood is used to protect the end of the 55mm f/4 lens. This hood will prevent scratches or other damage if your lens is dropped or bumped. The hood has a 77mm filter thread.

The Massa lens hoods will work. But attaching/removing it to/from the lens is not convenient: the hood is screwed into the filter thread, and a lock ring on the hood is used to make sure the hood is at the correct position. It's OK if you plan to attach the hood to the lens all the time.

In addition, attaching/removing filter is clumsy as well.

I recommend the genuine Pentax lens hood. It is bayoneted to the lens (not to the filter thread), much more convenient.
