Thanks for letting me know. I received a new camera bag + was folding laundry when I unboxed the lens, so not sure if it dropped out somewhere or it just didn't have onenop. i think because it's not necessary for this type of lens since they went as far as to ditch the aperture ring to make it as pancake as possible. it's even plastic and from china.
when i was in vegas, i dropped this lens from about a meter high (no rear or front cap on), and it hit right on my first step-up ring and bounced just as high. omg, and no damage as i can tell. lol
i believe the 18 (having the aperture ring) has a hood like the 35.
