Answer:
I just ordered and received this lens today. It didn't include the hood. I was disappointed as this hood clearly shows up in the illustration of the lens. I'm tempted to make contact with the seller to see if this was missing from my order. Otherwise, I do not know how much it would cost.

I still use them, and have since my old 35 mm film days (that's 35 years of not damaging the end of a lens, including a couple of Himalayan treks). The hood also protects the glass, and many consider that adequate. I just can't get past the relative cost to replace should my clumsiness finally break through, so to speak. see less
