Works well on the Panasonic GM5 ...

Be careful with the hood - I have had no issues (but) a slight low pressure left twist on the hood springs will release the catch before extending/retracting it. It can be push-pulled over the detent if required but I wonder if this is wise. Also it will deform against the springs if set down hood extended. Carrying it in a bag with hood extended might not be advisable.

Brilliant hood design but there have been tales of woe about the hoods falling apart and perhaps some sensible precautions when being used are worth taking.

There is a simple after market Canon ET 78ii replacement hood from JJC that works on the 40-150 2.8 (about $14 on Amazon)
