Default Contax 645 80mm lens hood alternative?

Do you know a Contax 645 80mm lens hood alternative?

I need the hood for my Zeiss 80mm 2.0 lens for Contax 645 MF camera.

They sell for over $100 on ebay. Is there a way I could use a lens hood from a different lens?

You would be looking for a GB-72
that is the hood you need.

They are hard to find
you can try inquiring with the following
BHphoto.com

Finally, I bought a Chinese non-OEM lens hood. so far works ok.
