Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN
 
I've managed to pick up a used copy of one of these very cheaply from Ebay - priced partly because the hood is missing. Seems to be called LH586-01 and costs over 20. Anyone know - how necessary is the hood? Is it worth it? Are there cheaper lookalikes available?

It's an effective hood, but it's a bit big and TBH the lens is very resistant to flare, so I hardly ever use mine. It's likely that the hood is a custom Sigma design, but you can always use a screw-in one.
