The FZ200 hood - the fix
Mine has not "broken in" despite many, many removals and installations. My FZ150 was fine almost from day one; but the FZ200 was still very stiff after 7 weeks of usage. Hood installations and removals probably exceed 50 at this point and the self storing detent was even stiffer - to the point where I was afraid to try it. So I had to do something.
