despite the likelihood that FZ200 users will have to stop down the new F2.8 lens to at least F4 to F4.5 to achieve the sharpest results from the maximum 600 mm focal length when shooting wildlife images (where DOF may otherwise be too shallow and the need for accurate focus much more important than when using the 150)

At a distance to subject of 25 ft. and full telephoto of 108mm, the depth of field using f/2.8 is 0.46 ft.
At the same distance using f/4.0 it is 0.64 ft.
Using f/5.0 it is 0.81 ft.

At greater distances, the DoF only gets larger. Not much to worry about, IMO.
