I know this is an odd question with everything being at our finger tips on the web... but do any of you have an idea of where I can find a non-petal shaped lens hood for my 18-125mm Sigma lens (62mm filter size?)

I shoot sports in the desert and this weekend noticed light glare coming in from the side. Also, I'd like to keep as must dust off of the lens surface as possible. I cover it with my hand when it kicks up (the end of the hood) but the petal shape leaves holes. I have searched up and down google, any idea on sites?

Is there a length that is correct for that lens, i.e. will a hood over what length show up in the shot?

Thanks!

I believe these might work better:
