Oddly, the two 50-200 hoods are not interchangeable. The only known SWD alternative would be a 67mm screw-in hood which, while certainly smaller is rather less convenient and not reversable for stowing. You get back a lot of bag space, though.

You can get hoods that have a screw on filter attachment and then the hood itself bayonets onto that, and I think they are reversible.

Spend a week with the 40-150 Pro and you may find yourself forgetting all about the 50-200. It's really that good and my 50-200 now gathers dust.

But with the EC-14, the versatility of the 50-200mm expands considerably, with virtually no loss of quality. Focus speed of course is not on a par, but if that's not a serious issue, I know which way I'd go.
