Glad you went back to the FZ200.  I did much the same thing.  Be very careful with the hood.  The ones on my FZ200's were VERY stiff to mount or dismount and I'm pretty sure that mounting and/or dismounting with the lens extended screwed up my first one.  I fixed that with the current one by filing and sanding down the locking lugs until I had a positve lock; but with very little torque required to seat and unseat.  In the meantime, don't mount/dismount, store/unstore the hood with the camera ON, unless yours needs low torque - some apparently do; but mine didn't.  The FZ150 was perfect right out of the box, and served as my model for the feel on wanted on the 200.

I swear my current one acts differently than the early one I had.  I'd be very interested to see how you think your two compare.

Enjoy.
